Re: Bitcoin.org adding paid advertisements

I have seen theymos frequently denying ads in his auctions too. But yeh, sometimes you might accept an ad that ends up being a scam. Unfortunate truth. Actually theymos is the one in that github discussion suggesting to put the ad in the footer and to put a disclaimer (to emphasize it's only an ad),...

Re: Bitcoin.org adding paid advertisements

I think this is hilarious since bitcoin.org bashed bitcoin.com for having ads on the page. I highly disagree. There is a huge difference between recommending 1 wallet/exchange to new users based on payments and showing a transparent (with disclaimer) advertisement in the footer. Running ads to earn...

Re: I'm Edward Miroslav, Founder of Primedice.com, the biggest Bitcoin gambling site, AMA.

Hi, First of all thanks for running a great gambling site. I agree using bitcoin for gambling simply makes sense. And, as DiceSites.com owner, I can attest that you guys have been the biggest bitcoin gambling site for a long while now :) I got 3 questions: 1. In my impression most bitcoin communitie...

Re: More evidence of suppression on /r/Bitcoin ?

First of all important to emphasize that moderators are not in control of any voting. I am just saying this before this is used for propaganda for an argument " /r/bitcoin is censoring BitPay ". In a way your topic here can be interpret as " /r/bitcoin is censoring BitPay " for some people even if y...

Re: Security bounties?

As a security researcher, I would like that.. since theymos made them pretty high :x ;) It's important to realize bitcointalk uses XAU, which means currently it ranges between 0.255 and 25.5 BTC depending on severity. I have to be honest that this is pretty big and smaller rewards seems fair to me t...

Re: Why is bitcoin.com "scammy" ?

I agree it's not actually "scammy" (not sure what the definition of that even is?) But "one option" that is based on how much money is paid, is at least "not trustworthy" and at worst "sketchy". So I personally assume that those IRC ops mean "not trustworthy" with "scammy". I agree that there is not...

Re: Why is bitcoin.com "scammy" ?

I am personally not on IRC and don't know any of the operators there, but I can somewhat agree with that statement. The biggest problem I have on a "scammy" level are the pages: http://buy.bitcoin.com http://wallet.bitcoin.com (and debit card page) Personally I would never refer any new bitcoin user...

Hope Roger and/or admin can reply to this. I am really curious who to contact if I find a security vulnerability and if I can expect some reward for it.. Thanks.

Security bounties?

Hi, Bitcointalk/theymos always put a high priority on security/privacy and even has security bounties which are almost equivalent of PP/FB. I think that is important considering a lot of (prominent) bitcoin users hang out on a place like such forum. My question: does bitcoin.com offer bounties for s...
