Times have been tough, how about some holiday cheer? Free Reddit gold for the community

Usually this time of the year I'd be dropping my apparel brand's discounts for cyber monday in the community but I can't imagine anyone is feeling like spending very much money right now!

So, how about instead, I do something for you? I purchased 40,000 Reddit coins and will be gifting them out to anyone that replies!

I hope you all have a nice holiday.

Edit: Switching from Reddit gold to silver to accommodate more. Reddit changed their gift system, it appears.

Edit2: I need to work for a while but will return. Feel free to gift each other.

Crypto billionaire Brock Pierce: angry people at Puerto Rico community meeting were “paid actors from Chicago and New York”

You may've seen a video online where Puerto Ricans yell at Brock Pierce at a community meeting. Those people, he says, were paid actors. "Yeah, I’ve got full dossiers on them. They’re not even Puerto Rican. They flew in just to do that." https://breakermag.com/brock-pierce-gets-your-skepticism-what-were-attempting-to-do-is-a-bit-crazy/

Whoever has just added 6+Exahash power to BTC in the last month, thank you from the BCH community

I thank you for not diverting your hash rate to BCH and doing an overwhelming attack on the BCH network that would cost BCH investors unaware of this real risk a small fortune.

It would clearly be trivial to rob anyone who was daft enough to put money into the BCH network these days now that sort of power has been wielded.

For instance someone controlling that sort of hashing power (6+Exahashes) could easily pull off a 51% attack on the insecure BCH network with a mere 4 Exahashes protecting it.

A simple deposit of say 1000 BCH (Today's value of around $ 600k) to an exchange, wait for 2-3 blocks of deposit time, exchange to BTC, withdraw the BTC (Around 85BTC at writing), now fork the BCH chain to reissue the last 5-6 BCH blocks (perhaps taking 1-2 hours) merely omitting your original BCH transaction and ta-dah you have that 1000BCH back to double spend on another exchange and gained $ 600k of real value. If people were still in la-la land believing BCH was secure and continued using it you could simply repeat-rinse until they got the message.

Yes that exchange would bar you from depositing BCH again but nothing stopping others opening accounts and doing the same since the BCH network is simply pwned at this stage. (I have no idea how a decentralised exchange could even offer any protection out there for BCH holders at the moment other than merely dropping the coin).

The fact that you haven't done this and making meagre profits mining (6ExaHash/54Exahash = 11% of the block rewards = $ 11% of $ 12m per day = $ 1m per day) even though you could generate probably $ 1m+ in an hour of attacking BCH shows you believe in BTC and have ethics.

I'm not confident other miners would be so selfless so perhaps this is more a PSA that if you own any BCH this is a very real risk to be aware of as the attack would happen quickly.
