    $\begingroup$ You could also have a look at this post: Do I cite Mathematics Stack Exchange in my thesis/paper? And many of the questions linked there are on similar topic. $\endgroup$ Oct 15 '19 at 10:59

    $\begingroup$ If you cite correctly, then yes - otherwise it's plagiarism (the obligation to cite appropriately is exactly the same here as it is with respect to any other situation where you learn the proof from an outside source). All data needs to be provided in your text, namely the relevant username(s) (even if they're silly), specific URL(s), and date(s). $\endgroup$ Oct 15 '19 at 16:47
