European Central Bank Sets Negative Interest on Deposits Less Than 1 Week After Bilderberg Conference

The Bilderberg conference ended less than a week ago and now the European Central Bank (ECB) has set negative interest rates on deposits (0.1%). Here are a few articles on it:

  1. Draghi Takes ECB Deposit Rate Negative in Historic Move
  2. Bitcoin Price Turns Upwards with European Banking Negative Interest
  3. ECB imposes negative interest rate
  4. European Central Bank Institutes Negative Interest Rate

The 2014 Bilderberg conference ended on June 1st. The ECB was represented there by Benoît Coeuré, a member of the Executive Board of the ECB.

Coincidence? Well, for the negative interest rates to be set up, I’d imagine it would take them longer than 1 week. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if they had prepared it, taken it to Bilderberg and talked it over there to mitigate the sticker shock for keeping savings in the bank.

The amount of deposits by EU banks at the ECB is around EUR 29 billion (as pointed out by the Economic Policy Journal – link #4 above) while the Fed has trillions (#4).

So the question is whether or not this is simply a small, dry-run of negative interest rates on deposits to see if it will run under the radar well enough to implement on a larger scale, e.g. at the Fed or at commercial banks. We’ll see.

But either way, conspiracy or not, or dry-run or not, this is a seismic shift in the methodology and manner of flow of money through the banking system.

The practical side of this is that it now costs money to save money. i.e. It’s like having a paper cup with a hole in the bottom; if you’re thirsty, you’d better drink fast. Or in other words, the banksters are trying to destroy your ability to save.

Did you still need a reason to buy bitcoins? This is it. Get some of your money into bitcoins, because that is what the banksters can’t steal.

And that, kids, is what we call watching history in the making… (Not all history is good…)

Crypto Wallet Backup – Adds Testnet and CONF files

Posted by Cynic | Posted in .NET, Bitcoin, C#, Money, Software, Solutions to Problems | Posted on 29-03-2014

This is an updated version of the GUI version of Crypto Wallet Backup.

It adds in 2 things:

  • Testnet folders
  • *.conf files

There are no other functional changes.

If you use testnet, and need your testnet wallet, then this is what you want.

If you also want to back up your *.conf files, then this is what you want.

I added these because I lost a truckload of testnet coins that I needed for some other software development. They took me a good deal of effort to get, and thanks to a software blunder… POOF they went! Sigh… Lesson learned… again… the hard way… as always…

I added in *.conf files because, well, might as well do that too as I’m sure some people might find it useful.

crypto-wallet-backup-add-testnet-conf

The 2 new options are obvious.

Download Crypto Wallet Backup v1.1 < Program Only

Download Crypto Wallet Backup v1.1 source < Source Code Only (not elegant, but effective)

The program is the same otherwise… well, I did freeze the form while the backup occurs, but it unfreezes once the backup is completed. That’s the only other change, and it’s only cosemetic. So, for more information, check out the original post here.

Hopefully that will help save some pain for someone.

Huntercoin: Mithril Edition Floating Windows

0

Posted by Cynic | Posted in Bitcoin, Games, Money, Software | Posted on 12-03-2014

Tags: , , ,

There are 6 floating windows to help you play the game:

  1. Mini Map
  2. Statistics
  3. Cell Info
  4. Target
  5. My Troops
  6. Chat

Mini Map

The mini map lets you zoom in and out and pan around the map in a small area. It is useful for monitoring different locations, tracking the crown, finding hearts, and finding coins.

Click the crown to instantly find the crown on the mini map and follow it.

Cick it again to stop following the crown.

During heated battles for the crown, this is essential information to have.

Click the heart to toggle heart visibility on the map.

Hearts give you extra hunters. They’re rare, so if you have a chance to get one, get it!

Click the coin to toggle coin visibility on the map.

These are the real prizes in the game. Collect as many as you can.

Double-click anywhere in the mini map to instantly navigate on the main map to that location.

Top

Statistics

The statistics window gives you quick information about how many hunter generals there are (players/teams), and how much loot they have.

It also tells you the total amount of loot that all players have, the amount that you can mine on the map, the name of the player that has the Crown of Fortune, and how many coins they have.

Top

Cell Info

Cell Info tells you about the specific square you have clicked on. If there are no hunters on the square, it is empty.

If there are hunters in that square, like here:

Then you will see all of their names and how many coins they have:

Click on a name to make it your “target”.

If you’ve closed the Cell Info window, you can easily open it up by double-clicking on any square. The Cell Info window will be restored along with information on that square.

Top

Target

Selecting a hunter in the Cell Info window makes that hunter’s team your current “target”.

Double-click on a hunter, or click “Center on Map” to quickly navigate on the map to where that hunter is.

If “Show Direction” is not greyed out, click it to toggle the hunter’s path so that you know where he is going. Paths are even numbered so that you can see how many blocks it will take for that hunter to reach a particular square on the map. <– This is a killer feature that will help you play much better! (Especially against bots!)

Enemy paths are drawn in cyan (light blue). (Your paths are drawn in red.)

The “Find” input lets you enter the name of any hunter to quickly locate them on a map.

To track a hunter, click the lock button. Your cell selection will follow that hunter.

Top

My Troops (moving not available in read-only preview)

The “My Troops” window is where you control your hunters.

Click on a colored tab to select the color of your team that you want to control.

In the first panel, select the name of the team. In the second panel, select the specific hunter that you want to control. Double-click on a hunter to center the map on that hunter.

Right-click on the square you want to move to. You can see the path that your hunter will take, along with the number of turns it will take to get to each point along the way.

The blue highlighted square is your currently selected hunter. The yellow highlighted square is your last selected square.

Your paths are drawn in red, unlike enemies that are drawn in cyan.

As you can see, in game chats appear in word bubbles, so you can quickly and easily find out who is talking. And hunt them down if you like…

Click the green checkmark to move. (Unavailable in preview.)

The radar screen shows all the different colors around your team. You can click the hunter icons to hide colors as well.

Top

Chat

FAIR WARNING 1: The chat window is uncensored. Some people may curse or express objectional ideas. Be prepared to ignore some people.

The chat window lets players communicate directly with all other players in the game.

FAIR WARNING 2: Chat is stored on the blockchain forever. If you do not wish to say something that you want stored forever, don’t type it into the chat. Once it is said, it is said FOREVER.

You can filter chat by color, view all chats, and view the console here.

HOT TIPS FOR PLAYING! (coming soon…)

Starting Huntercoin: Mithril Edition the First Time

The program folder has 3 items in it.

Double-click “setup.exe” and wait for the client to load.

Once the client loads, you must enter a few settings in the settings screen.

Press the ESC key to display the settings.

Now, enter the proper settings as detailed below.

1) Uncheck “Use Testnet”.

2) Enter the path to the huntercoind.exe file. This is what you downloaded from the official Huntercoin web site (http://huntercoin.org/). It should look something like this:

C:\Users\YOUR WINDOWS LOGIN\Downloads\Huntercoin\huntercoind.exe

It won’t look exactly like that, but will be similar.

3) Check “Restart Huntercoind process when game starts”.

4) Check “Kill Huntercoind process at the end of the game”.

5) Enter your RPC Address as “http://127.0.0.1:8399/”. “127.0.0.1” is the local loopback, which means your computer, and 8399 is the port that Huntercoin uses.

6) Choose a username and password with no spaces. It doesn’t matter what they are. You can let people know these as they aren’t real secrets (unless you’re running some special services, which you won’t be if you’re playing Huntercoin).

STEPS 7 TO 11 ARE OPTIONAL FOR ADVANCED USERS. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING, IGNORE THESE.

7) Run the Huntercoin QT client that is in the same folder from step #2 above. After it loads, close it. This will create the Huntercoin appdata folder.

8) Open Windows Explorer and enter “%appdata%\huntercoin” into the address bar. This will browse to the folder that you just created in step #7 above.

9) Make a copy of “db.log” then rename it to “huntercoin.conf”. You MUST make certain that the file extension is .conf and not .log. You may need to change the folder options to show file extensions.

10) Open “huntercoin.conf” in a text editor, e.g. Notepad, Editplus, Notepad++, etc. DO NOT USE MS WORD OR WORDPAD!

11) Enter the following into the text editor:

addnode=192.241.222.65
addnode=192.81.209.210
addnode=178.32.31.41

rpcuser=SOMEUSER
rpcpassword=SOMEPASSWORD
rpcport=8399
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1

12) Click the “Test DAEMON Settings” button. You should receive this message if you entered the path properly:

13) If you want to play in full screen mode, click the Graphics tab, check “Fullscreen Mode”, then choose the appropriate resolution for your monitor and click “Test”.

DONE! Your settings are all finished. Click “Apply” or “OK”, and confirm saving the settings.

Now, restart the program!

Mithril Man’s Huntercoin Client Preview

If you haven’t heard of Huntercoin, and you like games or crypto currency, then you need to find out about it NOW. You can find the official Huntercoin site here:

http://huntercoin.org/

And the official Huntercoin thread at the Bitcoin Talk forums here:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=435170

MithrilMan in the BTF is creating a new client for Huntercoin. It’s not ready quite yet, but I had the chance to test it along with 2 other people. The game client is coming along really well, and is extremely smooth.

We’re running on testnet, so the screenshots don’t show the full main game, but they do show some cool features that you’ll love when its released.

This is the full client running in maximized mode instead of full screen (click to open the full resolution):

Mithral Man Huntercoin Client

There you can see how clicking on a hunter shows the entire team of hunters in the “Target” window. You can click to center on a hunter, or even show the direction that the hunter is traveling in.

The Cell Info window shows a specific hunter, and also the coordinates in the title bar:

Cell-info

It’s likely that there is more functionality yet to be implemented there, e.g. number of coins carried, etc., but so far, it’s coming along very well.

This video by Snailbrain (the Huntercoin creator) shows Mithril Man’s client. In it you can see paths that players are taking.

The chat window is significantly improved. Here’s a shot that shows how you can chat in multiple colours:

MM HUC chat

When was the last time you chatted with Bitcoin?

By choosing a tab, you can filter chats to show only 1 colour:

Show-yellow

In the top left of the screen is a green “radar” screen that plots players on the screen. I’ve highlighted 2 portions to help you see how it works (click to open a larger version):

Huntercoin RADAR

In there, where you click on the screen moves the radar around with the click-point being the center of the radar. You could use this at the edge of your screen to give you a quick peek at what’s off to the north/south/east/west without having to scroll. A very quick & useful tool.

The floating map lets you monitor another area of the screen, or immediately find the crown. It also has a checkbox that lets you follow the crown as it moves around.

Floating map

That will certainly make getting the crown a much harder fight. If you’ve been in a fight for the crown, they last HOURS and leave countless destructed and killed hunters all over the map. It’s a non-stop bloodbath, and extremely exhilarating! For example, if 1 HUC is about $1, then owning the crown is worth almost $12,000 a month! (1 block per minute with 0.25 HUC per block.)

The Crown of Fortune is very much worth protecting and fighting for. And Mithril Man’s new floating map and direction finding is going to make future crown battles truly even bloodier!

So, the future of Huntercoin is looking very bright. More development. More tools. More of everything!

Huntercoin-logoMy original title for this post was “Stop Begging for Huntercoins You Lazy Piece of Shit!” However, I figured that was a bit too direct. But either way, you can still get Huntercoins (HUC) for free if you follow a few simple steps below. Some will require that you do a bit of work or reading. If you want Huntercoins, and don’t want to do that, well, you’re a lazy piece of shit. Stop reading and go back to your pathetic life of grovelling at the feet of others. Those of you that have a bit of self-respect, read on!

  1. Mine Dogecoins (or some other crypto currency)
  2. Sell coins for BTC
  3. Buy HUC
  4. Play Huntercoin and make truckloads more coins!

It’s that simple. Not very hard. Yet there are countless people out there begging like pathetic worms for HUC.

For more information on mining… just search for it. It’s not that hard.

Now, there are giveaways in the Namecoin forums here:

http://forum.namecoin.info/viewforum.php?f=21

And you can get some free HUC there for as long as the giveaways last.

But for the love of Pete, don’t just spam everywhere asking for HUC. Stick to the begging and giveaway threads. I’ve given out hundreds of dollars of coins already. And I still have people begging for more. Give me a break! Give everyone a break!

Get some HUC. Kick ass in the games. But please, don’t grovel everywhere.

Cheers,

Ryan
