  Alldocube X - Applock
Posted by: Carsten - 2019-01-26, 06:13 PM - Forum: Uncategorized - No Replies

I know this is a bit off topic.... I bought two of these tablet (see video below) on IGG. They arrived yesterday. In the settings there is a menu item called "Applock".  I posted this question in their forum:

"I just received two  Alldocube X devices. Looks fine, but in the settings there is an app called “Applock” that is not documented as far as I can see. If I click it it shows a lock screen in Chinese that expect a pattern to unlock. What is the app for? It’s a bit concerning because of privacy. Please explain."

I wonder if it's the Chinese that are spying on us. Huawei is for instance under attack for spying using their mobile network infrastructure hardware and more places in Europe don't want them to provide hardware for the 5G network. Is it the same with Alldocube?  I think we should be very careful with Chinese products especially if you are doing some really serious million dollar business.

  Dash Green ($DASHG) Masternode Coin Review
Posted by: Carsten - 2019-01-26, 02:02 PM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - No Replies

A couple of months old but worth reading:

"I have been a fan of masternode (MN) coins for a while. A good resource for researching MN coins is: https://masternodes.online. Getting in early is important for many MN coins, since the more MN nodes are started, the more your reward redistributed to other MN’s. Also, the price of MN’s tends to inflate over time.
I recently came across $DASHG in a YouTube video by Chico Crypto: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHfB7My0jXU&t=436s. This coin is just over a week old, so I decided to do my own research to see if this is a good buying opportunity. Here’s what I found:

[Image: 1*HQTRRrOcEtKQSJlrE5iguw.png]

  1. DASHG is a fork of PIVX, but uses DASH tokenomics by design. Their reward structure is above.

  2. Updated details: https://masternodes.online/currencies/DASHG/

  3. Blockexplorer can be found here: http://explorer.dashgreen.net

  4. The premine was 2.5% (450,000 DASHG), which goes to the developer. The developer is anonymous and goes by the handle “Mastermind” on Discord.

  5. The developer wallet is found below. Activity has been minimal, which is a good sign. This suggests that the developer isn’t just creating a bunch of masternodes to gain a monopoly over newly minted coins. Also the Dev reports having only 2 MN’s. The total supply right now 537,000 tokens, so the Dev currently holds about 66% of the total circulating supply. This is a bit intimidating but the ROI is currently 1753% so the relative amount controlled by the Dev will continue to decline as new coins are minted.

[Image: 1*qVpooAuM8RcxaRVs99Lp8A.png]

5. Masternode collateral is 1000 DASHG. There are currently 96 MN’s created. The rate of MN creation is relatively slow (5 MN/day at most). This is a good sign, suggesting the Dev isn’t just generating a bunch of nodes for himself.

[Image: 1*1EXoZvU1pl8QYvKBl5n6rA.png]

6. DASHG is currently being traded on 3 exchanges(Graviex and Crex24 have the highest volume).
7. Upcoming Green paper release and product release are promised and in the pipeline.
8. DASHG community is active on Discord, but the Telegram group (https://t.me/Dashgreenecochat) has only 26 members, which could be a good opportunity to get in early before the crowd.

[Image: 1*psKdgNNla9XkC5OHtn79BQ.png]

9. DASHG appears to be in accumulation mode and has good support around 30,000 sat range.

[Image: 1*0ni1qE13R7BxaEAthqiPXg.png]

10. Starting my MN was quite seamless. I started a server on Vultr for $5/month and run my MN without any issue. Instructions can be found here: https://github.com/databir/DashGreenCoin_MN. If you have less than 1000 DASHG, you can take advantage of Gentarium shared node service: https://mn.gtmcoin.io.
Overall summary:
DASHG is a promising new MN coin with a growing community. The only disadvantage that I see is an anonymous Developer. Investors in MN coins are often wary about exit scams, in which the Developer dumps the premine on exchanges. Most privacy coins these days have anonymous teams and many are legitimate projects. Could this be an exit scam? No way to know for sure. However, so far, I have not yet seen any suspicious activity or red flags by the Developer wallet and conversations with him on the Discord channel has been only pleasant. I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. Overall, this is a high-risk high-reward play (even Bitcoin these days is an extremely high-risk with a massive drop to $3400 today, holy cow!). I’m going to hold onto my DASHG and see where it takes me. I’m liking this community so far!

Exclamation cex.io warning
Posted by: Carsten - 2019-01-23, 09:09 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (18)

Cex.io is providing a nice service for converting fiat to crypto and vice versa. You go through the usual KYC and start trading. After a while when the amounts become "significant" they will ask you for the source of your funds, your salary and much more private information!! It's crazy. Bitstamp also went crazy like this. This crazy friction between fiat and crypto is really harmful for the further growth of crypto use.

"We are texting you in regards to your query about our data security approach. We apologize for such a delay in responding to your request.

As you were informed previously, in order to provide you with our services in full accordance with AML/KYC policies we need to clarify the initial sources of your funds. For this reason, we collect a certain set of information and documents regarding your activity. Our request is a standard procedure that is obligatory for all our customers at some point. We understand that this process may be inconvenient for some users.

Security of your personal information is a top priority for us. We have built a trustful platform employing the latest technologies which help us to store your personal data in a safe and protected way.

Be kindly informed that we are fully committed to ensure compliance with GDPR requirements to protect the personal data of our Users. 

Please note that we have implemented necessary technical and organizational measures to provide the security of your data and save it from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. For instance, such measures include encryption, 2FA, access control, regular testing of our systems resilience etc. Assessment of our systems resilience is carried out on a regular basis.

 Moreover, with respect to data security, CEX.IO is fully compliant with PCI DSS, which is an information security standard designated for merchants, financial institutions and payment service providers in order to ensure the safety of cardholders' data. You can check our certificate of compliance here. PCI DSS certificate of compliance is issued by the independent auditors on the basis of annual audit we carry out. Moreover, our payment system providers are PCI DSS compliant as well.

Upon expiration of this period we will erase your personal data.

"Please be informed, that currently, there are still a few things we would kindly ask you to clarify.

To be more specific, I have compiled a short list for your convenience:

  1. Please find attached a form, that we ask to be downloaded, filled and signed;

  2. We have to confirm the origin of your funds and to trace the movement of funds to your CEX.IO account, therefore, please describe the sources of both your crypto and fiat funds. Please make sure there are documents/screenshots that may confirm your words. For instance: your fiat source of funds may be confirmed by a bank statement that represents your salary or other incomes; as for crypto funds - screenshots from other platforms that show how you bought the crypto should be provided.
If there is anything else you would like us to clarify for you - let me know.
Kind regards,

"Thank you for your reply.

Please be informed, that as it is stated in the email sent on the 17th of June 2018:

"Your account is verified, but in order to proceed with further operations on CEX.IO, we need to comply with requirements of AML/KYC policies, and collect a certain set of information and documents to confirm user's identity and source of funds deposited to CEX.IO."

Also, please note, that verification of your account and AML/KYC procedure are two different operations. We do realize that it may look like the AML/KYC procedure stands in direct contradiction to two of the most important aspects of cryptocurrency – privacy and disintermediation. However, in the current era of regulatory enforcement, it is impossible for us not to comply with international and domestic regulations, as we've seen the alternative to no regulation firsthand, when blockchain came to be associated with criminal activity, and what that means for blockchain companies.

At CEX.IO, we believe that AML/KYC policies would help to improve the community and dispel misconceptions about bitcoin and cryptocurrency. That is why we've developed certain procedures that can help us to stay in compliance with regulations and provide reliable service to our users.

I would like to note that this is a general procedure and usually, the whole process is simple and can be completed in a few letters of correspondence between the user and our Compliance department.

Additionally, I would like to emphasize, that we have not had any loss, misuse, alteration or destruction of users' data ever. Therefore, please be assured, your private data is absolutely safe.

Nevertheless, I have to note, that if you do not want to provide us with the information described in our previous emails (and this is your right), we will not be able to process your further deposit transactions and provide the full scope of our service.

I sincerely hope for your cooperation."

"Thank you for your answer.

Let me explain our information requests. You have agreed on CEX.IO’s Privacy Policy (https://cex.io/privacy) within the registration process on our Platform. According to this Privacy Policy: “Based on our legal obligations and legitimate interest we may request other documents for your identity verification and the sources of your funds confirmation for the purposes of money laundering and fraud prevention. To get more information about it please review our AML/KYC and Anti-Fraud policies.”

Also, according to CEX.IO’s Terms of Use (https://cex.io/terms) by accepting these Terms of Use, the User agrees with and accepts all the policies published on the Site (https://cex.io). So, we believe that you are acknowledged with all these Policies and CEX.IO Ltd has warned you in advance about the possibility of such requests regarding your funds' origin confirmation.

Moreover, in accordance with article 1.1 of CEX.IO’s AML Policy CEX.IO reserves the right to request up-to-date documents from the Users, even though they have passed identity verification in the past. Therefore, we believe that our requests are fully legal.

I hope that I have clarified these provisions and the standard character of this procedure.

Therefore, please let us know whether you are willing to continue further cooperation.

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your understanding. "

Why do they do this shit? (sry for language) It just makes me kinda mad that they do this.... First off it's so fking shady! 2nd it is destroying the coin! I once believed in this project... I don't anymore after this email here and lot's of others shady things they have done in the past... And since i spend quite a good amount of money(in my scale) on this coin i just get to see why you have to be careful about these ico's.

Let me know what you guys think about this.

Removed the exchange name and replaced it with "exchange" as i don't want to advertise it as i simply think this is shady and completely wrong.

I hope it will be better in a few weeks. Thanks to Hugues and Bob for posting. I'm reading all the posts though.
