  • Moro-san UPDATE: https://www.hacker.or.jp/coinhive_innocent/ According to the "Japan Hacker's Association", an NPO assisting in Moro's case, the donation request for legal fees is now closed. According to their website, 904 donors contributed 10,185,671 yen, including crypto and other funds. As a contributor to his legal defense, I'm happy to see this outpouring from the community, Japanese or otherwise. If anybody out there pitched in to help this man, thank you. I hope the second judge has as much good sense as the first one. Good luck, Moro-san.

  • Dear BitBacker Community, In June of 2018, a Japanese freelance designer who goes by the name "Moro-san" was arrested by the Kanagawa Prefectural Police for incorporating CoinHive into his website. The charge was "disseminating a virus", which is illegal under Japanese law. The story is detailed here: https://news.bitcoin.com/coinhive-users-investigated-japanese-police/ Moro-san had long discontinued his use of CoinHive by the time he was arrested, and in truth made next to no profits from the operation (as detailed in the article above). His case was brought to trial, and thankfully the judge acquitted him, ruling that CoinHive could not be considered a virus under the law, and that the lack of any significant harm made prosecution nonsensical. In spite of that, Japanese public prosecutors have decided to appeal this decision, forcing Moro-san to go through more onerous, and expensive, legal procedure while the threat of a criminal record looms over him. Regardless of CoinHive's reputation among crypto enthusiasts, this prosecution is excessive and unfair. The Japanese National Police Association has long been hostile to privacy coins, and the libertarian principles underpinning cryptocurrency. This prosecution is clearly an attack on the crypto space in Japan that dares to step out of the narrow regulatory box created by the Japanese government. In cooperation with the "Japan Hacker Association", Moro-san is crowdsourcing funds for his legal defense. I urge everybody in the libertarian crypto space to help contribute. A threat to one of us is a threat to all, and Moro-san deserves our support. Currently the legal fund only accepts BTC and Monacoin. We plan to contribute, and we hope you will too. Thank you, Legal Fund Addresses - BitCoin: 19Aq95ZxMahPtpA3hLTFPj2EbjYruMFmZY  MonaCoin: MLmZz6ZJp26dDYrWNhEoo9fHusZ3hyqUio

  • Oh shit. PewDiePie is moving exclusively to DLive as a streaming platform. Something tells me this could get real interesting. Might be wise for Bitbacker to work towards supporting DLive sooner rather than later.

  • Sweet jesus...the prosecution in the Coinhive arrest case is actually appealing against the judge's ruling. Looks like the police aren't happy about this one getting away. https://www.bengo4.com/c_23/n_9491/

  • New video up ・PeerTube: https://peertube.anon-kenkai.com/videos/watch/c6f9ef74-a832-4fd9-ae39-e8be4a587a7a ・Bitchute: https://www.bitchute.com/video/RCXOutxuS7SR/ The "No One Cares" Show, Ep. 25: The News in Review Japanese court rules Monero browser mining is NOT a crime, Carlos Ghosn gets re-arrested ahead of his big press conference, and Japan's plans for "summer time" get cut off at the knee by none other than the EU's Jean-Claude Juncker himself.

  • https://youtube.com/watch?v=HXuAjDi-BWY Introducing the "アノニマスの見解" PeerTube instance! What is PeerTube? Why did you set up an instance? The answers to these questions and more are in the video! (...which will direct you to a link in the description that will direct you to the actual video...)

  • The PeerTube platform is now fully loaded with all content, and will serve as a tertiary backup for the YouTube channel, behind BitChute. Expect a full and proper announcement in the near future.

  • Now, I don't want anyone to panic, but I think we have an operational PeerTube instance....

  • Getting everything lined up for our upcoming PeerTube instance. Still deciding on a punchy domain name, but it's definitely going to be on FreeBSD.

  • https://www.bitchute.com/video/K2sYsrML2NqZ/ New video up on Bitchute - "No One Cares, Ep.24: The Asia-Pacific Censorship Roundup" In which we take the opportunity presented to us by the sudden global tsunami of State censorship to examine the lesser-known injustices committed against the internet by government actors in various Asian countries...namely China, Thailand, South Korea, and Japan.

  • https://www.bitchute.com/video/Hm46vYPWRrX5/ Bitchute version of the OnionShare release vid has gone up. Just a mirror of the YouTube version.

  • Hey @bitbacker-i sent another bug report to your Twitter DMs, but I can share here too if that helps.

  • Anonymous Japan: Our Response to Expansion of Download Law Targets, "Onion Share" https://youtube.com/watch?v=uzVa2MV2txs In early 2019, the Agency for Cultural Affairs proposed expanding the scope of the Copyright Act, which only covers music and video, to include comics, photographs, and all copyrighted written material as well. The Japanese government has made promises that these laws will only be used for serious and repeated copyright offenses. But the Japanese government has made many promises in the past. Each promise was abandoned as soon as it became inconvenient. This time will be no different. Fortunately, these proposals did not succeed. But only this time. They will be back, and it is necessary to prepare countermeasures against rising censorship of the internet. To that end, we have another software release to announce: Onion Share Download Onion Share https://onionshare.org/#downloads

  • New video coming up soon. We'll be responding directly to the (thankfully failed) Japanese government attempt to make screenshots and the fucking Copy-Paste function into criminal copyright infringement.

  • https://beincrypto.com/japanese-banks-launch-digital-currency-without-a-blockchain/ I remember hearing rumors about the upcoming bank-backed "J Coin" a while ago, and I was very curious too see how corporate Japan (legendarily slow, inflexible, and risk averse) would handle a homegrown crypto project. Turns out the answer is, they won't. "J Cash" is just another electronic payment system..to be added to the top of the pile next to PayPay, WeChat, AliPay, LinePay, ApplePay, and all the others. I can't say I'm surprised, but I'm almost a little disappointed.

  • We just ran into our first brush with the Community Guideline Strike system on YouTube. Apparently somebody was offended by something we posted 8 years ago, outlining Scientology's OT3 (also known as the Xenu story). Fortunately, our appeal of the Guideline Strike was successful, and the video is back up. To celebrate, we christened it with a new thumbnail photo. (apologies in advance for the shit quality...our video editing prowess wasn't much to speak of back then) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdw8WqXtcvg

  • https://cryptodaily.co.uk/2019/02/amazon-rival-rakuten-set-to-integrate-btc-march Oh snap, wasn't expecting this. Rakuten may be integrating BTC payment into their online shopping system. Not a big player globally, but inside Japan that's a fairly big player.

  • https://youtube.com/watch?v=vvH6WMLFmwE Anonymous no Kenkai Ep.14: The UN High Commissioner for Loli Rights In the last ANONYMOUS NO KENKAI video, we talked about how the Censors try to impose their views on others by force.

  • The thought occurred that I had not yet gotten around to pledging to @bitbacker - an error cheerfully corrected! Very happy to see this platform thriving, with many more users than just a few short months ago. Congrats.

  • Sorry for the prolonged absence. Been busy with a few things. Namely related to this: https://www.oneangrygamer.net/2019/02/u-n-proposes-initiative-to-ban-loli-shota-and-underage-drawings-and-cartoons/77229/ "U.N. Proposes Initiative To Ban Loli, Shota, And Underage ‘Drawings And Cartoons’" Our own response, and an initiative to help Japanese artists and fans, will be coming soon.

  • https://www.bitchute.com/video/OdGIoZnvXgKI/ The "No One Cares" Show, Ep.23: Why Should I Trust Yuri Bezmenov? In which Bezmenov's theory of demoralization is critically examined, particularly regarding its complete irreversibility, and the worrying logical conclusion this worldview leads to.

  • The next episode of our Bitchute exclusive topic discussion series is now live: https://www.bitchute.com/video/aZS3pM2o6d9L/ The "No One Cares" Show, Ep.22: Carlos, Gone In which we examine the details surrounding the arrest of one Carlos Ghosn, prolific businessman and former chairman of Nissan, including some lesser known facts that paint an entirely different picture of his sudden and aggressive prosecution.

  • No One Cares Episode 22 is rendering now. Went a little longer than I usually like to go (almost 30 minutes!) but there's a lot of meat on the bones of this story, so it needed the time. Should be up within the day, if all goes well.

  • Thanks to @bitchute , our channel there now accepts tips via both BitBacker and CoinPayments. Happily, this means Monero is an option now. Also Tronix, because why not.

  • Hot damn, Bitchute has actually incorporated BitBacker AND CoinPayments into site Monetization. This changes a few things.

  • Now that things have settled down, I intend to do a deep dive on a topic I always wanted to cover: the situation with Carlos Ghosn and his indefinite detention in Tokyo. I've always wanted to excuse to go into the Japanese "justice" system in some detail, and this is a good a chance as any.

  • The "No One Cares" Show, Ep. 21: The State of t̶h̶e̶ ̶U̶n̶i̶o̶n̶ Bitchute https://www.bitchute.com/video/wZ135EsMPgLc/ In which we discuss the state of Bitchute in light of SubscribeStar's return, evaluate progress towards promised features, and examine some places it could stand to improve.

  • A video on our investigation into Bitchute's "Chutoken" system is almost complete, and will ideally be up tomorrow or the day after.

  • Got an answer from #smartcash about the mic permissions: https://mobile.twitter.com/scashofficial/status/1090547011022131200 "It's not being used right now. We may add voice ID as an alternative login method in the future. We're using the camera to scan QR codes" This is not unreasonable, though I think throwing that permission in before strictly needing it isn't the wisest move. A disclaimer about the permission in the app desc might be worthwhile. That said, the source code for the SmartCash wallet does appear to be fully open source: https://github.com/SmartCash/electrum-smart ..so that goes a long way to alleviating concerns. That said, if I ever run this wallet, I think I'll be permablocking mic access as a precaution.

  • Hey everyone. We've gone ahead and added a BCH address to this account (finally), but I'm not 100% I've set it up right...using Electron Wallet for the first time. If you'd like, feel free to help test it out by sending BCH :^)

  • ...so, uh..does anybody know why the official SmartCash wallet for Android requires microphone access permission? That seems a little weird.

  • Thanks to the helpful people of r/Monero, I think I've got a solid grounding of how to test Bitchute's "chutoken" network and see how widely deployed it is. Expect updates this week, if all goes well, with a full report once its all wrapped up.

  • @jonathan_silverblood I have a situation where somebody has forked the Monero software into their own version, to create their own blockchain for something. I want to check to see if there are any nodes of this Monero fork deployed and running. In order to do this, would I need to install and run the software myself? Do you know where and what I would need to look for to see if the node is communicating with any other instances of the same software? I have a link to a repo if that would help.

  • I've added some new tiers to celebrate the new system. I look forward to interacting with you all. Thank you for reading my blog post

  • To the BitBacker Community: I need to talk to somebody with experience in the technical implementation side of blockchain software. I have a few questions for an investigation of sorts, and would appreciate outside help and input if anybody's willing. Thanks.

  • https://github.com/BitChute/chutoken So apparently Bitchute was doing a fork of Monero for their own internal token system. Surprisingly, this is the first I've ever heard of it...and I'm an avid Bitchuter, but I only found this out after doing some incidental research into their funding situation.

  • https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/agilud/does_monero_have_any_plans_to_make_an_ethical_/ Whoa, whoa...Zcash devs were actively mulling "ethical backdoors" into their own blockchain? Fuck that, I'm never touching them if that's the case.

  • I'm sure this is low on the list of priorities, but if possible it might be a good idea for @bitbacker to use the Enterprise Onion Toolkit to make a Hidden Service version of BitBacker at some point: https://github.com/alecmuffett/eotk

  • https://www.bitchute.com/video/5qOB176Nzwvr/ The "No One Cares" Show, Ep. 20: JASRAC is Literal Cancer (Chemo as yet Unscheduled) In which we outline exactly how JASRAC (the Japanese Society for the Rights of Authors and Composers) is destroying music culture, again, before suggesting an easy solution that will probably never be considered or used. Support our work with crypto-mining: https://www.anonymous-japan.org/support Or PowerChat here. Or just don't, whatever's good :^)

  • https://www.bitchute.com/video/K1NZJ71rpHKx/ The "No One Cares" Show, Ep. 19: Japan's "Cashless Chaos" In which some followup is given to close the issue of Epic Games and Monero, before moving on to discuss the plethora of cashless payment systems in Japan, their obvious pitfalls, and the risks of asking the government to fix what isn't broken.

  • Hey @bitbacker I've found a bug in notifications I think. My wall posts are being reported as Powerchats, and clicking on the link to them from notification ends in a Server Error (500).

  • Got a reply from Spagni on the Epic/Globee/Monero situation. https://twitter.com/fluffypony/status/1082880490791731201

  • https://www.bitchute.com/video/iSvULcBl2Wps/ The "No One Cares" Show, Ep. 18.5: The Globee Shuffle, or the Mystery of the Missing Payment Option In which Epic Games reveals that it somehow enabled crypto payments by accident, after which nobody can keep their stories straight and the noise of some is eclipsed by the silence of others. Support our work with crypto-mining: https://www.anonymous-japan.org/support Or pledge directly here in BitBacker.

  • Further followup on the Fortnite/Monero situation...Riccardo Spagni is being very evasive, Globee is maintaining radio silence, and a lot of stories aren't adding up. I don't think this is necessarily sinister, I just think somebody screwed up and now nobody wants to lose face. This warrants some followup.

  • Okay, so this is weird... https://cointelegraph.com/news/epic-games-fortnite-store-starting-to-accept-monero-was-accidental-ceo-confirms https://mobile.twitter.com/TimSweeneyEpic/status/1081708879472410625 That's a very unusual accident, but I guess no spending XMR for that Durrburger Onesie after all...

  • I'm curious, @bitbacker ...are there any plans for a mobile app or an API in the future?

  • https://www.bitchute.com/video/EDHrtcziFFby/ The "No One Cares" Show, Ep. 18: Dab on that Blockchain Surveillance In which Epic Games' exclusive embrace of Monero (courtesy or presumed lobbying by Project Coral Reef) is put under the microscope, alongside the US Department of Homeland Security, who seek to put private blockchains under a microscope of their own.

  • Looking more into the Fortnite/Monero thing. There's actually some meat on this story...

  • https://youtube.com/watch?v=xfXr_hS3Q9M Happy New Year, and my reflections on the use of #crypto by doujin circles at this Winter Comiket.

  • https://www.ccn.com/fortnite-store-accepts-crypto-but-only-monero/ Jesus christ...The Fortnite store is taking crypto now. But only Monero. wtf I love Fortnite now.

  • ...and Tokyo Comic Market 95 has come to a close. Very thankful to everyone who came. We offered BTC and XMR as payment options, but sadly no takers, lol Ah well. Maybe next time ^^

  • Two days into Tokyo Comic Market, it's good to see more doujin circles accepting #crypto and taking advantage of technology for payments. That said, there are a lot of stumbling blocks that prevent it from being too slow and unwieldy. A crowded venue like Big Sight will always have mobile network congestion, which interferes with speedy confirmation. But worse, a lack of prep can add needless obstacles to the transaction. I was given a QR for a wallet and an amount in BTC. My wallet is auto set to mBTC to avoid ridiculous decimals. I mistakenly entered the BTC number given unthinkingly, which the wallet interpreted as an unacceptably low volume of mBTC. This could have been avoided with a payment request QR, that most wallets offer. Every little difficulty, or any delay of even a handful of seconds discourages crypto use for smoother, faster centralized alternatives. Or good old cash, of course. A little forward thinking and preparation is a must. Vendors beware!

  • https://www.bitchute.com/video/rQt_ftj_x7w/ Bitchute version finally got scraped. "Anonymous no Kenkai" Ep. 13, The Lie of "Global Standards"

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQt_ftj_x7w Anonymous no Kenkai Ep.13: The Lie of "Global Standards" Starting in mid-October 2018, a number of Japanese adult game makers publishing through Sony on the Playstation 4 announced that some of their content would either be censorsed, or outright removed. Some might blame the 2020 Olympics. But the reality is, Sony and Japan may have found themselves caught up in a culture war they don't fully understand.

  • Man, if I thought "shitposter" was hard, "deplatforming" is really busting my balls to translate.

  • Translation Notes: trying to find a suitable Japanese term to transliterate "shitposter" is really hard.

  • Oh shit, XMR.TO interoperability with Bitbacker confirmed. This opens up a number of possibilities.

  • Working on our next video now. It's going to be addressing the censorship wave as it's affecting Sony, the PS4, and the Japanese adult visual novel industry.

  • So does an account need a livestream link set up for PowerChats to work here?

  • https://www.bitchute.com/video/s4s8fkPv0o8/ "Anonymous no Kenkai", Ep.12: The Public Blockchain Trap Virtual currencies allow the free exchange of value between individuals.

As the government tightens its control over the cryptocurrency market in Japan, how can individual users protect their financial privacy? #crypto

  • https://www.bitchute.com/video/sJno7TnJktHz/ The "No One Cares" Show, Ep.11: I Told You So In which the National Police Agency grants themselves omniscient power over the blockchain, adding yet one more brick to the wall being built around the Japanese cryptocurrency space. #crypto

  • I figured I'd go back through my old videos and post all the #crypto related ones here. But I'll be less single-issue going forward.

  • https://bitbacker.io/press Oh snap, I'm press now. Somebody get my Pulitzer ready.

  • I've decided to start posting links to my Bitchute videos here on BitBacker, and to start using BitBacker itself as a kind of tip jar. I was already doing that with the browser mining and #crypto addresses before, but I'll add this as well just out of convenience, and a desire to promote the platform.

  • Testing out the platform functionality here, but I'm hopeful it'll work well. I'm curious though, does pledging require storing crypto on a bitbacker wallet? Are monthly payments automated? #welcome

  • Well, I hope this takes off...
