Bitcoin core developer Gavin Andresen has expressed regret in publishing his blog backing Craig Wright’s claim that he is, Satoshi Nakamoto. More specifically, Andresen claims it was a mistake to publish his post before the much-scrutinized post published by Craig Wright. Bitcoin Foundation chief scientist and core developer Gavin Andresen is one of the earliest […]
According to Wright, Kleiman provided extensive help with the writing of the so-called Bitcoin whitepaper, the document that introduced the digital …

As /u/winlifeat posted here, Craig was user 'e62d5e53-0dbc-44be-9591-725cd55ca9dd' at the Mtgox exchange. With this identifier, it's possible to look up his trades in the 2014 leak. I posted the raw data in this pastebin, you can import it into spreadsheet software like Excel to play with it yourself.
He started trading at 22/04/2013, this is just after the crash of the April 2013 bubble (or the 'Cyprus bubble'). He lost interest pretty quickly, because activity stopped 27/04, only to come back 25/11 around the peak of the last bitcoin bubble. His average price is actually $ 120 and he bought around 50 bitcoins, but his last buy was 17 bitcoins at around $ 1200. He ends up with a balance of just under 15 bitcoins when mtgox shuts down, so he probably lost another few bitcoins with trading. (The trade data in the leak stops at November 2013)
Another option is to use cash to buy a pre-paid Visa (or MasterCard or American Express) card from a supermarket or convenience store. Then, create an account with an online exchange, and use the prepaid card to fund the account, then use the funds to buy bitcoins. To be sure to cover your tracks, use Tails/TOR when connecting to the online exchange.
Bitcoin price remains above $ 440 after retreating from $ 450 earlier in the day. The market has not managed a higher high this week, and decline seems evident for the first time in months.

I recently installed Bitcoin Core v0.12.1 on my home server (running Windows 7) and wanted to allow it to accept incoming connections and used the guide found here: https://bitcoin.org/en/full-node#windows-7 to ensure I did everything that was needed. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been showing any incoming connection and when I used the connection tool recommended in the guide (https://bitnodes.21.co/#join-the-network), it says my server is unreachable.
I have already setup port forwarding for port 8333 to both my server’s IP address, 192.168.1.105 (wireless) & 192.168.1.129 (ethernet). I ran a port scan on the following websites and they all indicate that Port 8333 is open:
- Ping.eu Port Check
- WhatMyIP Port Scanner
- T1 Shopper Port Scanner
(I would provide links for the above scanners, but I cannot post more than 2 links)
I also created two rules in Windows Firewall (under Inbound Rules) with the following properties:
- Local Port – 8333
- Remote Port – All Ports
- Scope – Local & Remote IP address set to Any IP Address
- Domain, Public, and Private all checked
- All programs that meet the specified conditions checked
- Set to allow the connection
- Rule is enabled
There are two rules with the above settings, one for TCP and one for UPD. Even with all the above setup, the “Join the Network” tool on Bitnodes website (second link from the top) still says my node is unreachable and the debug window inside the program shows 0 incoming connections and 8 outgoing connections.
I’m not sure what else needs to be setup since I completed everything in the guide and port 8333 is definitely open. Any help or information with this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
This question already has an answer here:
Since my computer is always on, I was wondering if it would be worth mining bitcoins or Litecoins, it is a gaming pc so it is a bit more built up then just a normal computer.
My main question is would it be worth my time setting one up.
If I was to set one up, what programs should I use, what pools should I connect to, and where should I set up my wallet?
