The spell checker which could have hacked Coinomi

I came across this article from Coinomi about a statement responding to a Mr Warith Al Maawali who had made a video on how if you used the Desktop Wallet of Coinomi, your restoration of the Coinomi wallet could be jeopardize because of a SPELL CHECKER function which google had.

If you didn’t understand that video, this is what it was explained in the most simplistic manner.

Since restoring a COINOMI wallet requires you to type in a RECOVERY phrase, Google ‘s Spell Checker kicks in and records down all the words you use which is shown in the right hand side of the screen.

This is a large vulnerability which could be exploited by hackers even though Coinomi claims that all information received thru the spell checker does not go anywhere. However its still a vulnerability which is acknowledge by Coinomi.

Here is the full responds from Coinomi in regards to this Spell Checker vulnerability.

Because of this COINOMI started getting a whole series of allegations about lost money in wallets and etc. etc. and the drama of COINOMI and their reputation is on the line.

Here is a reddit article about someone loosing their entire life savings just after using COINOMI wallets

So be careful as to what you use to keep your precious crypto, as people will always find a way to try to get your $$$ and these vulnerability in softwares & systems are consistently put to the test.

Do take necessary precaution in safe guarding your data and for cryptos, do not place it all in 1 wallet, I do suggest to have a bit of diversity in the method of storing your cryptos. And use only companies which emphasize on security.

Cheers and have a good weekend.

DAYBIT Exchange Made my day ! AI Trading

Ok … so here is the thing, a few days ago i posted about getting onto DAYBIT and start playing around with the “Intelligent Trade”. Why not right ? After all soon DAYBIT will also be trading the SMT tokens from STEEM communities so better start understanding its features.

Here was the post https://steemitup.club/steems-smt-trading-exchange/

In that post I was trying out buying USDT just as it dips. I was trading a little bit of EOS to USDT. It managed to find the top and bought just as it started to drop

It was a success ! It managed to buy USDT at about $4.0076 for me it was sweet as I got those EOS at about $2.5 per token. Clean profit of $1.5 per token sitting in USDT

Then I wanted to try the “intelligent trade” to find the bottom and buy a little bit up.

Another SUCCESSFUL trade ! However it was flawed slightly as the real bottom was actually $3.3 however it didn’t really matter as I knew it was going to go up “fingers crossed” . I accepted that it works and i had to make sure profits were obtained from buying this round of EOS.

Then I wanted to try another option which was in DAYBIT which was this. GREATER THEN xxx AND SELL at maximum of xxx .

I must say it was a slightly longer wait this time as price didn’t hit its target for 4 days … it almost hit then it pulled back .. and almost again then pulled back. Unfortunately there wasn’t a lot of trade volume on DAYBIT so even if coingecko showed other exchanges hitting the price , on DAYBIT it was still relatively not there yet.

But it happened while i was sleeping ! The trade sold all the EOS back to USDT !

So my here is my trade history. From my tests over the past 2 weeks on DAYBIT Exchange. Taken into fact that the EOS transferred here was bought at $2.5 .. DAYBIT helped me increase the volume of EOS tokens which I had without much effort except login in and waiting to see if the price had sold.

Oh by the way I also earned some DAY tokens from every single trade that happened.

My opinions about DAYBIT, its pretty cool however the trade volumes per day is not on the high side. Do try out DAYBIT exchange if you have the time as once they get more active you will surely see its volume go up. You can use this link to try it out.

http://bit.ly/2ScUlWx

I will still continue to to use the other exchanges, however DAYBIT is starting to grow on me. And hopefully they will list STEEM / SBD soon. Thanks to @project7 from @steemhunt to introduce DAYBIT exchange to us.

Let’s get STEEM in another exchange – bitmama.io

You guys know the drill ! Lets get STEEM into as many exchanges as possible. This is https://bitmama.io Bitmama is a crypto-fiat exchange which enables traders to trade Bitcoin, Ethereum and other digital assets in Africa.

Do support and comment STEEM at its twitter post.

With STEEM getting onto more exchanges, it increases the chance of people trading STEEM and strengthening the community. It gives really good branding and also get more people curious into joining our community.

So make sure you tweet and support this effort in getting more people onto the STEEM blockchain and also more people buying and selling steem.

Remember just a few months ago we did the same voting for NETCOINS ?

gonetcoins.com

It was a successful campaign and its now listed on NETCOINs site

So lets do the same for this and it only takes a tweet. Cheers and have a great day.

All new Drugwars on Steem

Brand new screens , brand new units and BATTLES action is up and running again !

After a few weeks of total peace among everyone, DRUGWARs enabled the battles option once more. And there was a massacre among everyone for drugs, weapons and alcohol !

Those accounts which did not stockpile on defence units were of course one of the first to get hit and resources stolen.

My own account was hit with an army which took out a lot of my bouncers….. oh my bouncers … at least they managed to fend of the attacks

Then again with the new price increase of all units, its going to be expensive to replenish all those units lost. All units are now so much more expensive about 40% more compared to previous. It does come with an increase of stats as well.

Apart from only Bouncers , Knifers and Gunman new units has been introduced.

I got intrigued with NINJAs so I bought a few to test it out. Hey why not ….. i wonder what would happen in real life if you had a ninja vs a hitman.

I’ve not tried it all yet however great options to have to spend those precious resources after a successful battle.

You are now able to select WHO you want to attack in the new battle system. Previously you were only able to select from the leaderboard. So if you have a beef with someone, you can then attack them.

After getting attacked, you are then being provided with a shield which last for about 12 hours. So you are literally safe from all attacks until the shields run out.

There are a couple of interesting changes in the game and also the storage mechanics seems different now, however I’m still trying and testing out these stuff.

If you are interested in playing drugwars if you have not already done so… click on this link !

Have a great weekend guys !

What’s up with the weather in Malaysia

Its been ridiculously hot in Malaysia. With the height of 35% celsius and humidity up to 89% you literally can fry an egg on the hood of your car

According to the Malaysian Meteorological Department this extreme weather is going to last till July 2019 and its really going to be a hot hot hot few months.

Looks like the better place to be is in Sarawak seems cooler then the rest of the country.

However straight after the heat wave, we are also expected to see heavy downpours which would lead of a whole lot of different problems.

https://www.worldofbuzz.com/warning-extreme-weathers-expected-to-hit-malaysia-in-2019/

So after having a cold cold time in Krakow, Poland enjoying the 2 degrees celsius just a few months ago. I would not mind just having a few days of nice cool weather.

So if you ask me, would I rather have cold or hot ? I guess I’m used to hot weather and if required head over to somewhere with AC ( aircon ) if I needed to cool down.

The only great thing about this hot weather is that it gives me more reason to goto the swimming pool just to cool off.

So How’s the weather on your end ?

The Umbrella Academy

If you are a fan of superhero flicks, you must make time to watch Netflix’s latest series called The Umbrella Academy. The Umbrella Academy is based on an American comic book¬†series created and written by¬†Gerard Way

Just like the comics, season 1 is focused on saving the world from a Apocalyptic event and these superheros which were orphans taken in by Reginal Hargreeves since they were infants nurtured their talents to bring out the potential in them.

I’ve never read the comic book so I won’t be able to compare the plots however after watching a bit of episode 1 , i was hooked till the end of the season. There are only 10 episodes in season 1 so , good enough to fill your entire weekend.

The entire season is filled with really cool soundtracks and if you remember the 90s … you would just love it all.

Rotten Tomatoes gave its a good score of 7.23/10 and here are some of the reviews from critics

By the end of the season, you would be looking forward for Season 2. Not to give out any spoilers, it finished off season 1 very well opening it up nicely for season 2.

So if you do have time this coming weekend, I do suggest you give it a watch and see if you like it. Cheers and have a great week !

Sharing STEEM at Blocklime’s Blockchain Biz Track Bootcamp

Had the pleasure of attending Blocklime’s Blockchain Bootcamp today and its always great to attend anything organized by Blocklime Technologies as I always get to learn new things.

Harpreet the CEO of Blocklime Technologies is very well known in the blockchain scene in South East Asia and has been a speaker for many events globally.

I was given the opportunity to share about the STEEM blockchain to several people as they were really interested in STEEM. So I gave them the 20 mins talk and showcase of all the projects where are currently available.

Also had to chance to briefly chat with both Matthew ( left ) from Etherscan and also TM ( mid ) from Coingecko which were next on stage with other panelist.

Its events like these which helps educate the general public about blockchain. I’m glad to be able to meet like minded individuals where we consistently support each other when one of us organize these events.

I do hope that more initiatives like these happens everywhere to educate the general public with the right information and not some ponzi / scam which unfortunately has tarnished the views of “Blockchain” generally.

STEEM’s SMT Trading Exchange

Over the past few weeks, we’ve heard of initiatives like @steemengine which enables anyone on STEEM to create their own tokens. I think its a great idea and I knew that there were some discussion on using side-chains to create SMT Simple tokens for projects on STEEM.

People like @actifit , @steemhunt and even @magic-dice and who knows perhaps @drugwars will and some already have benefit from having their own token within the STEEM ecosystem.

Recently @steemhunt had signed a MOU ( memorandum of understanding ) stating a collaborative effort to get SMT tokens tradable on DAYBIT exchange

http://bit.ly/2ScUlWx

In all honesty, I only used a number of exchanges and this was the first time hearing about DAYBIT so I decided to dig in more. Even though there is no STEEM / SBD wallet yet , I did try depositing a lil bit of crypto’s in and start to explore this exchange.

At a glance, it looks just like ANY other exchange. And this is the top 5 exchange in Korea ? I did the norm signup and mobile registration. You had to do it to enable the deposits and 2FA.

The uniqueness about this exchange is that this exchange is just uniquely fast ! After reading more about it, its actually developed using a programming language called “Erlang” which is used for high-capacity data … example WhatsApp, LINE and even games like League of Legends.

What really caught my attention was its built in “trade intelligence”. So If you wanted to catch a trade at the top ( almost top ) and then sell .. you can actually set it to do so.

In the screen above I have set my trade to SELL my EOS to USDT after figuring out the TOP and it drops 5%. Now upon writing this , I just placed my order and waiting for it to execute. Hopefully I can report good news in my next article.

So literally you can also set the BUY signal at the bottom. I’ve not tried it out yet, however excited to see how it goes.

So before DAYBIT enables SMT tokens on the exchange, why not you give it a try so that onces SMT is on board you know how to auto trade. To signup, click the link below

https://daybit.page.link/SaF3gBzNda55NaQS7

A little bonus, if do trade on this exchange, you are also able to earn DAY token. Currently trading at $0.03 per token.

So checkout DAYBIT today …. and you must try the auto trade. Do let me know your experience on this exchange if you have used it before.
