BTCsub token Anonymous 05/28/2020 (Thu) 17:57:26 No. 954 [Reply] [Last]
Does anyone know about BTCsub token ? is it a scam or a real deal?
2 posts omitted.
Do you think they will keep their promise of paying me USD70Million in ETH if I invest 1ETH and actively grow my 3x14 matrix referral network to 14th level? Their github repo does show up any code of Conversion and data oracle contracts mentioned in their BTCsub whitepaper. Which is strange
>>954 >70 million for $300 investment >And a pyramid scheme of referrals ??? Scam
(109.38 KB 702x509 postitNOOOOOOW.png)
I personally don't think it's a scam or a pure pyramid scheme. They are implementing WorkLock-controlled referral plan in order to distribute their tokens economically as they want to avoid paying hefty amounts to FANG corporations and enriching them farther. So referral-based WorkLock smart contract is not their primary business model. They are also implementing a proof-of-asset subprotocol to display cryptoassets under management transparently in realtime. So I can't say it's scam as the 3x14 matrix gets terminated irreversibly at 14th level. You can't grow your network of referrals any farther. Plus their total supply of tokens hardcapped. They can't arbitrarily mint new BTCsub tokens either.
Amazing ! I also came across this and was thinking about investing! This really sheds more light! Seems legit to me!
This is certainly a good investment opportunity as well as a means to expand the capital. Just had small initial query indeed, whether only depositing 1 ETH is the only pre-requisite to enter the investment plan to receive more ETH in return as we refer and get more people on the platform or is there more to it?

Used Business Desktop Thread Anonymous 04/01/2020 (Wed) 01:58:46 No. 785 [Reply] [Last]
I made a bunch of posts on rikchan about old business desktops that I will copy here. you can get a machine with moderate performance at a very good price-to-performance ratio if you are okay with some of the tradeoffs I will discuss. Perhaps this information will be helpful to my fellow /g/tards.

>>785 I got one of these recently. >Optiplex 790 DT >16 GB 1333MHz DDR3 >2TB WD Green >i5 2400 This was only around $80 including shipping. I added the following parts >120GB and 275GB SSDs >Nvidia Gt 710 >new thermal paste This thing kicks ass. Probably gonna upgrade to an i7 soon for better CPU performance. Otherwise I have no complaints. Lack of SATA 3 and USB 3 isn't an issue for me since I primarily use Debian Linux and everything is still super fast. I just want more threads to run more VMs at once.
>16 GiB ram >2 TB hard drive nice, that's worth the 80 on its own. and yeah there's something neat about realizing you can rescue old hardware with SSDs - I'd rather use an 8-year old CPU with an SSD boot drive than a modern CPU on spinning rust. You can get little PCIE cards that will add USB3 ports. I suppose if you are good at networking then saturating a wired gigabit link gives you ~100 MiB/s which is a fair bit better than the 35/15 MiB/sec that USB2 gives you in real-world bandwidth. although, I do notice that about 95% that I am trying to move big batches of files around at home it is either for games or music, none of which are necessarily essential. It's no problem pushing a ~100 KiB source tarball around even over usb2 or even wifi b.
>>862 I plan on upgrading to an i7 2600 soon and eventually 32GB RAM since that's unofficially supported on this model. Unfortunately this machine came with only 4GB DIMMs so I'll have to buy all new RAM. But they're probably compatible with the Core2 shitbox I use as a server that has 6GB right now so that'll get a nice upgrade most likely.
The USFF offerings are most interesting, like ThinkCentre Tiny. They're usually upgradeable, so you can have a really small desktop with a proper CPU and maxed with RAM and storage. Been thinking about getting one for a home server, that, a Rasbperry Pi, or ideally something custom so I can get rid of my shitty WD NAS.

Hey /g/

I need help

Newfag, know fuck all about tech, but am trying to build a computer to be completely anonymous online

Want to put Devuan on a rasberrypi 4, but have know idea how.
Can one one of you give me a step by step.

Also if there are any wholes in my opsec, please point them out to me.

Pic related. The anon that inspired this whole half assed attempt.

All phones are compromised and worst spyware then it's insane to throw away x86 and then talk what phone to get.

>rasberrypi 4
Is it the one with the WiFi ? They stopped making non WiFi ones some time ago even rasberrypi zero has wifi now. I think you can puzzle this together yourself. And answer why.
<LMFFO! rasberrypi zero is the cheapest option and has no pins to be the cheapest. LMFFO! Lets give it wifi capability! And no pins! LMFFO!

You know my x86 PC has no capability to contact WiFi or Bluetooth or cell network. This is why its safe. The hypervisor can do shit if its disconnected from internet.
>>399 All of this for what? To shitpost? If glowniggers want you they'll get you, retard.
>>292 If you can hack the pentagon, you can surf anonymously 99% of the time. To make sure you never get caught, you must surf the internet only 20x in your life.

>>424 The cheapest, shittiest WiFi chips are very cheap thanks to IoT cancer. You can buy Chigger "smart" bulbs from chink sites for less than $5.

Why aren't you using a microkernel hypervisor? Anonymous 04/20/2020 (Mon) 08:01:09 No. 873 [Reply] [Last]
SculptOS (Genode Framework+seL4) is a secure microkernel operating system that can easily be used to run virtual machines. It supports a variety of real hardware including Intel WLAN and iGPUs. It's less than 30MB and boots almost instantly, and even has a basic GUI built in. https://genode.org
There is a level of niche that if crossed you become less secure. Linux at least has a lot of eyes on it.
>>880 The very nature of a microkernel makes it more secure. L4 takes it a few steps further. Read up on it and you'll understand why it's superior.
>>873 You literally give z e r o evidence to back up your claims.

>>199 Anon, you should use Mullvad AND Tor together from a reasonably secure OS like Tails. That is all :^)
>>949 A VPN doesn't solve everything. It helbs to make it more exbensive for the glownigger boomers to try and catch you. Using a VPN is fairly common today, even moreso given that there are more people working from home than there were before. It just doesn't draw as much attention as Tor would. Tor puts you on a list, no doubt about it. Doesn't mean that Tor is bad - you just need something to serve that first hop or in a secure manner.

Red-pill me (and I'm sure others) on Quantum computing. Lets not get left behind in a new computing age.
>>707 It’s a completely meme. Not useful for anything outside of some very niche scientific applications.
>>708 yet
It's just multi-state computing, like using a trinary or larger base. Currently our computers work with little pseudo-switches that are either on or off, 0 or 1. Using multi-state switches you can exponentially increase computing power BUT... it just means a faster computer. It's not like it's going to magically turn into some kind of AI singularity due to inherent mathematical limitations, namely the "curse of dimensionality". Also keep in mind our computers, even quantum computers, currently use a flow of electrons... which means they use mono-dimensional energy. It's possible though to use other energy forms, even biochemical energy forms as well as modulated energy forms, like light wavelengths in order to create photonic processors. And then of course, if you want to go full science fiction you could theoretically create a quantum temporal processor using tachyons. Where a calculation could be performed and then the results of the calculation could be sent back in time by a few nanoseconds. So basically the computer would know the results of a calculation before it even performed it. And the further back in time the weirder it would get. For example if information could be sent back in time by a few seconds it would be possible to create a computer that would know what you want before you even knew you wanted it. Essentially an interface-less computer. The interface would be there, but you wouldn't actually need to use it.

Arch, Gentoo, anything not Ubuntu. Really it's mostly user preference, if you're new to Linux I would recommend Arch over Gentoo. But that's about all. "Secure" is vague, securing your system is mostly up to you and not being stupid. Just avoid shit like Windows or Mac OS which have more security holes than a block of Swiss cheese fucked by a pack of starving sex crazed Nambian children.

>>942 This is a good thread. You should consider stickying it. The politics boards are a decentralized OSINT information aggregation attack against the aristocracy. Every board should have a thread like this encouraging people to collect and organize information for expedient consumption instead of trolling about niggers.
>>943 OP here. Thank you. /g/ seems like a reasonable place to keep it. Maybe sticky it there, I agree it is important to share and build on this information in times like these. Really "we" should be working to create private networks for ourselves (not based on larping). The FEDs have moved us pretty high up the list. I still don't have anyone I can trust irl.
