Hack A Cryptocurrency Wallet riempito con Bitcoin per essere assunto da una società di sicurezza informatica

Red Balloon Cyber Security Company sta utilizzando un modo unico per ottenere le prossime reclute.

L’azienda chiede ai potenziali candidati di craccare un disco rigido criptato prima che venga loro offerta l’opportunità di lavorare con l’azienda di sicurezza.

Secondo la descrizione dell’azienda, a chiunque abbia “le capacità e la passione” per craccare il disco rigido verrà offerto 0,1337 Bitcoin (BTC) o circa 4.900 dollari al momento della stampa.

A chiunque decifri l’hard disk e rivendichi i fondi della BTC viene chiesto di acquistare un biglietto per recarsi a New York per il processo di reclutamento.

“Devi fare un’intervista tecnica un po’ insolita: sbloccare un disco rigido con Bitcoin”, ha dichiarato la società di sicurezza informatica.

Un metodo di reclutamento unico che porta risultati

L’amministratore delegato di Red Balloon, Ang Cui, ha commentato lo strano processo di reclutamento dicendo che la sua azienda è una delle pochissime che la utilizzano per reclutare la propria forza lavoro.

Secondo lui, l’azienda sta adottando questo metodo perché è una piccola azienda e non ha abbastanza risorse umane da spendere per la selezione e la verifica di ogni curriculum. L’idea è quindi quella di utilizzare un metodo intelligente ed efficace per reclutare un gruppo di esperti tecnici specializzati.

Il metodo di reclutamento registra un tasso di successo dell’1%.

Cui ha aggiunto che la società di sicurezza ha inviato l’invito al test a chiunque fosse interessato alla posizione pubblicizzata. Ha anche detto che solo pochissime persone sono riuscite a scalare l’intervista, sottolineando che il tasso di successo è stato solo dell’1%.

Red Balloon ha aggiunto 6 persone alla sua forza lavoro, per un totale di 29 dipendenti che attualmente lavorano nell’azienda. L’azienda di sicurezza informatica è stata fondata nel 2011 e ha utilizzato questo strano metodo di intervista per reclutare alcuni dei suoi dipendenti per qualche tempo.

Un appassionato di crittografia ha recentemente affermato di aver ricevuto l’invito e le istruzioni per riavere Bitcoin cinque anni fa su Twitter.

Alcuni altri hanno anche detto che Red Balloon era noto per l’uso di questo metodo di reclutamento. Alcuni di loro hanno detto come parte della Decon Hacker Conference del 2017; la società di sicurezza ha chiesto ai programmatori di decrittare i dischi rigidi con Bitcoin.

Il mese scorso, la sicurezza di Red Balloon ha nominato David Doggett come stratega senior per il suo mercato industriale. In qualità di senior del team, il suo metodo di reclutamento probabilmente non ha superato il compito di cracking dei dischi rigidi.

L’azienda di sicurezza sostiene di essere leader nello sviluppo di sistemi di sicurezza basati su firmware che proteggono i dispositivi embedded, compresi i sistemi di automazione e i sistemi elettrici, da diversi potenziali cyber-attacchi.

Il prodotto di punta dell’azienda, Symbiote Defense, è un sistema di difesa progettato per i dispositivi embedded.

Red Balloon ha molti altri prodotti che aiutano i clienti a mantenere i loro sistemi di sicurezza al sicuro da uno sfruttamento indesiderato. Questo spiega perché l’azienda utilizza l’esclusivo metodo di crittografia dei dischi rigidi per reclutare la sua nuova forza lavoro.

He bought Bitcoin for $ 10: he tells about his decade of madness and this bet that changed his life

A Bitcoin bet that paid off – There is no shortage of fantastic life stories to tell among those interested in Bitcoin (BTC), from its earliest years of existence. This is the case of a user of the Reddit social network, who announces that he fell into Bitcoin in 2011, with all the emotional roller coasters that this implies.

5 BTC removed to make room for a video game

You may have followed our incredible stories from the Taihuttu family or this Japanese restaurateur , who bet on Bitcoin as early as 2013. It had already changed their lives . But today is the story of an even earlier early adopter of the cryptocurrency created by Satoshi Nakamoto.

On Reddit, user Graphene_Hands tells us, in a long post , how his adventure with the king of cryptos began:

“I first heard about Bitcoin in 2010, on one of the many forums I have frequented in my libertarian internet circle . It was an interesting concept for me, but I didn’t pursue it at all [at first]. ”

A few months later, the same year, he briefly had fun creating a Bitcoin wallet , to collect a few cents (at the time) of bitcoins via a faucet : around 5 BTC , he said (i.e. the trifle of … 170,000 dollars today).

But he quickly gave up on this first experience, removing the wallet (and its bitcoins) forever to “probably make room for a Steam video game” .

2011: the first purchase and mining

It was a little later, in May 2011 , that our friend fully converted to Bitcoin. At that time, he explains that he spent all his free time studying Satoshi Nakamoto’s creation:

“After a week or two of obsessing and reading about Bitcoin, I decided it was the most important invention since the internet – the most perfect form of money ever created. One of the most ingenious systems ever designed by man (…) ”

At that time, the Mt Gox platform was a must-have for buying bitcoin for fiat money. He wanted to invest $ 500 to try to get some BTC, at $ 3 each .

Problem: By the time his money got to Mt Gox, our poor friend saw bitcoin keep rising . So he got caught in FOMO (fear of missing out on a good deal). So, 3 days after he initiated his money transfer, he was finally able to jump on Bitcoin (and too bad if its price was then on a historic high ). He bought 50 BTC at $ 10 apiece .

He is still announcing HODLer today those first BTCs (which he thank goodness removed from Mt Gox before the platform collapsed ), worth $ 1.7 million as of this writing. lines. It leaves you dreaming!

Bitcoin-investeerders zijn gemengd over wat de volgende stap is voor de stierenrennen

Bitcoin toont eindelijk wat kracht na een brutale correctie tot $16.200 eerder deze week.

De toonaangevende cryptocurrency is vanaf het schrijven van dit artikel gestegen tot $18.000, ongeveer 11 procent boven de lokale dieptepunten.

De munt zal naar verwachting kleine winsten zien voor de wekelijkse afsluiting, hoewel de analisten verdeeld zijn over wat de volgende is voor Bitcoin vanuit een wekelijks perspectief.

De Bitcoin-beer-houder

De huidige berenzaak hangt grotendeels af van het feit dat BTC in de vorige stierenmarkten regelmatig met 30 procent corrigeerde en vervolgens overging op nieuwe hoogtepunten van alle tijden. Een Bitcoin-daling van 30 procent van de recente hoogtepunten zou een daling naar de $14.000 betekenen. BTC heeft dat prijspunt nog niet bereikt, zoals we goed weten.

“Bitcoin Jack”, een pseudonieme cryptocurrency handelaar die vele weken geleden de overstap naar $18.000 voorspelde, deelde onlangs deze grafiek. IT toont aan dat BTC op het punt staat om onder een belangrijk technisch kegel/wig patroon te breken. Hij zei eerder dat hij op zoek is naar het openen van shortposities op Bitcoin.

Jack noemde ook de verhuizing van Bitcoin naar $10.000 toen de munt in maart de bodem bereikte.

Dit werd herhaald door een andere historisch accurate handelaar die beweerde dat Bitcoin terug kon keren naar $15.000 voordat hij weer hoger ging.

Ki Young Ju, chief executive van CryptoQuant, merkte ook op dat er gegevens aan de ketting zijn die suggereren dat de markt een correctie of op zijn minst enige consolidatie zal ondergaan. Verwijzend naar hoe er waarschijnlijk een verminderde Bitcoin-koopdruk zal zijn als gevolg van een gebrek aan stablecoin-stortingen, zei hij:

“$BTC zou op de korte termijn, denk ik, zijdelings of bearish gaan. 1/ Het aantal #stabiele muntendeposito’s op alle beurzen neemt af. Ik denk dat de koopdruk te zwak is om op dit moment $20.000 te breken.”

Er zijn wel wat stieren. De stierenkoffer hangt blijkbaar af van twee dingen: 1) de consistente institutionele koopdruk, en 2) het feit dat de financieringspercentages van de Bitcoin-termijnmarkten gereset zijn na de crash.

Lange termijn uptrend intact

Wat belangrijk is, is dat zelfs de korte termijn beren lange termijn stieren zijn. Dat wil zeggen dat velen verwachten dat een correctie slechts een klein deel van een grotere stierenmarkt zal zijn.

Zoals CryptoSlate al eerder meldde, laten trends op de keten zien dat er een grote institutionele accumulatie van Bitcoin plaatsvindt. Lucas Nuzzi, een analist bij Coin Metrics, zei hierover:

“Meerdere verkooppunten hebben gemeld dat Chinese mijnwerkers hun BTC niet hebben kunnen verkopen in Nov. vanwege een regelgevend optreden. Zoals ik al eerder heb gemeld, is daar geen enkel bewijs van te vinden. In feite lijkt het tegenovergestelde te gebeuren: BTC gehouden door mijnwerkers is neergestort in Nov.”

Het algemene sentiment lijkt bullish als de Amerikaanse dollar blijft dalen ten opzichte van buitenlandse valuta.

Bitcoin, momenteel nummer 1 op de markt, is de afgelopen 24 uur met 5,66% gestegen. BTC heeft een marktcap van $357,78B met een 24-uurs volume van $46,33B.

Mastermind behind Indian crypto fraud project arrested at Delhi airport

The Indian man is said to have defrauded investors with a fraudulent cryptocurrency by 25 million rupees.

A 60-year-old man was on Thursday at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi arrested . He is accused of being the mastermind of a 25 million rupee ($ 340,000) crypto fraud project.

Former jewelry and postcard maker Umesh Verma was arrested by the Delhi Police Department’s Economic Crimes Division after returning to India from Dubai

Verma and his son Bharat are believed to have persuaded hundreds of people to invest in a fraudulent crypto project called Pluto Exchange, which has promised monthly returns of 20-30%.

To this end, the project issued a supposed “cryptocurrency” called Coin Zarus, which investors bought in return for their investments. Shortly after the pyramid scheme started operating in November 2017, however, no more returns were paid out and Verma disappeared from the scene. In 2018 he reappeared in Dubai.

The Delhi Police filed a money embezzlement charge against Verma in September 2020, on the basis of which he was arrested on New Year’s Eve

According to a report in the Hindustan Times, the Pluto Exchange had also launched India’s first trading app for cryptocurrencies, which supposedly allowed Bitcoin ( BTC ) to be traded via smartphone.

Verma was already in custody for gold smuggling in December 2017, but this is not related to the current case.

The legal use of cryptocurrencies is currently still in a difficult position in India, because although the Indian Constitutional Court lifted a possible crypto ban by the country’s central bank in 2020 , many investors still see considerable hurdles for entering the crypto market.
