Update: Online Gambling Imminent, Assesses Connecticut Governor
After the US Department of Justice announced a change of its policy on the Wire Act, there’s no stopping for the legalization of online gambling in the country, opined Connecticut governor Dannel Malloy on Jan. 9.
According to him, it is inevitable online gambling will come to Connecticut. He also specified that his administration is looking into what can be done to protect jobs associated with the state's two tribal land casinos and investigating whether to allow the casinos or the state lottery to handle any potential online gambling operations based in Connecticut.
"The Internet is the Internet. You don't turn off the Internet at any state's borders," he said. "It's an impossibility.
"If it [online gambling] moves forward, and it's clearly going to move forward, it's going to be available in Connecticut. Now we have to decide, in the state of Connecticut, what is our approach to that."
However, Governor Malloy's position is not shared by Republican Senate Minority Leader John McKinney, who assessed that online gambling is not inevitable as there is still the possibility that Congress will oppose and defeat any attempt at legalisation.
McKinney also expressed belief that there are options for Connectcut to prevent or restrict the advent of internet gambling, and that the state should not replicate what other states may decide to do.
In his opinion: "I think the governor wants everybody to believe there's nothing we can do about it and therefore he wants to gain revenue from it. That's not right."
Still, in his response to McKinney, Malloy said that the legalisation of internet gambling represents a decision on a national level – a decision that has largely already been made.

"I've been watching the second season of the US version of Secrets and Lies and so far I like it a lot more than the first season. Maybe it's the fact that in the first season I guessed the killer from the very first episode, but the second season seems a lot more interesting to me. I've also started watching Designated Survivor on Netflix and the reason why I find the series appealing is because of Kiefer Sutherland. A very different role for him this time around (compared to the ever popular 24h), I barely recognized him. "READ
"For a double spend to happen, someone has broadcast two transactions that share the same input and total more than the available Bitcoin. They will both appear on the network as unconfirmed until one of them is confirmed. Whichever is confirmed first will work, the other one will eventually be pruned from the network as if it never happened. You won't find any trace of it on most blockchain explorers (like blockchain.info) However blockcypher.com does. This is an example It shows the double spend warning and 0 confirmations since the Bitcoin went somewhere else. The same transaction cant be found on blockchain.info. Example You haven't shown any evidence of a double spend (unless I missed something, which is possible) and I haven't found any myself. Assuming this is the players deposit address: 3JciXUmXr4oAQJxRrL51sbKNmEwM7D9g1B (It is definitely an address controlled by cubits)then there were definitely two deposits for 4 Bitcoin Each about 2.5 hours apart. 2016-10-08 02:06:23 3JciXUmXr4oAQJxRrL51sbKNmEwM7D9g1B received 4 BTC, TXID: 67643826693a43411bce4c51713b0491989d14a1346c93e7f84a21b9291e126c 2016-10-08 04:33:47 3JciXUmXr4oAQJxRrL51sbKNmEwM7D9g1B received 4 BTC95594c914e25ecca361b0885dabc663260e9b6547fdd39307810e2c93bdd2e1a The players main address is 1GjEDytM5bKKYtcrYrrd4oDYMyryCCaQev it sent both 4btc deposits and received a bunch of smaller deposits.
