OpenTracker – simplistic, lightweight PHP bittorrent tracker

I just remembered that I used to run a simplistic and lightweight php bittorrent tracker out from my webserver, the tracker slowly attracts users until it used up all the allocated web server bandwidth.

This is a pure tracker with no statistic or control panel, just drop it in the web directory, create the required mysql db connection and schema and you’re good to go. You only need to include the tracker “announce” url in the newly created bittorrent file and start seeding!

Bitcoin spending and transaction can be traceable

It seems that Bitcoin is only designed to eliminate the need for centralized issuer and central authority, but not anonymity, which is a common misconception among internet users as according to one of its developers (Jeff Garzik), transaction is recorded in public log and although the identity of the parties involved can’t be directly identified, the transaction can be easily traced and linked to other accounts through data mining and statistical analysis.

So it is harder to stay anonymous in transactions that involve large currency value.

  • How to get Free Bitcoins from Bitcoin Faucet

    Good news to those who are looking to get their hands on Bitcoins, beside setting up a mining rig, one can get free bitcoin from Bitcoin Faucet, a website dedicated to hand free bitcoin.

    What you need is a Bitcoin receiving address, obtained by registering an account with either MyBitcoin, MTGox, or Vekja.

    Additionally, you may donate your excess bitcoin to the Faucet in order to share it with the rest of the world.

    p/s: Don’t be surprised if the amount you received is minuscule, hey — it’s free !

    How to mine Bitcoin in Ubuntu using OpenCL and

    Bitcoin is a form of decentralize digital currency, so unlike other digital currency services (like e-gold), bitcoin is not susceptible to be frozen, seized or invalidated. Bitcoin can be transfered transfered directly from person to person directly without intermediaries.

    Bitcoin are generated over the internet by application called bitcoin miners using a set of algorithm to ensure that the number of generated bitcoin is within predictable and limited range. Though with the numbers of bitcoin in circulation today means that it would require significant processing power to generate bitcoins, it doesn’t stop anybody who are willing to try and mine them.

    For a brief introduction to Bitcoin, please watch :

    Bitcoin Miner on Ubuntu ?
    Enter OpenCL and which allows bitcoin to be mined using a much more efficient GPU power (certain models of Nvidia and ATI graphic cards only, with appropriate drivers).

    Step 1: To install the miner, you need to “install python-pyopencl subversion.

    Step 2: Then you need to use subversion to obtain python-jsonrpc, by running:

    svn checkout
    cd python-jsonrpc/
    sudo python install

    Step 3: Then you need to generate bitcoin.conf file:

    cd ..
    mkdir .bitcoin
    echo "rpcuser=username" > .bitcoin/bitcoin.conf
    echo "rpcpassword=password" >> .bitcoin/bitcoin.conf

    Step 4: After that, download BitcoinMiner files

    wget --no-check-certificate
    wget --no-check-certificate
    wget --no-check-certificate

    Step 5: Download bitcoin server for linux

    tar xvf bitcoin-0.3.19-linux.tar.gz
    ~/bitcoin-0.3.19/bin/64/bitcoin -server&

    Step 6: Then finally, running the miner

    python -d 0 --user username --pass password

    The parameter -d 0 denotes that the miner will use GPU #1 for its bitcoin mining generation, increment it to -d 1 for GPU #2 and so forth. Change the “password” and “username” parameter from Step 3 and Step 6 appropriately to keep people from reaping the fruits (read: steal bitcoins) of your mining operation.
