Lightning nodes are getting DDOS’ed, rumor is that someone from the 2x effort known as “BitPico” has taken credit for this. The Lightning services I’ve deployed have been attacked from the start, with botnets, etc. Deploying in adversarial conditions, decentralization is hard.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

I’m a 45 year old with arthritis and I built an anonymous futures exchange (Gold, Crude Oil, Sports, etc.) in C#; All trades settle in Bitcoin; Site is very rough, needs some QA / testing

The site: https://www.bitfutures.co

TLDR: I work in the futures industry and thought it might be fun to build a simple, anonymous futures exchange that uses Bitcoin as a settlement mechanism instead of fiat. My ultimate goal is to discover some talented futures traders to whom my company (a financial firm in hedge fund space) can allocate trading capital.

For now I'm just looking for 2 or 3 guys to buy (or short) a couple of different futures contracts on my site and let me know how things work for you. Shoot me an email and let me know you're participating. I'll try to provide a bid/ask in your market of interest so you can execute a market order or alternatively, try placing a limit order and I'll trade with you.

— ENHANCEMENTS FROM RECENT FEEDBACK —

  • SegWit support (bech32 addresses only; no P2SH support just yet);

  • New binary futures contracts (e.g. 'prediction markets') which settle at 0.00 or 100.00 based on the outcome of NHL hockey games and MMA fights. See the /markets page for a complete list of markets.

— WARNINGS —

  • I designed this site on my own so needless to say it doesn't have the level of polish that one might expect from a professional dev team. I acknowledge that it has a bit of an 'amateur' vibe right now and is still a work in progress.

  • Do NOT deposit more than $ 100.00 (apprx .01) worth of BTC for this trial.

  • Deposits will be visible in your ledger after two confirmations or approximately twenty minutes.

  • When withdrawing your funds, a transaction fee rate will be recommended to you. You can use that rate or choose a custom rate. If you enter a custom fee rate lower than 10 sat/byte, your transaction may remain unconfirmed for an inordinate amount of time. Please see https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/ for fee rate recommendations.

  • Bitcoin is the only crypto supported. Please don't send BCash.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

My girlfriend and I spent the last 3 months creating a unique crypto portfolio app – one tap trade imports, historical tracking, event triggers, etc. Can we have some feedback?

We posted a while back to this sub looking for beta testers, and we've finally finished fixing most of the bugs and implemented a couple of new stuff. Thank you to all who beta tested and your valuable feedback!!

Here's a quick gif on imgur: https://imgur.com/a/8y4t6

It has a minimalist UI, and if you trade a lot, you can import your trades directly from an exchange with your read-only API and it'll automatically calculate your average buy-ins/profits/price bought at that time, etc. Currently has ATH and price triggers but more coming.

It's only available on Play Store now, but our iOS version will be out in 2 weeks. No ads. Link to play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.trontal.alwaysahead&hl=en

We would highly appreciate it if you have any feedback for us, constantly looking to improve!

Theymos: “ETH is already centralized… The developers have a key which allows them to kill any chain. With this level of control, they can apply any rules they want. I expect them to go the way of Ripple (with AML etc.) once regulators wise up to this.”
