QUESTION: Could Bitcoin related hardware (Trezors/Ledgers, PC’s used as nodes, cell phone wallets, Raspberry Pi nodes) be attacked or “infiltrated” by malicious HARDWARE such as the chips in the linked article?

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Sister found her seed phrase, doesn’t know which wallet she used

I've been trying to help her access her wallet she obtained YEARS ago when she was gifted bitcoin on the internet. This was longg ago and about a year ago she told me she had bitcoin but didn't know any of her info. Fast forward to this year, she moved and found the paper with her "password" but didn't know which email she used, as she's used a ton of aliases.

I checked out the paper and behold.. seed phrase to a wallet! I personally use coinbase, but coinbase doesn't use seed phrases for their wallets. S o o … I'm now trying to figured out how to go about testing this phrase? I don't want to plug it into a bunch of random apps for security purposed. I don't know what wallets are trustable or how I should best proceed with this.

Any tips?

**WOOP, THANKS GUYS. Now to figure out what exactly to do with it. I guess… sit on it? hah

But the EU threatened the board and senior SWIFT executives with criminal charges, and SWIFT folded.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

I used Western Union to wire 4000 dollars to my family back in the Middle East. I paid 78 dollars in transfer fees and 116 dollars in currency exchange fees. Let that sink in

I also choose the cash option if I were to go with a debit card the fee was going to be 320 dollars

Do you see the money being made? Does it make sense now why they try to fight a public ledger that anybody can view and use?

Borderless currency without those greedy entities telling us what to do

I’m butthurt
