Github is one of the most popular websites for sharing code, which is mostly what this post is about. We are investigating a campaign that was conducted by a company called “Gitcoin” in which they were trying to get the website to link to their own servers.
First, our investigations revealed that the company is claiming to be the “biggest Bitcoin mining company” in the world. They have also been working on a mining rig that is claimed to be able to perform the equivalent of 100 quadrillion hashes per day.
These claims were made by the company’s CEO, which was the same Mr. Charles Hoskinson. It turns out that Mr. Hoskinson’s company does actually work for bitcoin mining, but that he’s just pretending to be the chief executive to make it look like his company is legitimate. This is why we need to be careful about how we get our code to the internet. If people are claiming things about you, that should be enough to make us suspicious.
The problem is that github is an open-source project and these claims are made by a company that is a part of the project. If they made these claims to make the project look legitimate, you can be assured that it would look just as legitimate if it were made by a company that isn’t affiliated with the project. Also, this is why we need to be careful about who we let into our projects, too.
Also, if people are claiming things about you, that should be enough to make us suspicious.
Cryptomining is one of the projects that github should be wary of. These claims are made by a company that is not affiliated with the project. If they made these claims to make the project look legitimate, you can be assured that it would look just as legitimate if it were made by a company that isnt affiliated with the project. You might be able to check with the developers if you’re unsure about this.
There’s a lot of discussion going on about whether github should be making more of a fuss over a project rather than just the developers. But they’re not doing anything that stands out as questionable, or even in the realm of possible scams. Instead we’re seeing a company that’s trying to sell something, and the way they go about doing it is to try to make a case for it. The fact that they are marketing a company that is not affiliated with the project is even worse.
As a lot of people have already pointed out, this is a really bad move for the project. It seems that this is not a legitimate company, and instead its marketing is a way to try to get people to donate money to the project without actually giving them a reason to. Its also a way to get people to donate money that they aren’t expecting to receive in the first place, and it doesn’t feel like a company that should be donating money to a project.
That said, github is known for being slow to respond, and not taking the problems with their service very seriously. I doubt that the company is really going to change their ways, but it also sounds like they are going to put on a big PR about how the project is going to be a great experience for the people involved, and that they are going to help them out with the project’s server.
I think the most interesting part of the story is the “cryptomining” part. Github has been talking about cryptominers for some time now and their vision is to have a “cryptominer” game where you can use your computer to mine the currency that is the new currency of the game. This sounds like the kind of thing that you might be able to build on the game server and then send your miners to the client to mine the currency.
