how hard would it be to reverse engineer his drive to get the code?
>>
>>79684407
what makes you think he has the code on a drive?
>>
>>79684407
Is it too late to get into crypto if I'm poor?
>>
>>79684407
No data recovery company offered him some money for the drive?
I'd let it go for 4.4 million.
>>
>>79684505
This. The device he used encrypts the drive in AES256, but using only a four-digit passcode as the encryption seed. Pull the drive out and brute force it.
>>
>>79684407
There are tons of Israeli companies that could do this
>>
>>79684407
I heard somewhere he used a QTPass kinda software that generated his passwords and lost the key to the software. Unless the company itself gives him the password. He's fucked.
>>
>>79684474
It was $40k 3 days ago, $31k 2 days ago, and $37k now.

It's never too late or too early. It's completely fucking random at this point.

So personally I pass. But suit yourself.
>>
>>79684474
It's literally at all time high rn. You'll probably lose out if you buy right now.
>>
>>79684474
Its set to reach 100k this year. Don't buy above 50k, try to buy below 35 when/if possible.
>>
another psyops to spread fear of using crypto.
((()))
never ever believe them again.
>>
>>79684474
if you're poor there's literally no point investing in any asset
even if it goes to a new ath if all you have to invest is a few bucks your max upside is still a few bucks
spend time developing skills to increase income instead
>>
>>79686053
It makes sense to save some money, or at least buy some government bonds or invest in some stock and reinvest dividends.

Even if you get a degree you might need some cash after a few years so you can buy a car if needed, instruments related to your work, or afford a roof on your head for a few months to get started.

Gambling on cryptocurrency is retarded though.
>>
>>79684474

Yes. Buy high, sell low.

What do you think he'll do if he fucks it up twice? Suicide?
>>
>>79684474
you had 3 years to invest in smart contracts

>>79684700
>Looks like someone spent the money sorry goy, now pay up please.
>>
>>79684407
can't he clone the drive and work on the clone?
>>
>>79686978
Yes, but he's too stupid to figure it out. Worst case he could pull the flash cells and get someone to reconstruct it for him. Will cost a couple thousand but nothing if he gets 220 mil
>>
>>79684700
I hope there's a contingency plan, like, what if the file is corrupted and contains nothing?
>>
>>79684474
Its a volatile shit show let it crash and then buy if you want.
>>
>>79684407
Why didn't he write his password on a sticky note? Rookie mistake.
>>
>>79687263
He jizzed on it and can't read it anymore.
>>
>>79686224
Zip it, nerd.
>>
>>79684505

kek. gonna start encrypting drives and selling it to data recovery companies for millions.

"yeah man i totally had like 50 BTC on there"
>>
fuck off with crypto. If you want to gamble just do it with stock options.

I have just over 3 bitcoins in a coinbase account that I created back in 2014. i didn't log into my account in forever because bitcoin price wasn't doing too much and it was only about $1000 worth of bitcoin back then. when I tried logging in recently, they want 2fa and I don't have the phone anymore that I used when I signed up back then. :/

>>79687263
This, funny how passwords are now required to be complex enough to warrant writing them down physically near the machine
>>
>having so many passwords you can't remember
>>
A password that self destructs whatever it's protecting is one of the dumbest fucking things I've ever heard. Maybe it makes sense for government applications, but using this as a home user is the perfect IQ test.
>>
>>79687770
It makes sense when you think about trying to encrypt very personal information, but not so much when destroying that information also harms you.
>>
>>79685717
>at this point.
It was always random.

That confirms NSA can unlock it for him, don't think they will though.

this is why all my passwords are Sneed followed by the first three letters alphabet order number of the service I'm using.
So for Google, my password is Sneed71515
>>
>>79687444
Call the number, tell the person on the other end you need the text, if they refuse say you'll pay them a hundred bucks to read out the 2FA, keep them on the phone until your sure you're in the account. If the number hasn't been ported port it to a new SIM. Or give me the info and I'll do it for a hundred or so bucks lmao.

He offered millions for someone to do it

Just contact him if that is the case, he offered like 10% of it of I'm not mistaken.
>>
>>79684679
isn't there only like 2 more attempts before the drive locks itself out? The tamper resistant mechanisms I heard could be bypassed by pulling the microcontroller, making an image of the encryption system, and t hen brute force the password through the images. That's to bypass the tamper resistance system.
>>
>>79688699
I don't think any such thing exists
>>
>>79689015
It does exist. You can't clone the drive.

It's on an IronKey. These don't present an encrypted filesystem for the OS to decrypt, they have hardware encryption that require the passkey before the OS has any data access whatsoever. You can't just clone the drive then brute-force it because you need the key to even be able to do that.

You should rent time on AWS or a similar platform, you can throw some Teslas at it

>>79689552
I've tried all the sensible combos and typos already. I'm thinking maybe I corrupted it, but I don't believe there's a way to know the difference between a properly encrypted wallet and one that failed.

I don't buy crypto to invest. I buy it as an alternative to fiat currency. It is unironically much easier and integrated to do transactions with crypto. Also hosting any sort of webshop, accepting crypto is easier than registering for all of the bank-api-wrapper-apis services out there.

Hardware security tokens that can be used like physical keys as a single factor, see YubiKey, WebAuthn.
>>
>>79684474
Wait for it to inevitably crash by march, buy low and sit on it patiently until the next cycle. And buy ETH and XMR
>>
>>79689010
The solution to the problem
1. connect a write blocker to the drive
2. clone it
3. operate on the cloned images

!!! Attention, retards !!!
1. This is an IronKey, its flash memory contents can not be imaged or cloned without unlocking the encryption key first
2. The key is on a tamper-resistant physical chip
3. The key is automatically erased if you get the passphrase wrong 10 times

He didn't keep this data on an SSD or floppy drive that you could easily clone. The IronKey is also used to transport sensitive data between secure facilities (guarded with real weapons) and its sole purpose is to not allow data retrieval in case of loss or theft.
If you all think he's dumb for not <insert useless action> then I have bad news for you. Look in the mirror to find the nearest idiot.
>>
Keep your fucking scamcoin shit on >>>/biz/ where it belongs, for fuck's goddamn sake.
>>
>>79692096
Also, that dude was an idiot for storing his only copy on the IronKey.
You don't store valuable data on a single device that can lock you out permanently, fail, burn in a fire or be stolen.
>>
>>79688724
>>79690446
Do your research, it pumped because of banks and institutions buying it up, which kicked it through 20k and started a bullrun, which there has been a lot of pressure for because of the halving. This price increase was predicted last year, it's insane how quickly people will start claiming "it's all random!"

>>79687422
> Looked at it with a FIB

Lol, what? That has a good chance of destroying it.
>>
>>79684407
Still can't beat pen and paper and he has to decrypt all the other blocks before it or something

>>79684407

If it gets encrypted couldn't you just ya know decrypt it?

might as well just start brute forcing butcoin wallets anon

flash memory of all things is literal ticking time bomb. Dude doesn't deserve the 220 million.

This is what you get for using digital currency. Physical currency based on gold is the only valid form of currency, the rest is just fiat bullshit value backed with nothing but jewish words. Currency itself is something that should be used sparingly, while you prioritise trading goods and services instead.

gold has it owns problems too
storing it yourself (a safe) vs renting out a gold vault
when using gold vault and you want your gold back, how accessible is it?
Pick it up yourself or get it delivered? etc.

>rest is just fiat bullshit
not Bitcoin, can't say the same about the rest

he was a retard for not keeping a password in a safe place. if you dont care about the government or banks then use a safety deposit box. if you dont trust them then put slips of paper in small plastic cases and hide them around parks like geocaching. it doesnt matter if someone finds one as they wont know its the password to your ironkey.
