Spam from Flock

Sunday, November 5th, 2017

Couple of weeks ago I received a mail from a site called Flock. It said that some guy invited me to join their social network. I would expect whoever invites me somewhere to do it in personal mail, without giving my e-mail address around. However, some people don’t think before acting – one should expect […]

Играта на доверие

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

Напоследък навсякъде – а в България май повече, отколкото на много други места – си струва човек да си зададе няколко прости въпроса. Кога хората си вярват? Кога не си вярват? Защо си вярват, или не си вярват? И как да направим така, че да могат да си вярват повече? Достатъчно лъганите почват да имат […]

Ethereum, Proof-of-Stake… and the consequences

Friday, July 28th, 2017

For those who aren’t cryptocurrency-savvy: Ethereum is a cryptocurrency project, based around the coin Ether. It has the support of many big banks, big hedge funds and some states (Russia, China etc). Among the cryptocurrencies, it is second only to Bitcoin – and might even overtake it with the time. (Especially if Bitcoin doesn’t finally […]

Bitcoin, UASF… и политиката

Monday, June 19th, 2017

Напоследък се заговори из Нета за UASF при Bitcoin. Надали обаче много хора са обърнали внимание на тия акроними. (Обикновено статиите по въпроса на свой ред са салата от други акроними, което също не улеснява разбирането им.) Какво, по дяволите, значи това? И важно ли е? Всъщност не е особено важно, освен за хора, които […]

It worked like a charm, but was missing some API calls, probably added by Poloniex later. So I ended up […]
