I even have my own piggy bank method in Bitcoin - I generate random locks like 329093, 679042, 129109, 91063, (using brainwallet passphrase) then I forget those numbers, I do it on purpose, so that I wouldn't even able to spend it randomly. Only when there will be 999999 payments made, it will be relatively easy to spend + at that time Bitcoin rate will be astronomically high.

WTF? Your coins are gone.

[]giszmo 5 points 4 hours ago

Not sure what he was talking about but I understood it like this: He made brain wallets based on "correct battery staple horse 329093" and thus locked away the funds in that wallet until he remembers the number. The number being just 6 digits allows him though to brute force it at a later point in time but this being an extra effort, he will not spend the coins or even know how much there are until he really needs them.

I also have some such dead coins. Distributed 1000 paper wallets with 3mɃ each. I promised to not take back the money until a year later. The oldest hold the money since two years but I consider this my last reserve. Last time I checked, less than 5% were actually spent.

And then there is that one dollar I sent to a non-discoverable address in my HD wallet. I know it sits at m/44'/0'/0'/0 but I suppose it will be discovered in the future when wallets simply check for more stuff in an HD wallet.

exactly. I wish everybody could use some simple mechanics like this to save some of their Bitcoins for the future.

[]efxco -1 points 3 hours ago*

I'm not saying that my brainwallet passphrases are exactly 6-digits "542892". This is not the first time I'm posting this type of stuff for the public & everybody here saying that its stupid. But in fact, this is my savings advice to you. You should do the same.

Its not stupid. Listen to me. I've written the script where I created my own complicated algorithm that generates VERY SECURE passphrase (which looks like private key) will be used as a base to generate Brain Wallet address. This complicated algorithm I've "invented" allows something like "bicycle locks", but these locks are available only to me, and they are secured from outer world, because the locks contain exactly 999999 combinations & its some sort of virtual obstacle I've created to secure the funds from myself. (I can't find them easily, in order to do this I will have to try all 999999 combinations which sounds for me like very complicated combination)

I know that if I'll need these funds back, all I need to do is bruteforce my own secure phrases from 000000 to 999999. But meanwhile I've made around 100 payments ($10 each), and its not even close to 999999. I'll be close to 10000 payments at the end of the retirement, so its going to be something like $10 * 10000 = $100,000 hidden in depth of my secure brainwallets. I'm hiding these funds for retirement. And I do it offline for a very long-secure phrases.

Before using this method I was saving on a single offline Bitcoin address. Its not very secure way to have your own savings. I was spending my savings very often. Because Bitcoins are very easy to spend, and there's just too much places appearing where you can spend your Bitcoins which increases temptation to do so.

Basically, instead of remembering a non-sensical password, you remember some phrase (in your brain, thus brainwallet. Do you get it? do you?) which is then fed to some online algorithm to generate the password. As can be expected as soon as you do so the dudes at the brain-wallet site* keep a copy of your keys and monitor the relevant bitcoin address until you're stupid enough to deposit some butts into it.

And then you get the "I lost my butts! but my brainwallet was really safe! How!?" posts. (note: It usually is not how)

*Even if they don't do so, 99% of brainwallets are paragraphs from Atlas shrugged, or that one from XKCD

if those numbers are on the end of a good passphrase, like he claims, it's not that bad

except for the awfulness of brain wallets to start with, and now that brain wallet crackers know to add a few numbers to the end, all of his coins are going to be stolen at once

HHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!



Not going to link the whole thing but pages 41-43 of the complaint relates to at least one of the silk road murder-for-hires that ulbricht has yet to be charged with

A SR admin named CG was was caught delivering cocaine and was flipped by a team including the 2 agents, Force and Bridges, charged with stealing from DPR.

On jan 25th, CG showed Bridges how to login an do vendor password and pin resets.

THAT SAME NIGHT, the Silk Road website suffered a serious of major vendor thefts. All these thefts were via ... password and pin resets.

On Jan 26th, CG continued to debrief the cops on how to to Silk Road admin stuff. Bridges left early that day and was not present.



Later that day, DPR caught wind of the thefts and contacted a major drug dealer name Nob to have CG (who was actually Bridges) killed.

Law enforcement contacted the real CG who denied the attacks. DPR knew is was the CG account because there's logs for password resets of course.

The major drug dealer Nob happened to actually be the other DEA agent, Force.

DPR paid Nob (Force) $80k to have CG (Bridges) killed.

Force then helped the real CG stage death photos.

It then goes on to establish proof that Bridges transferred out at least 20,000 bitcoins into another account that Force owned to be liquidated through his shell company.
