Hey guys! I'm fairly new to this sub and to having a home lab in general and I found this community to be so kind and helping, I wanted to give back what I've learned. I'm seeing a lot of questions asked around on improvements and on what to do with x extra hardware so I thought it would be nice to have a thread to regroup that.
I'll put here some stuff I gathered and the most common questions I've seen, feel free to contribute and i'll update the post along.

BAT Community Weekly Update: 02/16/2018 to 02/22/2018 — Bart Baker (10M subs) promotes Brave, interview with Brendan, big YouTube channels coming onboard, ETHDenver reflections, Ethereum wallet + hardware wallet support coming to Brave
Welcome to this week's community update! Now back from ETHDenver and seeing big adoption among major YouTube channels. Check it out! Thanks to MurphD for his invaluable contributions.
Bart Baker (10 million subscribers) asks his audience to download Brave; video then locked by YouTube This week, Bart Baker made a video calling out to his audience to support his channel with Brave’s referral program. However, shortly after uploading the video, it was removed by YouTube. Bart, understandably, was very upset with the situation and followed up on Twitter. You can follow the whole situation here:
We wholeheartedly support Bart in his efforts to remonetize his videos and to continue creating the content that makes millions of people laugh around the world. Let’s show him some support. (Also check the #SaveBartBeBrave hashtag on Twitter.)
“The Best Ethereum Wallet Ever”: Ethereum Wallet coming to Brave with hardware wallet support BAT/Brave’s hacking team at ETHDenver put their minds together and built an Ethereum wallet with hardware support for Brave. Features: 1-click wallet creation; 1-click shortcut to transfer funds from the ETH wallet into @Brave $BAT wallet; Hardware wallet support; Open source; Brave is up-to-date with the latest upstream Chromium release + sandboxing x-platforms; Automatically watches BAT token contract. See a video demo and full description here:https://devpost.com/software/best-ethereum-wallet-ever
ETHDenver The BAT/Brave team made an appearance at ETHDenver last week. It was a great experience and the team was excited to meet with countless fans and members of the community. Jennie, Luke and some cherished BAT community members (special shoutouts to miyayes, dragespir) answered hundreds of questions at the BAT/Brave booth. The BAT/Brave booth was especially popular; publishers, advertisers as well as users were lining up to speak with the team and learn more. We had many people come and express their love for Brave, as well as newcomers of all kinds! BAT/Brave also had two hacking teams at the event, (1) one of which created a fun retro game called Vapor (https://devpost.com/software/vapor) while (2) the other implemented an Ethereum wallet into Brave (see above). Luke participated in a panel on designing cryptoeconomic models, see the video here:link here Check out this link to see all the videos from ETHDenver:https://www.facebook.com/pg/ETHDenvevideos/
Zengineering Podcast: Episode 052 — with Jonathan Sampson, on Brave, Basic Attention Token and Browser Security
Jason Kint @jason_kint Thought experiment: if the two major ad blockers turned off Google’s whitelisting, what would happen? Google would have to kick out their extensions, walk into legal disputes, promote better solutions. This would likely help real publishers.
Jason Kint @jason_kint Google had many ways to play their "ad blocking problem” back in 2013. The noble one would've been to stand for consumer experience, privacy/security like Apple, Mozilla. But they opted to pay off the ad blockers, something even Facebook and all reputable publishers refuse to do. 1:53 PM - Feb 19, 2018
Brave Team Tweets:
Twitch coming in the next few weeks CryptoBlockchainBTCETH @CrytpoBlock Does your team have an estimate for when Twitch will be fully integrated with BAT and Brave? //REPLY [email protected] Weeks not months, my best thought. 9:19 PM - Feb 17, 2018
BAT / Brave is a piece to cake compared to how ads work now BrendanEich @BrendanEich Compared to ad tech (the “Lumascape”), it is a piece of cake. Note users need not study it to find Brave easy to use. pic.twitter.com/oEA6NcMOy6 6:12 PM - Feb 18, 2018
There’s always a middleman in the ad space: BrendanEich @BrendanEich At least one middle-person in any advertisepublisher relation: the user. Brave is the user agent, we take fixed fee always less than user share (70% revenue to user for private opt-in ads; 15% to user & 70 to pub if both consent to in-page ads), & no user data goes off device. 6:20 PM - Feb 18, 2018
What’s the point of BAT, and do users of the web have rights? BrendanEich @BrendanEich The point is to send revenue back to your favored sites & creators anonymously — Web is not going to fund itself. Replace the ad tech complex with private/anon analytics, self- or (bigger idea) auto-funded.
BrendanEich @BrendanEich Users have rights to block ads/trackers/scripts, but many see ecosystem problem of free-riding that way. Some can afford to pay & Brave enables anonymous contributuons, automated and/or pinned by user. Not all can afford, so private BAT ad option is coming, to pay for contribs. 6:53 PM - Feb 18, 2018

Miyayes @miyayesereum Re. Botting: 1. Fraud/bot detection running in native app (browser) will always be better than through in-page JS; 2. KYC for payouts; 3.

''' Thanks for your detailed response!
I linked to a quote from Satoshi where he talks about how much effort he went through when designing Bitcoin to make sure it could be upgraded via soft-forks, and in the link, it's almost uncanny how well his description of potential future upgrades he envisioned matches how SegWit was implemented (he even talks about how transaction version upgrades -- like SegWit -- can be ignored by older nodes that don't understand them yet, without problems).
[The link you provided]1 seems to be very specifically talking about how he wants "transaction types" to be flexible, and so he coded in the possibility for scripts to be created that could be evaluated by the network. Does segwit take advantage of those scripts? My understanding is that segwit puts the merkle root of the witness data in the coinbase transaction, and uses addresses that are treated by default as anyone-can-spend address until you reference the witness data broadcast separate from the block itself. Does any of that have to do with these transaction scripts he's referencing?
In that very same link, Satoshi talks about how Bitcoin's core design was "set in stone" from the very beginning, essentially doing his utmost to discourage what are now known as "hard forks" a la BCH. It is worth reading the full comment directly, in my opinion. In fact, over the years, Satoshi spent a lot of time and effort to discourage alternative forks of Bitcoin, and would say things like "I don't think a separate implementation will ever be a good idea" (because he considered network consensus so sacrosanct). BCH proponents consistently ignore inconvenient truths like this.
He's almost definitely not discouraging hard forks in that link... he's discouraging "a second, compatible implementation" (emphasis mine). By which it looks like he means a second client software that is compatible with the Bitcoin network, which is the opposite of a hard fork (which becomes incompatible by default and results in its own network). He's discouraging the attempt at a second compatible implementation because of the possibility that if "the second version screwed up, the user experience would reflect badly on both". That isn't the case with BCH, which made a clean break.
It's important to remember that Satoshi was the one who put the blocksize limit consensus rule in place in the first place, and in every instance where someone tried to raise it, he chimed in to say that he disagreed and that it should only be raised if the network truly needed it (and only with a long lead time and with extensive precautions taken to notify all users of the change). He was actually surprisingly fanatical about keeping blocks (and the blockchain in general) as small as possible, and if you go digging through his writings, you'll see tons of cases where he was adamantly opposing blockchain bloat and championing keeping Bitcoin as lightweight as we possibly can.
Yes, he put it there as an anti-spam/anti-DoS measure, right? Do you have a reference to what he considered the sort of situation that would constitute "if the network truly needed it"? The most relevant quote I can find is this one:
It can be phased in, like: if (blocknumber > 115000) maxblocksize = largerlimit It can start being in versions way ahead, so by the time it reaches that block number and goes into effect, the older versions that don’t have it are already obsolete.
Where he seems to treat it as a non-issue. What could possibly more constitute the the network "truly needing" a blocksize increase than the blocks being full?
In fact, when BitDNS was first proposed (which eventually evolved into Namecoin), people started discussing the possibility of merging this functionality directly into Bitcoin. They even proposed a generalized state machine (just like Ethereum) and many were of the opinion that this, too, should be added to Bitcoin. Satoshi weighed in to say that he was strongly opposed to doing this, because (in his words): "piling every proof of work quorum into a single dataset doesn't scale" and he went on to say that over time, Bitcoin users might (and apparently in his opinion should) become "increasingly tyrannical" about limiting the size of Bitcoin's chain so as to keep it lightweight and thus available (and affordable) for as many users as possible to join in and participate on the network.
Right, that makes sense, and at the end you mention that it would be being kept lightweight so that it would be "available (and affordable) for as many users as possible to join in and participate on the network". Doesn't that last sentence apply to transactions at least as much as, if not more than running nodes? As in, the majority of block space should to go to transactions so that the transaction capacity could be maximized? And isn't transaction capacity now being limited by the blocksize?
Satoshi thought that lite client (SPV) security would be a good way to allow users to get most of the benefits of Bitcoin without running a full node themselves, but he said that this would make sense when the network got to be "very large", and the exact figure he mentioned for such a scenario was 100,000 nodes (which we're sadly woefully short of at the moment).This is why some people (like Luke-Jr) argue that the current blocksize limit is already too high; the network node count is very much on the low side, right now, and it seems like Satoshi would probably agree with his take on the subject.
It seems like you're arguing here that because we don't have enough full nodes running, we should reduce transaction capacity. But isn't transaction capacity necessary for adoption? In which case we should go the opposite direction? I guess what it really comes down to is: Do you think that the number of nodes would not increase as adoption increases? Sure, a smaller percentage of users might run full nodes as blocks got bigger (if blocksize outpaced moore's law), but bigger blocks would imply higher adoption rate, and as long as adoption rate increase (percentage-wise) outpaced the decrease in those who run nodes, then we would end up with a net increase in nodes.
Beyond mere blocksizes, there are other aspects of BCH that would almost certainly invoke the wrath of Satoshi. For one, the cumulative chain difficulty is massively lower than that of the real Bitcoin network, and even though most of the proponents of BCH spent incredible amounts of effort arguing that "hashrate defines Bitcoin" (which, in my opinion, is total bunk), by this criteria BCH is as far as you can get from Bitcoin and it should have died long ago. Of course, they don't like to acknowledge this nowadays.
Sure, anyone who argues that hashrate defines Bitcoin (or probably more accurately, total accumulated proof of work defines Bitcoin), and then defines Bitcoin Cash as Bitcoin is contradicting themselves. But how would its lack of lacking the most accumulated proof of work invoke the wrath of Satoshi? It seems like he would just says "Bitcoin Cash is not Bitcoin until, if ever, it overtakes the current Bitcoin in accumulated proof of work."
Finally, mining of BCH is incredibly centralized; it seems that almost all (if not all) mining pools that mine it are subsidiaries of Bitmain.
Monday Monero Missives (weekly report) - October 6th, 2014
Original post is here Monero Monday Missives October 6th, 2014 Hello, and welcome to our thirteenth Monero Monday Missive! You'll notice a slight change in name - as of today we will be putting out a Missive every Monday. We want to start shifting the Missive from an announcement platform to a "week in review" platform. Traditionally the Missives have been a place for announcements, but all that is about to change. Major Updates 1. We are happy to announce the launch of the official Monero forum. You can find it at https://forum.monero.cc Instead of using something existing and off-the-shelf we wrote our own. There were several reasons for this, but the primary reason is that there is functionality we required that simply does not exist in existing forum software. Additionally, the nature of forums has hardly changed in well over 20 years (phpBB was released in 2000, SMF that is used on Bitcointalk was released in 2003). The forum software will be open-sourced and released soon. You will find the following features on the new forum of interest:
A clean, modern, responsive interface that provides a threaded view of posts.
Integration into the #bitcoin-otc Web of Trust. Currently this is one-way only, but the OTC WoT will soon start syncing back down.
In combination with that, GPG authentication that is also used as 2FA. When logging in you can choose how long to remain logged in for, so the level of protection you wish to exercise over your account is up to you.
The ability to rate users, as with the WoT. Ratings can be from -10 (untrusted) to 10 (trusted). We will also be adding tools to assist in visualising the trust relationships to forum members to assist with and encourage qualitative use of the WoT.
Posts and comments are weighted, and their position in the forum as well as their visibility is affected by this weighting. The weighting rules are still a work in progress and will mature over time, but they are primarily affected by four things: decrease as it decays over time, increases/decreases as users vote them insightful or irrelevant, and increases/decreases based on votes and child comments from users in your trust group (with influence up to a third level beyond your immediate trust group). The upshot of this is that the posts and comments that are most visible to you, and the order in which posts appear, is unique to you as a user, and depends entirely on your trust relationships. If a post is getting a lot of comments by people that you trust directly or indirectly (trust-of-trust and trust-of-trust-of-trust) you will personally see that post at the top more often than someone else who has no trust relationship with those commenters. We hope that this will, over time, lead to a more personal forum experience, one where troll and shill posts are effectively invisible, and you can focus on the posts and comments most important to you.
We are in the process of baking the funding system into the forum. You will notice that in the Development category there are 4 special sections: Ideas, Open Tasks, Funding Required, and Work in Progress. The way this will work is that anyone can suggest an idea in the Ideas section, whether it is a Monero feature, a peripheral task, or even something completely unrelated to direct development such as a gathering or conference. Once an idea reaches a level of maturity and community support (commensurate with the complexity of the idea, of course) it will be moved to Open Tasks by the Monero core team. At this juncture, a person, team, group, or even company can pitch to run with the task. Especially if they have not done anything Monero-related previously, they will need to detail why they are best suited to the task, and will need to give some indication as to what the cost will be, even if it is a bit of a thumb-suck. The core team will make a decision as to which candidate/group/team is going to run with the task, and the task will move to Funding Required. At this point the community will be able to fund the effort, with individuals being able to reach status levels and earn badges the more funding they provide. Once funding has exceeded 60% for that task work can begin and the task moves to Work in Progress, with a small stub left in Funding Required until the balance of the funding is met. The person or people working on the task can only request payment at most once a week, and funds will only be released if there is general agreement and observation by the community that the work is being done.
Posts and comments can contain MarkDown, including links, inline code blocks, multi-line code blocks, bold and italicised text, and inline images.
Private messaging, forum search, subscriptions, and so on will be added in the near future, but if you have a specific idea please create a post in the "Meta" section of the Monero Forum. 2. We are, therefore, going to be closing some of the threads here on Bitcointalk and linking them to the Monero Forum instead. It would be appreciated if all could follow suite, so that we have a single place for discussion and ongoing Monero-related efforts rather than having things spread out all over the place.
3. We have have been working hard in the background on the codebase, and the following additions are available in the source repository:
Major overhaul of the mnemonics system. This includes a brand new English wordlist designed from the ground up to minimise variant differences and to encourage adapting or memorising the list. It also adds an extra word as a checksum, so mnemonic seeds are now 25 words instead of 24. Finally, it adds multi-language support, with initial extra word lists in Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish. If you would like to assist in creating a word list please get hold of us (by posting on the new forum, for instance!)
The addition of MoneroPulse, a loosely distributed checkpoint alert system. MoneroPulse will allow us to add both block hash checkpoints and blob hash checkpoints (to defeat attacks like the Block 202612 attack). For ordinary nodes that are checked at least occasionally, the daemon will notify you in angry red letters when your local chain doesn't meet a checkpoint. If you run an unattended node (merchant systems, pools, etc.) you will want to turn on the "--enforce-dns-checkpointing" flag so that these checkpoints are enforced and not merely notified.
In the event of someone being a nuisance and trying to disrupt the Monero blockchain, we can now also distribute checkpoints in a simple checkpoints.json file that can be dropped into the same folder as your blockchain. The JSON format is quite simple, and we have provided an example in the Dev Diary below. The combination of file and DNS checkpointing will allow us to respond extremely quickly and secure the blockchain in the event of an attack. Of course, these measures are temporary, and once the Monero network is significantly larger and stronger they will be unnecessary.
There have been a number of minor tweaks and bug fixes.
Please note that static builds still need to be finalised before we can tag a release, but we hope to have new binaries up shortly.
4. The Monero Research Lab is glad to release a new Research Bulletin, MRL-0003, entitled "Monero is Not That Mysterious". In it, the Monero ring signatures are broken down and analysed both cryptographically and mathematically. In conjunction with that, we are happy to announce the release of MiniNero, a Python implementation of the Monero ring signatures. This is a very basic reimplementation that produces valid ring signatures that are nearly Monero compatible, although slight differences occur due to the hashing and packing algorithms. You can find the MiniNero source code on Github: https://github.com/monero-project/mininero 5. Monero has been added to the Cryptsy voting list, and within a few short days it has shot up to number 2 on the voting list. Thanks to all that have voted and continue to vote! Dev Diary Core: file checkpointing. This is in the form of a checkpoints.json file added to the config_folder. This file is checked every 10 minutes, and new checkpoints are always enforced (it is assumed that if an attacker has write access to your config_folder they can just modify your blockchain without needing to do anything else). At its simplest, the file follows this format:
Core: DNS checkpointing. This scans TXT records on the domains checkpoints.moneropulse.net/org/se/co every hour and, unless an enforce flag is set, notifies the user where checkpoints do not match. The records are all DNSSEC secured, although there is still some work to be done to provide cross-platform root trust anchors. Build: the build system is a little precarious at the moment. We are working hard on improving it so that builds are easier and less problematic.
