Speedy deletion nomination of File:Mangroves on the shore of Lake Bacalar.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Mangroves on the shore of Lake Bacalar.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

I am offering you help in understanding Bitcoin technically - How Bitcoin works and related technologies[edit]

Bitcoin consists of SHA-256(redirects to SHA-2) and Digital signatures. I'm offering you help in learning more about these technologies. My motivation is that you contribute to the Bitcoin article and to have a neutral point of view I think it is helpful to understand the technologies used in Bitcoin. I'm not implying you are not having a NPOV but I'm simply offering my knowledge in helping you understand more about how Bitcoin works, is that an interesting proposition? Best wishes, Logictheo (talk) 23:09, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, Logictheo! I'll definitely send you a message if I run up against my limits of knowledge. For the time being I feel like I've got a good technical grasp of the fundamentals of Bitcoin, and even a reasonable understanding of RSA & elliptic curve cryptography after reading this great primer: http://arstechnica.com/security/2013/10/a-relatively-easy-to-understand-primer-on-elliptic-curve-cryptography/ Canton (talk) 18:45, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

RSA & elliptic curve *encryption*?[edit]

That arstechnica article has 3/3 pages devoted to encryption only. Τhe 3rd page doesn't mention specifically that Bitcoin uses only digital signatures, and no encryption but it has a link to Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm Bitcoin uses no encryption as part of value transfer, still that article might be interesting for those who wish to learn how Tor or https works. More knowledge can't be bad but still isn't directly related to Bitcoin. Logictheo (talk) 07:25, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

I do agree[edit]

I have a bad temper and bad manners, but I do agree and think it is fully right you go ahead with that revert. You would do the unbiased nature of the Bitcoin article a huge favor. Logictheo (talk) 15:12, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Do you accept Bitcoin for your Wikipedia contributions?[edit]

Hi. Do you accept Bitcoin for your Wikipedia(or to sister projects) contributions? Sometimes there are Wikimedia donation drives and they don't take Bitcoin. Do you? Logictheo (talk) 14:51, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
