Because its p2p , any decentralized network is slow especially when it has to perform so much task ... syncing every network action with every client and maintaining the hierarchy of msg's ,inbox chat etc ...

Utopia is not slow as there is some fault but it is slow for the initial syncs because of reasons mentioned above, have your tried visiting some utopia optimized sites ? that is not slow, because those get offered by just checking the network against the registered client running the uNS and fetching data from them.

Obstacles have been highlighted, I can't speak for the team what they are doing to increase speed which we are so accustomed off due to centralized servers but if something on the lines could be done, like I run my own miner which is sort of my relay station and whenever I come online my miner quickly updates my client for the time I was offline ... that could greatly help and the same miner can help me in generating CRYPTONs and keep my client and chat quick

That is some really neat and simple analysis which everyone can reproduce

Unfortunately that is a Ransomware. The basic rule is if the infection was done through an online ransomware there is hardly anything you can do.

#5 Re: General Discussion » Is the utopia ecosystem suitable for conducting opposition activities? » 2021-02-07 18:55:37

Utopia is decentralized and censorship free platform, it can not be shut down and what activities are carried out by like minded communities can not be censored/muted/deleted/modified because there is no central server controlling it, as I said 'decentralized'

Anything can be built over Utopia with it's API . for instance CRP.is is an exchange using the same API and see how well incorporated it is

Mobile app hopefully should come in this YEAR. We all are waiting for it anxiously !!

I was able to re-produce the same this issue while using the "Sign out" option. I am sure by now it must have been reported to the team through the problem support portal, after all they reward users who help them in fixing ...
Someone should do it after testing it out first

#7 Re: Off Topic » How to isolate a home server from the local network? » 2021-01-26 19:16:15

you will need to isolate your pi from rest of the server, none of your other devices should be able to connect to your pi through the lan, but only through the wan , that is one way of keeping things tight.
you will need to monitor and apply hardened network policies. Asking a friend to probe your network will allow you to find the weak spots if any

#8 Re: Off Topic » Spywares and Privacy Mantra » 2021-01-26 18:33:18

Assuming your machine is infected in that case your AV might not behave the way it is suppose too ..
However, I would recommend you try out Malwarebytes -it has a name in industry [https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/] . If it still detects any malware the most simple way which I often do on machines which need some cleaning.

Make a Live USB with a Windows ISO and boot from the LIVE USB. now your master drive (HDD) is dormant and not running anything. Once booted into the live usb download Malwarebytes and give your HDD a deep scan and remove what ever virus it shows. Once all comes up clean you boot back in your actual OS and it shouldn't have any virus anymore.

Virus often inject themselves to the data streams of the running processes and as the file is in use at times it is difficult for AV to get a finger on them.

There are two things you should be aware off .
1. If your OS is badly infected, cleaning your OS through the above mentioned method may leave your OS not able to boot any more and you will need to resort to recovery methods
2. AV's do show false positives if you play games and have various mods /hack tools etc .. for instance CheatEngine is detected as a Virus while it's a very good moding tool..

Download stuff from reputed sources only and only keeping Windows Security updated is enough, be mindful that running more then one AV would do more harm thn good.

Hope it helps !!!

#9 Re: Off Topic » Using "Run as Administrator" from a User Account » 2021-01-26 18:21:43

Hey,
Some programs require Admin rights to program and as a VPN requires to connect through virtual NIC it can not do that without admin access ... it's a very good practice that you do not use your computer with an Administrator account. Windows has rolled out Mandatory Integrity Control (MIC) [https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/window … ty-control] which keeps check on programs granted admin access through a non-admin account (user account) and ensures that the privilege is not extended to any other executable .

So the administrator rights only extend to your VPN i.e. PIA in your instance

You are good to go

#19 Re: General Discussion » Market site » 2020-12-31 12:50:58

Hey, Nice ideas you have got there !!!

I can't speak on behalf of the team but by seeing how they operate the team is never in this to make money, they could have followed the typical Crypto launch pattern ensuring $$$$ rather they launched the program and paid people who helped them improve the ecosystem with their feedback...

The team has mentioned this many a times that it is upon the users of Utopia to build on this and they can build which ever 'ebay' they want to make ... the tools already exist and it's just about making it go ... even you can do something on these lines, even hire people to help you set it up and be the first one as the market is rich for picking smile

#20 Re: Official Announcements » 1984 Group team wishes Merry Christmas and Happy New Year » 2020-12-29 15:55:19

Happy New Year to the team aswell !!!

It good to see how quickly updates are being pushed and improved are not visible in the platform , hope that it continues as new users are joining everyday and it's matter of time before Utopia will be the go-to app when anyone would want to achieve privacy and true security ...

#22 Re: General Discussion » Extension system » 2020-12-14 15:10:09

So you are indicating a reward / incentive system based on activity on this forum ...
It might hold good in traditional forums or platforms but I think team has always had the mandate that the community will decide where and how the ecosystem goes from here as everything is fully functional and working ...

Personally I liked your idea, like implement a like system on posts and every x number of likes get them 0.000x number of CRP ...

May be someone else can pitch in some better ideas too

#25 Articles and News » The Case For Investing In Crypton (CRP) Cryptocurrency, A Private Coin » 2020-12-12 12:43:25

At a time when bitcoin is trading near historical all-time highs, investors are scrambling to find the next big idea in the cryptocurrency universe. Certainly, there is no lack of options for investors to choose from but investors are encouraged to take a close look at the Crypton (CRP) cryptocurrency because of its many unique advantages.


An investment in Crypton contributes to the usage of private tools, including:

A decentralized and encrypted instant messenger called uMessenger.
A secure file sharing platform called uMail.
An anonymous browser with hidden traffic called Idyll Browser.
An encrypted e-wallet offering based on blockchain technology called uWallet.
A secure alternative to the legacy Domain Name System (DNS) called uNS.
A bot that uses proof-of-memory technology to earn Cryptons just for using the ecosystem called Mining bot.
