gAtO tHiNk- the bad evil hackers are the least of your worries, the real bad guys are the corporate geeks that want every click, every nuance of your digital life and they tell you it’s to give you a better web experience. WoW I didn’t know that selling all my information as I go from site to site is a good thing for me. How about if I’m sick and search for my medical problems will my insurance company want that information to raise my payments. You betcha they do!!!
I’m doing some Tor work now so I’m away from the hump and grind but I been changing my search engines because like google they know what I look for and they give me the same crap and then I switch to yahoo and soon the have me profiled then Bing, whoa!!! what a mistake but I expected very little from them anyway. They were robbing us blind back before Netscape days.
Think about those high tech security geeks they get paid big bucks to guard the hen house and you hear about a new hack every other day why because if you understand the “book” the same one every security geek get’s all those certification all teach the same old done thing and that’s their job to take the masses and control them but the ones that think for themselves are the true pioneers, the ones that dance to a different drum. Look I don’t have any certifications anymore and I know more today about the Tor network than most people around. That’s what interest me and that’s what I like.
The currency of information economy is going swell and the big corporate boys are all for selling everything you do so use Tor and be safe and have a little privacy. Be different and use the tools that work for you and keep your digital breadcrumbs to yourself. I know your not doing anything wrong and you don’t have to prove it to anybody. People say if I use Tor then people will think that I’m a bad guy. Oh Me, Oh My do you really care about other’s control of you. It’s a propaganda war just to keep you afraid of Tor because with it they cannot sell your data. Don’t sell your click for free make them earn them -gATO OuT
gAtO FoUnD a – Cyber Crooks – a user with the nick ‘torstatusnet’ dropped by today posting false claims that the MtGox is now on the .onion network.
Finally MtGox network Tor! Dear friends MtGox site has finally an anonymous site on Tor network Now it is possible to make anonymous transactions in the world’s largest portfolio of bitcoins. I thought they would never join the Tor network, but announced on her website that the new site is in http://6xjgdqlmvesefnkp.onion/. It seems that the MtGox guarantee confidentiality, and I think that will become the major tool for exchanging bitcoins … Pass by there and check …
So here’s the thing (It’s clearly a scam), took 2 minutes to figure it out.
First of all there’s NO official info from MtGox that they have a onion url.
Second is the error message that shows when you enter any random data into the login.
It routes you to this error:
The system has an error. Sorry for the inconvenience, we will try to fix it as soon as possible. Thank you.
If you look closely at the onion url it routes a clearnet domain.
Happy Birthday Bitcoin – Available NOW-eBook –http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AYA4SVS
On this day Bitcoin turns 4 years old. As any 4 year old will tell you this has been a wild ride. From a little know digital currency to today’s acceptance into the legal banks and marketplace this little currency that could has shocked world leaders, stunned banking officials all over the world trading and is today in the $13.5-USD range.
Pierluigi and I (gAtO) first came across this when we were covering Wikileak problems and writing our first book – The Deep Dark Web – the cyber underweb we’re finding this new currency and using it because it was working and had no government ties. Bitcoin has been vilified by most governments but the US -UK and it’s ties to currency transaction systems like Visa, Mastercard, PayPal and others (IMF and SEPA, SWIFT to name a few) became the shot heard around the cyber world.
On the one hand you have Anonymous and other hacktivist using it to show how it cannot be controlled and the other side is the European Central Bank (ECB) published a report in Nov-2012 about finding a solution to Bitcoins place in (FRB) Fractional Reserve Banking, the cornerstone piece of all banks to create money out of thin air.
Thomas Jefferson said: “I sincerely believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restores to the people to whom it properly belongs”
Digital virtual communities have exploded in recent years – this phenomenon is enabled by social media and the changing world we live in. In some cases some communities have created their own currency for exchange of goods and services but it has expanded to outside their own circles to provide a new medium of exchange, creating new digital virtual currencies that are changing the world. Bitcoin-Central is now the first Bitcoin exchange to become a bank with guarantee funds insured up to EU$100,000.
When the ECB published that report it was the white flag of surrender but also assurance that the bankers can still control some of it’s power. Let’s face it FRB is the biggest scam by bankers – as they explain this system it is done to expand the economy by freeing up capital that can be loaned out to other parties. WoW that sound so nice of them to do this favor for us in reality it set’s up the cornerstone or their financial profits from nothing.
FRB is were someone deposits 100 dollars in a bank they are required by FRB laws to keep 10% in the vault but now they can loan out 90% of that deposit because they got the governments (us the tax payers) to insure that $100 deposit in case they make bad loans or to make sure they get their bonus checks. So if you came back to the bank to get your money out and they squandered your money on bad loans or just shoddy business practice -oh well no problems – the government will pay you back with our own tax dollars. In other words they take my tax dollars and pay me back with it and then they increase my taxes so that the bankers can keep doing the same thing over and over again. No responsibility and to think that bankers are look up to by business and in persons to be highly respected and good citizens- right!
This is the biggest scam in history they have no responsibility, no reason to be wise and make good investments because they have politicians in their pockets. You know those people that we voted for that are supposed to represent us the people, no they represent these scum’s the bankers. The funny thing that they have no control of Bitcoins like fiat currency. They cannot just print more money up; Bitcoins are created in a way that revolves around MATH – Yeah most people hate math but this time it works so good that these bankers have tried everything in their power to control Bitcoin and other digital currencies and they cannot; they failed.
I will be the one to first tell you that Bitcoins as they are today will NOT be the answer only 21 million total Bitcoins will ever be created and the world needs a bigger unit to scale this for a worldwide monetary solution. Other digital currencies will still be created because of the Bitcoin experiment; and as the world becomes more digitalized we will see that government or corporate control currency solutions will not be trusted by the world community.
Look at Canada’s attempt at Digital currency MintChip at first it was hailed as a winner the first digital currency backed by a world leader like Canada. But somehow after much fanfare and lots of money spent they awarded the team with a the best solution and hid it from everyone – it went to the back room in the filing cabinet never to be heard again. In the 2 or so years that the Canadian took to develop this system it was convinced (by the global bankers) that this would not work. Canafa caved in to the pressure and MintChip is dead – DOA
Maybe the bankers told them to shelf it, it would setup the premise that other governments could do the same and if they can bypass the current system like SEPA or SWIFT or IMF or the World Bank you see they control the financial system and if they don’t like you or you pissed them off they will not allow your country to function in it. Control of the financial network is how the “evil global bankers” control the toy box.
We hope that our new book will open up doors and minds to the possibilities of digital virtual currency and Bitcoin worldwide.
This book explores the new digital currencies and how they are changing the world. When we were researching -The Deep Dark Web book we saw that some of the criminal elements were using this new currency Bitcoin but we also saw that legit business were also adapting to this new currency. We hope to help you learn what is happening with this new currency we cover -Who uses this currency -What are the financial aspects – Governments, Business, Merchants and Criminals. In all we hope to guide you with some of the questions you have.
This book will be an invaluable resource for cyber security professionals, financial policy-makers, business experts, lawyers, merchants, scholars, and researchers, this book provides a comprehensive research from a International cyber security perspective, technical, and financial implications of the new digital virtual currencies.

gAtO tHiNk – the monetary system is f%^k and so are we. My good friend Pierluigi and I have been busy putting together a new book – Digital Virtual Currency and Bitcoins – coming out in a week or so and the picture of the state of all currency is really in bad shape. Virtual currency is not new it is more a transactional system than currency but unlike PayPa, Visa, Mastercard with Bitcoins you can become a miner and create your own coins. check it out- https://blockchain.info/nodes-globe
I have include the table of content so you can see our approach to understanding what is happening and the war that global bankers ar wagging on this new system of currency. Why are they fighting it so hard because more people are beginning to see that a currency that is not control by global bankers and by the people and for the people is a better solution. Of course they are vilifying Bitcoins but as other systems have tried to get their teeth into this new worldwide currency Bitcoin come out on Top.
We hope that you will gain some knowledge from our newest venture into this mad, mad world of money- as they say “Follow the money” and we did but I can tell you the more I learned the madder I got that we have been tricked into thinking that the global bankers are the good guy. Facts is the world is in debt over 10 times over just on interest alone. The world owns more than we create – THE WORLD not a nation. and if look real hard 1% of the people control 40% of the wealth in this world. It is not a national issue it’s a world issue.
We are just cyber security professional but this has been an eye opener as we see the Monterey Market System as a sham to keep the people of the world in an ever ending debt -gAtO OuT

gAtO ThInK –Bitcoin is fast becoming the new payment system of the cyber revolution. Just like Paypal it became a new virtual currency where anyone can stash their money and receive and make payment (a digital Bank). Notice that I did not say currency, why because it just like Paypal and we don’t call then a currency?
PayPal enables any business or consumer with an email address to securely, conveniently, and cost-effectively send and receive payment online. Now Bitcoin is doing the same thing but with a digital encrypted wallet, low transaction fees and I can even keep it in my smart phone or device and used it anywhere I need it. What’s the difference is my question why have the status-quo labels Bitcoins evil, because the underground uses it, no because the bankers have not figured out how to make money on it. The Central Europe Bank in charge of the EURO is already looking into Bitcoin Fractional Reserve Banking rates.
So they say that Bitcoins and other digital virtual currencies are evil and used by criminals. Pay pal is being used by millions of cyber criminals everyday so is Visa, Mastercard and SEPA and SWIFT. So why don’t we go after them, maybe gAtO is dumb but we should go after the criminals not the currency. When they counterfeit paper money we trash the paper but we go after the criminals. Thats why I don’t understand the reason to vilified a process, a system that works, is secure encrypted and safe, it can’t be counterfeited, they can’t double spend it. The only conclusion after many months of research is simple the bankers cannot control it and lose power.
The 1% the plutocrats of the world control all the currency and transaction system. They have sold us the fairytale that they are protecting us the consumers, the people. The financial people all tell us that they do everything in their power to protect us when in fact all they care is about you in debt and there profits and bonus checks. Every corporation is under law to provide the maximum profit to their shareholders, they will announce massive layoffs of people and their stock prices rise every time they do that.
Where are the companies that care about the people they employ, where are the companies that really help the community where they are. We hear about offshoring and using slave labor at Apple manufacturing plants and then we hear about 6-8 hour lines to purchase those same product. I want to blame the hipsters for wanting their new toys from child labor camps then asking if the organics vegetables are pure without pesticides. But I type away on my Mac so I’m just as guilty as anyone else.
Digital currency / transaction systems- Bitcoins-BTC – Liberty Reserves – WebMoney-WMZ – LiqPay – QIWI – PayPal – OKPay – Payza/AlertPay – Yandex – UKash vouchers – SEPA bank transfer.
It’s the current or existing state of affairs that the financial people want to protect they hate this change because they cannot control it. They know the loop-holes and how to hide their fortunes and something like a Bitcoin is a shot heard around the world and you know what people are listening -gAtO OuT.
