Bitcoin doesn't use HTTP for its communications - it has its own specific protocol that runs directly on top of TCP. So an HTTP proxy like squid won't help. If you aren't able to make outgoing TCP connections through your firewall (mainly to destination port 8333) then you'll have to contact your corporate IT people about adding appropriate firewall ...

After searching and searching I found these possiblites. Use bitminter Java client in Version 1.1.2 http://bitminter.com/client/1.1.2/bitminter.jnlp (current version doesn't work) Make your own miner which supports proxy Use a tool like Proxifier (I have not tested it personally, because it is commercial)

Yes, the most notable one being this one. It illustrates that it is possible to associate transactions and addresses with forum users' identities, as well as connecting them to some organizations (including WikiLeaks, MyBitcoin, Slush's Pool etc). Tracking users by their IP is a bit harder, although during the work on my master thesis I was able to find an ...

So, while Mac includes python it does not include gcc by default, even once you've installed Xcode 4.2 or later. For now, grab that, go to preferences, downloads and get the command line tools. Once a version of Xcode higher than 4.6 is out you'll have to find a new way to install gcc on your mac, as gcc will no longer be included, but I guess that's a ...

Almost all of the drawbacks of using bitcoin over Tor revolve around the fact that your node can't trust that it isn't segmented from the network and thus can't truly verify the state of the network it sees is real. So if you ran two bitcoin nodes (both with the same privkey), one on the clearnet just to have an accurate view of the network and the other ...

I did this, actually! In terms of disclosure, @eric allam is absolutely correct, above; you should let your users know that's going on, at a minimum, and ideally have some sort of "Start mining" button they can click to have an explicit opt-in type procedure. That said, it's wildly unlikely to generate a profit unless you have a huge base of users and are ...

Most mining software supports connecting to a pool through any port. It is up to your pool to provide mining capabilities through the appropriate ports. I personally faced a similar problem when developing a pool implementation on Google App Engine - I only had HTTP and HTTPS ports available, and mining through them wasn't a problem. As I doubt any mining ...

First of all at this stage all lightning network nodes implementations are hot wallets. There are people / teams working on hardware wallets in lightning. Also I don't get your base assumption why you would trust casa which I believe is not open source more than trusting btc pay server which I believe is open source. The only reason I see is that you ...

Yes, you can use bitcoin-cli for address generation. To learn more try: bitcoin-cli help getnewaddress Also consider using some RESTful service running on your Bitcoind host. For Node I can recommend https://www.npmjs.com/package/bitcoin-core

If anybody is searching this in the future: CoiniumServ can be self-compiled from the github source and runs on windows.

The solution for anyone else is to change the Ignition registry value for fUseProxy back to false, then relaunch the wallet. Search for it in regedit.

I want to place the Antminer at work Using your employer's electricity for personal gain is likely to get you into some trouble. If you have a legitimate reason to consider such a setup (for example, if your employer pays a lower, business electricity rate than you do), you can ask your employer for permission. I can see where to put the DNS information, ...

TRR is like Tor in that it chooses random routes, and uses public key cryptography to secure communications. The major difference is that where Tor creates long-lasting bidirectional channels, TRR would use low-latency single-use one-direction transaction forwarding. At time of writing, there doesn't seem to be a public TRR implementation, so I'm basing this ...

you can use like this.. cgminer.exe --userpass usertes.worker1:123 --url stratum+tcp://stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 --socks-proxy 127.0.0.1:1001 127.0.0.1:1001 is the proxy with port.. modify with ur own proxy

You should install dependencies first yum install python-devel* python-twisted gcc Good luck ..

I got it working for pool-x.eu connecting via port 80 (the proxy server name and port is just what my browser uses): @echo off set HTTP_PROXY=http://myproxyserver:myport START /LOW /B minerd.exe --algo scrypt --url http://mine.pool-x.eu:80/ --userpass myusername.1:mypassword --threads 4 -r -1 -s 5 Not all pools allow connections through port 80, so it does ...

There are some pools which allow mining through port 80, e.g. port80.btcguild.com. But I still search for a encrypted connection through HTTPS/ port 443. Anybody?
