Title: Self development and BitcoinTalk [Must read for new members]
Post by: mdayonliner on May 13, 2018, 06:52:27 PM
I understand different people have different purpose before they make a decision to do anything. My younger brother first invited me on BitcoinTalk as I have huge interests in crypto space. First few weeks were nothing special for me since I can have any information now a days from google search. But as the days were going my realisations were getting stronger that I am really learning some stuffs which I may never had any clue whatsoever, even to go for searching it. I would never encountered the topics like how to sign a message or even what is BBCode type lessons.

They say, if you hangup with 5 millionaires, you will be the sixth. You can not measure everything with money. I am here talking about knowledge and skills for life.

Here are an ongoing list of topics that benefited me to learn new skills (thanks to the BitcoinTalk community):
https://i.imgur.com/iq0PiNI.png How to sign a Bitcoin address to prove ownership (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=990345.0) (archive (http://archive.is/cmBxN)): Thanks to shorena (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=181801) for the awesome tutorial.
https://i.imgur.com/iq0PiNI.png How to sign an ETH address (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3452370.msg35969024#msg35969024): Thanks to hilariousandco (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=164822)
https://i.imgur.com/iq0PiNI.pngPGP/GPG Signed Message - Public Key (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3221263.0) (archive (http://archive.is/Frq8t)): I could not find an English version of the lessons however I ended up discovering The tutorial in a local board (Indonesian). I had to use google translator to understand the contents. You need to use google translator1. Thanks to Husna QA (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1827294) for the brilliant effort.
https://i.imgur.com/iq0PiNI.png Knowing about BBCode and learning it's use (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1727100.0) (archive) (http://archive.is/Z9otP): Thanks to roslinpl (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=158505) for the well presented topic.
https://i.imgur.com/iq0PiNI.png Vanitygen: Vanity bitcoin address generator/miner [v0.22] (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=25804.0) (archive (http://archive.is/jNIqh)): I am still trying to get a grip on this. Thanks to samr7 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=20336) for the resources.
https://i.imgur.com/iq0PiNI.png How a feature can change the entire game of getting publicity: I am talking about BitcoinTalk signature space feature and idea of using it as signature campaign. I am a marketing guy, it helps me to identify strategies - specially marketing strategies.
https://i.imgur.com/iq0PiNI.png Satoshi's own written topics/conversations (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5.0): It's an exciting experience reading something satoshi himself typed.
...more will be added as I discover and learn.

==============================================================

We see all these bounty hunting, easy money making, shit posting, spamming, scamming in the forum. It gives a negative impression to the visitors. But isn't it true, for the knowledge seekers (about bitcoin, crypto space, Blockchain technology) this place still is a heaven? FREE knowledge for life!

Let the conversation keep going... I would like to hear about your personal developments.

Update:
1 Inspired from other members and seeing all these educational materials I decided to create the English version of PGP Signature - Encrypt/Decrypt message - Fingerprint (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4059348.0) <== Feel free to review. Hope it helps the community.

It was very great to see one of my fellow Indonesian to be on your list. Btw you should add the general threads in this list, such as https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1629118.0 or https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1263461.0.

I guess you misunderstood the goal of this thread. These are the collection of knowledge-base which improved my personal skills for good. All these would not be possible if I would not join the forum. I am interested to hear yours too.

Welcome to the forum. I am sure you will learn a lot if you are open to absorb knowledge. Hope some day I would be seeing a list of yours too. See you around.

Good luck

Great topic with a great list of useful stuff. It would also be very helpful for newbies asking how to get merit: read all the topics listed here and then share your knowledge that would be as much precious as these topics.

Yes, good post. You can see that you worked! Since the introduction of the MERIT forum has become much cleaner and you can find a lot of useful information! Spending the morning with a cup of coffee, you open a section and find out for yourself a new one! And so every morning!

Not sure if you are happy or frustrated but seriously you need to stop spamming...

Here is a snapshot of your post history (http://archive.is/GrxBb#selection-1199.1-1533.33), it's not so impressive. I reported some. You need to stop spamming before getting banned.

...read all the topics listed here and then share your knowledge that would be as much precious as these topics.
If it helps a little bit to someone to digest even a bit of the information listed here, I am happy.

Nice, mdayonliner.

My journey on Bitcointalk

Name: theyoungmillionaire
Date Registered: October 01, 2017
Active Date:       March 27, 2018

To: Newbies & feeling Newbies,

You might have read many positive feedbacks about how smooth other members started here, but mine is different, it is hard to start as a newbie; people will reject you and say something bad to you even if you know youíre not that person or that member. I joined many services to help me boost my idea about quality post and their thoughts about me, but I got rejected and even worst called me ďa merit whoreĒ. It affects me a lot because I know I am not that person, so, I just improved myself to show them I am different. The mindset of ďsomeĒ high ranks is that newbies are here to rank up and join campaign(s) or bounties, which greatly distress those who are really into bitcoin & crypto. I cannot blame them why they judge newbies like that, they donít know who we really are in-person, and what our motivations in joining bitcointalk are, shitposters are to blame.  I respect their opinions; it made me more motivated to do my research, learn more about cryptocurrency, and improved your English (at least people can understand you).

I am saying these negative things because in reality, you get rejected or you rejected someone, and not all in your life is full of positive feedbacks. It is up to you on how you would convert your negative feedbacks to motivations. Always remember in life, that 10% is what happened to us, and 90% is how we react to it (Dennis P. Kimbro). There is no easy way or a continuous positive path; you just need to earn it.

Negative feedbacks carried me to who I am today in bitcointalk, so donít be discourage, be positive, and continue to grow, to show your glow in this community. I thank those people who rejected me and those people who do not like me as well, because they help me in a different way to become a better bitcointalk member. Sometimes those people who are a bit of a cunt, mostly help people, so donít judge them- learn from them.

To help our community, kindly do your research before starting a new topic.

Forum is a place to relax and earn more knowledge after a busy day at work or business. Enjoy.

Regards,

theyoungmillionaire

I have never regretted knowing bitcointalk. I had visited this site several years back, 2013 to 2014 to be precise. Never took notice of what was going here till one day,recently I read how to fix my Wallet through this forum. Since then, I am filled with peace on how competent I have become from learning here.

I also would recommend all the posts Satoshi has made: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=3;sa=showPosts;start=0

Very informative and useful, for it gives a lead of how difficult was to set-up the Blockchain Whitepaper and the creation of this forum since the very beginning. A nice read for those interested in the past and in understanding from where we all come.  :P

I really admire you brother, I feel you. I also received negative feedbacks from other users here. I like your mindset. And that's what makes you who you are now. No wonder why you have many merits than your activity, because you proved them wrong. If there is one thing that I learned from you that is,

"Use negativities as a source of motivation"

Another resource for the beginners among us...

The best YouTube channel on Bitcoin >>> Ben Perrin's BTC Sessions (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChzLnWVsl3puKQwc5PoO6Zg)

The BTC Sessions cover instructional topics, opinion discussions on different products, and interviews with key people from the crypto industry. I've been watching this guy's videos for years, Ben never disappoints!

Hi HabBear,
Thanks for the information mate however I would like to keep everything that is happening in bitcoinTalk. I do not want to end up promoting someone else's channel however it's an awesome channel by the way.

Does he have a BitcoinTalk account? if he has then I am sure he is creating great contents here. I would like to see his profile here.

He has, but he doesn't use it. His profile shows that he hasn't been active since 12 August 2017.

His profile: benperrin117 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=912467)

Yes it does however I hope you understand that my goal is to highlight the assets that we have in BitcoinTalk forum and encourage the new members to spend their time in here to learn things which are available here.

Honestly speaking we are living in a world where information is everywhere and most importantly it's FREE (?) for those who know where to find them. Google, YouTube have everything in their database, BIG business, marketing, followers, subscribers, adsense, pay per click, youTube view, money everything - make your wild guess what I am talking about. I am not ignoring the fact that there are good people around there.

If you know what you are looking for then you can find it easily using a search engine. But before knowing (that you are looking for), you need clue. In my personal experience this forum gave me the clues which I have stated on my original post.

Seems like you have done an extensive search to find his profile. Well-done mate, but unfortunately the profile IS dead LOL

Thanks for making this thread. You're right, Bitcointalk isn't all about the money, it's a great tool for self development.
Actually, I joined Bitcointalk just to find new Bitcoin faucets on Micro earnings board and promote my website. But later I realized I started to read helpful threads and educate myself. I will post links to few most important topics.
Tutorial how to sign a message was really useful for me. It helped to recover my bitcointalk account.
This thread, called"Terminology" is also important:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=126798.0
When I was newbie, I saw so many unknown and change terms and this thread helped to understand what some terms means.
Bitcoin and me (Hal Finney)
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=155054.0
I think this thread is also meaningful. It's important to know story of Hal Finney.
Now I still would like to learn about PGP keys and how to sign it, but I don't know good tutorials about it in English.

I am loving this Terminology topic. Looks like this will be another great resource for me. By the way, I have added both on the "Member's Recommendation (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3776827.msg37196470#msg37196470)" post. Very useful resources. Thank you.

Now I still would like to learn about PGP keys and how to sign it, but I don't know good tutorials about it in English.
-Use google translation for the Indonesian version on the original post. It helps. The easy way to use the translation is...
In google chrome browser
# Right click anywhere on the page
# Find "Translate to English" from the toll-tip box
# Left click on "Translate to English"

The entire page will be translated to English.

Your words really inspire in mind. We do not want to gather knowledge forum. we enter the forum only to earn money. Everyone wants to earn some money from bounty. But nobody wants to acquire knowledge.
 The crypto world's curiosity is almost a year but I have not really achieved anything. I will study the topics you present here. It would be better if I could gain some knowledge from the path you showed. Your small brother has unlimited greetings because of which you have come here.

Appreciate all these kind words. This forum really helped me / still helping a lot improving my personal skills and knowledge. If someone has this mind set that they will only earn money from the forum by spamming all over then s/he is wrong. Those days are gone. Now you need to focus on quality over quantity and thanks for merit system for that.

Hi, I love BitcoinTalk for one good reason it bring lots of view and opinion about the crypto world.  Because of it I can relay on great content to learn and decide with the help of a growing community on which or not to go in.

I feel like I missed the train working hard for years and not seeing this crypto revolution happening, the worse in this is that my work involve cryptographie and encryption...
now that I take a break I realize the potential of decentralize asset ! Let's hope the masses get it as well and the it boost the adaptation rate.

Thanks to all bounty and new project that can bring more ppl together !

Crypto is the key ;)
