Beware of sextortion email scam

A few days ago I received about 3 emails with this attached image. It literally states that it has installed a keylogger onto my machine and has been monitoring me and monitoring my keylog.

So it stated that it gives me 48 hours before sharing my video captures and bla bla bla ……… send $1000 worth of Bitcoins to this address so they will not do it.

If you receive these kind of emails, the best thing to do is just throw it in the trash and clear the trash….. just ignore it.

What sent alarm bells ringing was that they sent email to me , from my own email with the subject matter … my name.

Well .. obviously as my emails does have my name on it. So don’t get panicky on it and you know its just a scam trying to get ur crypto.

I also did a lookup on that Bitcoin address and this is what i got.

Looks like many other people has reported it and its saying the same thing.

So beware of these kind of emails and just trash it as soon as you see it and don’t even bother opening the email. If you are running a windows machine, make sure you have at least a good antivirus perhaps by McAffee or Avast …. whichever that works for you.

Also backup your machine regularly so that if you suddenly need to format it, you have a copy of your data.

Stay safe everyone and have a great day.

What you think of my Shirt ?

Had a quick trip to Saigon to spend some time alone with my dear ex-girlfriend aka wife and also to checkout Ho Chi Minh city in more details.

There are a lot of people around the globe who still thinks that Vietnam is very back dated but here are just a few things which surprised me. For instance … the picture above was taken in a shopping mall in the city.

Now … for Lambo having their showroom in the Mall … that shows that the spending power of locals here is really strong which is sign of a strong economy of the country.

In fact, you can even get large concept stores by Samsung showcasing all their gadgets in one store. Most likely that the income of individuals working here is decent.

The Coffee culture here is picked up a lot as well. Vietnam has been an attraction for digital nomads and therefore a lot more coffee outlets such as these with really fast internet … about 50 – 100 mbps is available almost everywhere for free.

Well .. not only coffee .. but everything else. Now this cheesecake was just delicious and had to be in my post. This drink .. i really wished I’d written down its name … its some sort of soya based drink with jelly in it.

Ho Chi Minh has really become a city that does not sleep. This was take about 1am in the morning and it sure looks really busy.

There are many eateries around Ho Chi Minh and some of the best ones are really hidden and out of sight, as you seem to find it in some alleyway then boom ! a really awesome restaurant serving amazing food is there. My suggestion is to checkout trip advisor

Time really flies when you are having fun. The main reason for this trip is to spend time with my wife and Its her birthday … so Happy Birthday @ireenchew …. the love of my life.

Share STEEM to the world

I decided recently that I was going to start creating content and start sharing Steem and its projects in my other social media. So i began by creating videos, participating in twitter conversations & telegram groups as well. Then now I’m publishing on LinkedIn, this to gauge which social media would work for me.

Here are the two videos which I used for YouTube

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/share-discover-amazing-products-steemhunt-simon-pang/

A basic intro to Steemhunt , I then went to start with other videos. One of it was actifit.

There was other videos which I did however it was not a great video so I did’t put it up.

The whole idea is to be able to reach a larger audience and explaining to them about this amazing social media which we all own.

I do suggest that everyone follows suite in promoting steem on other social networks as there is no one else who would be doing it if we ourselves do not take up this task.

Cheers and hope you are having a brilliant week !

Another Great impromptu meetup

This time slightly larger crowd and we had our favourite @joythewanderer who just came in after travelling around Vietnam.

Having meetups like these is very exciting as we all have a common thing which we always talk about. Crypto & Steem …. i meant apart from all the other “worldly” chats .. it always comes back down to that.

Thanks to @aaronleang & @joannewong for always organizing this as it never is easy to quickly pull everyone together at the very last minute.

Now …. talking about meetups !! its only 1 more day left before I head over to Penang for our Steem Sharing Session !

If you are in Penang , Malaysia tomorrow and wanna join in, here is the signup site http://steemxpv2.peatix.com

I’ll start my journey up to Penang in a few hours time … its gonna be a long yet awesome day for sure !!

Another impromptu STEEM meetup

With great pleasure I attended a very impromptu meetup and we had a number of steemians near and from far that came. The common thing we all have in common is we are all active on the STEEM blockchain.

Was great to met up with  @goodwithtravels who was on his Asia trip and taking the time out to meet with steemians in Malaysia. He had previously met up with the guys in Kota Kinabalu and now in Kuala Lumpur

It was a fun meetup as always and great to have these guys always. Cheers and have a great Weekend.

DAYBIT is listing STEEM & SBD !

This is absolutely fabulous news !!!! Here was the actual announcement.

https://support.daybit.com/en/support/solutions/articles/36000129822–announcement-steem-sbd-listing-and-wallet-transactions

So why am I super excited about this ? Well not too long ago i tested out their intelligent trade system and it really simplified my trades as I don’t really need to monitor them like crazy the system does that for you.

Here was the post that I made and how much my test account made.

That was tested with only EOS / USDT pairing. Now with DAYBIT able to accept both STEEM and SBD plus strategies to get the other SMTs there ? This is going to be just exciting !!!!

Imagine how much trades can be done semi-automatically. Why I said semi-auto is because some intervention is still required !

But I’m really looking forward to it.

[Listing Schedule]

  1. STEEM & SBD Wallet Open: 2019.03.28 14:00:00 (UTC +9)
  2. STEEM & SBD Listing: 2019.03.29 14:00:00 (UTC +9)

If you are not already on DAYBIT , here is my referral ID which I do hope you will use

Plus every trade you do on DAYBIT, you get some DAY coins as well. Hope that one day the value of that coin shoots up to the moon as well ehhh.

Sharing the STEEM blockchain to Crypto enthusiasts

Now what happens when you get a STEEM fanatic / addict / evangelist going to a crypto meetup. I will surely talk about STEEM of course !

Had the pleasure of going to a impromptu meetup with some of the community leads in the crypto scene here in Malaysia. Its always great chilling with this bunch as you get to hear updates from various projects around the crypto scene.

Sandra from ZCoin and Marcus from Invech had so much stuff going on at their end that its exciting to chat with them as you know even though its a bearish markets, these projects is still around and moving strong.

Manage to meet up with Salamantex CEO and CTA as well and discuss opportunities in integrating STEEM into their payment gateway. They would be pushing for marketing in Malaysia and South East Asia real soon. It would be great to be able to get merchants on the Salamantex to be able to use STEEM as one of the payment. I’m sure its a solution which people are looking forward to

Also had to promote my next event in Penang on the 6th April 2019

For those who are in Penang on the 6th April do signup for our STEEM sharing session https://steemxpv2.peatix.com/view

Paycent now accepts STEEM

Have you guys heard ? Paycent a CRYPTO-FIAT card … just a bit about Paycent ( https://paycent.com/ )

Paycent is a financial platform powered by Texcent, a Singapore-based company dedicated to deliver fully integrated mobile applications. Texcent has received a remittance license from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and is a proud member of Singapore Fintech Association (SFA). The company is headquartered in Singapore and has offices in the Philippines and the U.A.E.

With them now accepting STEEM as one of the currency we would now have access to a larger option of liquidation especially in South East Asia. I guess all the events and the shout-outs in this part of the world has started to gain traction.

Do drop by and at least give a quick like to let them know that the community in STEEM supports this move.

Looking forward in seeing more payment gateways / exchange and other companies take on STEEM as one of their accepted cryptos as this is great publicity and helps in the growth of the community.

Using STEEM promo videos to promote our offline events

If you’ve not been around for awhile now, I guess you may have missed a little competition created by surfermarly on creating a 60 second video promoting STEEM.

My personal favourites are these 2 videos which I would be using to promote our offline events.

This was done by @ashtv and I personally think its just brilliantly done simple and straight to the point.

Here is the other 2 videos which I would be using to share onto social media prior to the event.

These amazing videos really showed how amazing the community is in terms of creativity and I’m just blown away with the professionalism in these videos.

I would be incorporating these videos into my presentation as well as it pretty much explains STEEM in 60 seconds.
