This is about right and thank you, @FadedSergal. It's so good to see I'm not alone in my dismay at the travesty of a community net Chebucto Net has devolved into.

In their latest move, Chebucto Net decided to edit a webpage in my personal webspace on their server without any notice or discussion with me.

Honestly, if any friends still use their services, I honestly say you should be actively looking for alternatives if you have not already. Check out the story here:

Updated the spreadsheet on Chebucto Net Bitcoin blockchain history to include new Story Versions section.

Story starts here:

then goes here:

The CAD figures in Version 1 story for Transaction Fees and Difference are drawn from the daily exchange CAD prices on the various transaction dates.

In Version 2 story, the Transaction Fees are unchanged but Difference reflects today's CAD price for these unspent Bitcoins.

Not included in this reckoning but very much still part of the tally are 2.73222157 Bitcoin Cash, today worth CAD $3,368.42 and 2.73222157 Bitcoin Gold, CAD $212.98, which have not been counted but are still unspent and in Chebucto Net's possession.

Update on the update on local charity and Bitcoin

Read this first:

https://plus.google.com/109471644185457910515/posts/DhpBqDJnKxh


In an apparent acknowledgement that the Chebucto Community Net Treasurer's AGM account of the Chebucto Bitcoin holdings was, shall we say misleading and incomplete, they have produced an addendum to their report that was posted to their website:

http://www.chebucto.ns.ca/Chebucto/AGM-2017/FinAddendum.pdf

Owing to the fluid nature of documents posted online, I've posted a screen capture of this document.

In addition to not knowing how to write out the word Bitcoin, this second version of the story is no more supported by the public Bitcoin blockchain record than their first story and if this is the story they are going with, more than $1,700 CAD worth of Bitcoin is apparently not in their possession after all and has been given to third parties without any accounting of the fact.

The public Bitcoin blockchain record clearly and unambiguously shows six withdrawals from the Chebucto Community Net wallet, all in November 2017, with five of those withdrawals also going to single transaction addresses, that is, Bitcoin addresses with only one transaction, where the Bitcoin is added to the address and remains there.

In this new version of events Chebucto Net denies all knowledge of these payments it made and gives a total amount of Bitcoin at variance with the public blockchain record.

If those single transaction addresses are not Chebucto Community Net addresses - and they are not transaction fees, those are already accounted for on the blockchain, though none are listed in this new version two of the facts from Chebucto Net - then who do the Bitcoin addresses belong to and why did Chebucto Net give them so much money off the books?

Maybe folks don't understand Bitcoin or the blockchain but the main point of the blockchain is it's a timestamped public record no human or group of humans can alter.

So the rest is simple subtraction.

Chebucto Net started 2017 with 2.73222157 Bitcoins.

Their main Bitcoin address now contains 0.59481008 Bitcoin, with the most recent transactions, two payments from the exchange address, being in December 2017.

https://blockexplorer.com/address/13MTexWakKA6dpid71vvK7WVDNR9AdN5Ji

2.73222157 - 0.59481008 = 2.13741149

They paid transaction fees on their six withdrawals:

2.13741149 - 0.00588478 = 2.13152671

They now say they sold 1 + 0.96 Bitcoin:

2.13152671 - 1.96 = 0.17152671.

And would you look at that!

0.17152671 is exactly to eight decimal places the total Bitcoin sent to the single transaction addresses that Chebucto Net's new version of the facts completely omits. Huh.

In addition the Chebucto Net addendum makes zero mention of their holdings of 2.73222157 Bitcoin Cash or 2.73222157 Bitcoin Gold.

There's a name for this kind of accounting.

Chebucto Community Net Bitcoin record from the public blockchain. Green are known Chebucto Net addresses, red are probable exchange addresses and black are single transaction addresses which may or may not be Chebucto Net addresses.

This chart amended from the one posted earlier by adding an omitted approximate CAD value for one of the single transaction records and tidying some border lines.

Update- Story continues here:

Chebucto Community Net Treasurer's report wrong.

At the Chebucto Community Net Annual General Meeting in April 2018, Treasurer Alan Turner said that Bitcoin could no longer be held as an asset (but gave no reason for this) and that Chebucto Community Net sold their one Bitcoin, receiving $8,520, which was declared as 'Other Income' on their annual financial statement, prepared by HDCA, Inc.

This story is not supported by the public record.

Bitcoin transactions are all contained on a public blockchain. These timestamped records are unalterable by any party. The story they tell is substantially different from the account given to the membership by the board of Chebucto Net.

In a blockchain transaction record Bitcoin addresses are recorded. While these are not directly tied to specific people or organizations in the blockchain, it is frequently possible to examine the transaction record for an address and determine patterns of use that can indicate what the address is.

A Bitcoin wallet can have an almost infinite number of Bitcoin addresses. Up until March 2017 when I left, Chebucto Net had 2.73222157 Bitcoins, kept at three addresses:

13MTexWakKA6dpid71vvK7WVDNR9AdN5Ji
14xF2ZAGQ66G7F7nCrAnAWcJvxP7Gerz4R
17yZRkZBsYjuVwsGBtMntMmvTQEq6kM53T

Following the transaction records shows a series of transactions in November 2017 where some 2.21741149 Bitcoins were sent, most to what looks like an exchange address which accepts coins from multiple sources then passes them on to a high volume address where they were then tumbled through multiple addresses. In December 2017 0.08 Bitcoin were paid back from the exchange address to the Chebucto Net address, which would appear to indicate that Chebucto Net had concluded their trading and removed their unsold Bitcoin from the exchange by the first week of December 2017. No other transactions have occurred since the first week of December 2017.

On this spreadsheet known Chebucto Net Bitcoin addresses are in green, the likely exchange Bitcoin address is in red and single transaction addresses, which may or may not still be under Chebucto Net's control, are in black.

Chebucto Net still has 0.59481008 Bitcoin at its main Bitcoin address at the time of this writing. The different single transaction addresses which may or may not still be Chebucto Net's contain 0.17152671 Bitcoin. At today's prices Chebucto Net's holdings are worth around $6,144 and the single transaction accounts about $1,712.

One thing is very clear: Chebucto Net Treasurer Alan Turner lied about Chebucto Net selling off all its Bitcoin and since Chebucto Net is still holding Bitcoin months later, it's also apparently untrue about being unable to keep it as an asset.

In addition to the Bitcoin Chebucto Net possesses, it also holds 2.73222157 Bitcoin Cash and 2.73222157 Bitcoin Gold worth about $2,900 at today's market prices.

Note: Earlier Twitter tweets and Google+ posts contained incomplete information and have been deleted. The full transaction record required some time to go through properly and is accurately reflected in the spreadsheet below.

My credentials are I set up this Bitcoin donation system from scratch, the very first charity in Canada to offer this service, which has been the single largest money maker the Chebucto Community Net ever saw in its 24 year history. When I ran the service every satoshi was accounted for and the board received full and complete reports on it. Since then it has become much more opaque.

Frankly, I have truly had my fill of the awful people currently running the place into the ground. After saving them from bankruptcy and collapse twice, taking a salary hit of $124,500 in unpaid salary over ten years I was told would be made up to me, donating $12,000+, my life savings to them, working hard to get them some $67K in grants to build North-End Halifax charity highspeed and setting up a giant Bitcoin cash cow for them, I am literally the most hated person in their history.

Fuck the Chebucto Community Net and fuck the incompetent asses who are hosing the place. A lot of good people worked hard to build it. It deserved better.

These would be the people who begged me to work full time hours for half time pay, which I did for ten years 2007-2017. They said they'd make it up to me. $124,500.00 they owe me.

These would be the people whom I donated $14,000 and all my free time to.

http://www.chebucto.ns.ca/Chebucto/AGM-2017/Chair.pdf

These would be the people who permanently deleted seven years of my work documenting the labors and efforts of scores of volunteers working selflessly for the cause of non-profit networking in the Atlantic region.

These would be the people who in a year have become a source of email spam enough to be repeatedly blocked on multiple Real Time Blocking Lists, who've lost a significant number of users to downtime and incompetence.

I tell the truth. These people lied to me, someone who gave two decades of his life, free and work time both; my heart, my soul, every possession I had. If anyone else believes them on anything at all, I stand as example of how that will work out for them.

They can't even tell the truth of how long I worked there - 1997 to 2017.

The place was four months from shutting down forever back in 2007 when rather than deprive hundreds of seniors of contact with their families I took a 50% pay cut. Treasurer then and now Alan Turner told me they'd make it up to me.

When time came, no.

When funding from @WayeMason fell through in 2011 I donated $12,000, my life savings, to finance the bulk of the first non-profit residential high-speed this province ever saw, rather than have it and them fold.

Without that they'd have been gone by 2013.

One of the hardest pills I've had to swallow the past year was the members, the people I had direct contact with, whom I spent individually many hours each helping, often as not on my own time, for two decades, when time came, didn't give 💩💩 about me.

#Bitcoin and related pricing 17:00 AST (-0400) 04-Feb-2018.

#BTC and #BCH rallied briefly to $12K and $1.6K CAD respectively before falling back again. Miners and HODLers remain confident in long term price rise but the present market still waiting for Godot for bubble to pop.

Bitcoin and related forks pricing 22:00 AST (-0400) 02-Feb-2018.

While cryptocurrencies have been taking a hit the past several weeks, miners are hashing at near record high rates and multiple chip manufacturers (NVidia, Samsung, AMD) have gotten into mining sales in a big way which is not exactly the way "bubbles" behave when the whole thing's a scam as many in the media regularly claim. A lot of big money thinks the prices will be going up and their investments are reflecting this.

Included PayPal and Bitcoin links for anyone finding this handy to show their appreciation. Every bit helps when you have no income. :)

I'm for hire in Halifax NS and know all kinds of amazing things. I set up the first Bitcoin charity donation system in Canada.
