  • Re: Help Stop Forum Spam

    Lately I've been seeing a lot of spam in the forum, and we are doing our best to get rid of it. You can also help. If you see any spam, anything not related to Ethereum, or this forum, please flag it as spam. This would be the quickest way for us to keep the forum clean.

    Thanks everyone! :smile:
    What is the main type of spam? Just irrelevant posts? Or new projects being advertised?
    Yeah, irrelevant posts, suspicious links.
    Fake certs, dox, 'Tantric astrology' readings (but they finally gave up applying for accounts after some vector analyse allowed for easy identification of their applications)

  • Re: Help - Cant withdraw ether from contract

    @zechris, @slebo got his money out, I helped him.

    Then he refused to pay the full 3 eth bounty he offered.

  • Re: Do developers need to consider legal consequences for the Dapps they create?

    The gambling DAPP's so far have tended to focus on proven fair gambling. In that regard, they offer a better and safer alternative to normal internet gambling sites which have no transparency at all. But the most surprising thing about Ethereum and cryptoeconomics in general is that 'gambling' algorithms are so much a part of the security of the blockchain itself.

    The power of Ethereum is not that it can build boats that float or sink according to ethics, laws and regulators, but is a tide that floats all boats in spite of the moral or regulatory arguments. That is the essence of it as a disruptive technology.

    So far the regulators have simple sat and watched. The responses from different nations authorities have spanned the spectrum but most seem more open to Ethereum than Bitcoin though the latter would seem much less disruptive. On average, I think most of them have realised they going to have to simply get use to it being around. The smarter ones seem to be trying to work out how to befriend it and have even gone as far as saying the effects of "We're watching ICO's but probably won't do anything about them". Which is basically say "If ya's all get scammed, we don;t give a shit", "If you don't pay tax on your $100m ICO, no big deal"

    I think the regulators are trying not to look like they're staring into an abyss.

    That said, the serious ICO teams have all sought good legal advice and have tried to run as close as possible with the regulatory frameworks of their jurisdictions. Unfortunately, 'jurisdiction', doesn't mean much in a nation agnostic technology. So 'good legal advice' in this field is still emerging for the very fact that the regulatory environments have not been able to catch up. This is why you get things like EOS saying "US citizens can't participate in our ICO" and then advertise their ICO on Time Square digital billboards.

    However, outright scams are generally well covered under criminal law and there's been numerous successful prosecutions of perpetrators in the crypto-currency field. But you have to find them first.

    As for kids becoming addicted to Ethereum gambling DAPPs, you could simply write down the predictable daily loss ratio and stick it on the monitor for them.....then introduce them to speculative trading instead.
