    nice tutorial, thanks !

    i try just to setup a read only node FANTOM to use as a RPC , but without cloudflare, on my dedicated server and i need ws and http
    Do i just need to delete --nat extip: ?

    ./opera --genesis ~/mainnet.g --nat extip: --nousb --http --http.vhosts="*" --http.corsdomain="*" --ws --ws.origins="*" --http.api="ftm,eth,debug,admin,web3,personal,net,txpool,sfc"


    Replace it with your IP of the node you are running it on

  2. How to Revoke Ethereum or Binance Smart Chain Smart Contract Spending Allowances

    Many people are unaware that when you interact with defi applications/dapps you usually end up allowing the smart contract to have unlimited allowance of spending those tokens on specific smart contract. This is a dangerous practice and is extremely unsafe.

    This guide will work for both Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain

    To protect yourself better, simply find the token address of the specific token you want to deny spending of, in this example I will use the token BAKE

    https://bscscan.com/token/0xE02dF9e3e622DeBdD69fb838bB799E3F168902c5 - BAKE BEP20 Token Contract

    You want to take that token address and go to the actual Contract Page of the Token:



    Once you are on this page under the "Write Contract" option, click the "Connect to Web3" to connect your Metamask wallet to Bscscan/Etherscan.

    You will then input the address of a smart contract you want to deny/revoke this token spending from, e.g. a LP contract or staking contract, etc.

    You set the amount to 0


    Simply hit "Write" and Metamask should popup asking to complete the transaction. Done.

    You have now disallowed/set the spending amount to 0 of that token to a specific smart contract. You can rest assured knowing some random smart contract you allowed last summer can't spend your fortune of aped tokens.

  3. Yes, for example Denarius (D) has decentralized domain names that can be hosted on IPFS, where no central authority or hosting company is in control. https://denarius.io/dns there are other blockchains with support for things like this, but Amazon just runs AWS which is a centralized company that does host a lot of the current internet infrastructure, as far as Amazon shutting down wallets or websites related to crypto, I would say that is slim, but also why blockchain technology is being used to circumvent centralization and censorship.

  4. sudo apt install wget curl git build-essential 
    wget https://golang.org/dl/go1.15.7.linux-amd64.tar.gz 
    tar -C /usr/local -xzf go1.15.7.linux-amd64.tar.gz 
    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin 
    go version 
    git clone https://github.com/carsenk/go-ipfs 
    cd go-ipfs 
    make build 
    cp /cmd/ipfs/ipfs /usr/bin/ipfs 
    ipfs init 
    sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/ipfs.service

    Goes inside ipfs.service ~

    Description=IPFS Daemon
    ExecStart=/usr/bin/ipfs daemon --enable-namesys-pubsub

    Then just reload and enable ipfs

    sudo systemctl daemon-reload
    sudo systemctl enable ipfs
    sudo systemctl start ipfs

    So you're saying, simply, that I CANNOT be forced to pay tax?

    Well, this, unfortunately is the news in India:


    Yup, you can do whatever you want. Just grab Tor (https://torproject.com) and a nice VPN, use exchanges that don't support KYC and no one can tell you what to do. 🙂

    .....since there is no BANK, to speak of, to store your crypto once you've mined it, and since it's not tied to your ID in any way - ie. if you have some Bitcoin on USB drive 1 and some more on USB drive 2, there's no way to tell that it's the same GUY that has them; then I fail to see how you can be Forced to pay taxes, should you choose to avoid them...?

    ....the government simply doesn't KNOW who has what, right...?

    The government claims to have chain analysis tech, which they can use to analyze transactions on the blockchain since it is a public ledger and then try to associate certain transactions with suspicious activity or monitoring ones going to say like a Dark Web Market. There is a term used often called "plausible deniability", they simply cannot prove anything, even with their chain analysis software. Simply put, no one can be forced to do anything. Typically though, tax wise, they track that upon exchanging, so if you use something like Coinbase etc. then you will surely want to file your taxes. If you are keeping crypto crypto you do not have to claim taxes on it. Usually only when you go crypto to fiat or fiat to crypto, though I would check your jurisdictions laws, as they vary heavily between different countries and areas.

  7. Denarius Announces Beta of Kronos Wallet and Chat


    “Blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum have paved the way of innovation for cryptocurrencies and new applications like Denarius (D): Kronos, to bridge the gap for a faster and cheaper way to transact and utilize cryptocurrency.”

    Kronos, a new application beta from the developers of Denarius (D), provides people a way to socialize and transact without a central authority. This new proof of concept takes decentralization, blockchain, and privacy to the next level. “Users” are able to freely join the Kronos Chat platform, as it is redundantly available due to it using peer-to-peer technology. Kronos has no downtime or possible banning of the platform. Examples of this in current history include, Amazon Web Services (AWS) taking down the Parler app’s platform hosting. Google Play Store and Apple App Store removing the Parler application. Signal being taken offline. Whatsapp invasion of privacy...The list goes on.

    Kronos is a secure cryptocurrency wallet but also chat reinvented. With the Kronos Chat you can chat and send cryptocurrency across the world in seconds. End-to-end encrypted messages and no storage of your chats, anywhere. Kronos Chat is powered by YOU by leveraging the latest peer-to-peer technologies. Censorship is everywhere and increasing daily. Kronos Wallet allows you to be truly free, with “self-moderation” YOU finally have the power to choose your own censorship while you socialize. Kronos stores only required data securely and locally, not on an unknown centralized server in the cloud. Kronos supports optional Two Factor Authentication (2FA) and One-time Password (OTP) Yubikey authentication and uses BIP39 technology for your cryptocurrency wallet with the most advanced and leading encryption technologies available today.

    Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency to solve the Byzantine Generals Problem, but transactions are slow. Ethereum created a smart contract platform, but transaction fees are expensive. Denarius stayed true to its roots by forking the original Bitcoin Satoshi code and modified the coin to become a faster and cheaper alternative to Bitcoin. Now Denarius with Kronos changes things. BTC, ETH, and D coins can be sent using the Kronos Wallet with more cryptocurrencies and tokens being added soon, possibly USDC, USDT, Namecoin (NMC), Devault (DVT), Primecoin (XPM), etc. Interplanetary File System (IPFS) integration and file uploading directly inside of the Kronos Chat also allows the user to upload files such as documents, images, and media directly inside of Kronos, ready to be shared via the plethora of IPFS public gateways available.

  8. New PoW Block Reward of 0.0001 D?

    The reasoning behind this poll is that small rewards 0.0001 D would not cause inflation in the network (~100 D per year via PoW mining) to where miners would not be dumping rewards, it would give a small incentive to mining Denarius, but at least there would be an incentive compared to the current 0 PoW Block Reward structure, it would grow Denarius (D) as a whole as all the hardware manufacturers, hobbyist miners, mining sites, tools, software, discussion, etc. would grow again.

    To elaborate on the outlining issue, would be that currently we have PoW and no, it will not be removed, it is a core part of Denarius in general with the Tribus algorithm and our blocks. Currently as it stands, PoW rewards 0 D as block rewards, thus essentially spamming FS wallets and mining pools/payouts with zero block reward payouts, some software has hard interoperability with this 0 block reward structure causing crashes, etc. Fixing this reward to 0.0001 D solves this issue and would help to grow our hybrid ecosystem with Denarius without causing massive changes to inflation.

    OK, so assume I have to pay somewhere, at a POS terminal, which accepts Bitcoin, and I possess only Ethereum - is it possible that I press my phone against the terminal, it goes "beep", and money auto-gets converted from my Eth to the other guy's Bitcoin, and my wallet gets deducted?? Is such a thing a reality?? I'm talking about all the cryptocurrencies there are, of course.....

    https://coinpayments.net you can setup auto conversion to BTC or whatever as the POS owner. There are also things like https://swirlpay.io which dont do auto conversion just direct payments to your wallet as the business owner.
