1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Missing Coins in my Portfolio on: August 02, 2017, 08:29:56 PM
Hi guys!

I am about to divide 70% of my BTC (30% I will keep as BTC in order to do some short term trading) into different altcoins.

So I checked some threads here, had a look at those coins and their plans for the future.

I came up with the following coins:

ANS (NEO)
CVC
EMC2
GNT
LSK
NMR
OMG
STRAT
VIA
WAVES
XVG

I have 3-4 spots left in my portfolio.

Which coins would you recommend me to add? I have to say that I have no interest in ETH/ETC, XRP or BCC - so those are not part of my deal. Wink

Looking forward to hear from you!
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / SWT - Buying / speculation opportunity? on: July 26, 2017, 12:52:56 PM
As you all my know SWT went under an exploit-attack about five days ago.

The price went down from ~0.00085 to ~0.00035 BTC

Nevertheless the team stated that they will continue to work on their project:

Do you think after such a hard drop it is worth taking a chance on this one for a quick recovery?
3  Local / Anfänger und Hilfe / Frage zum Electrum-Wallet / BitcoinCash-Split on: July 23, 2017, 02:47:33 PM
Hallo zusammen!

Der 1. August rückt näher und bei mir vergrößert sich angesichts des BTC/BCC-Splits etwas die Unsicherheit.

Zwar kündigen Börsen wie bitcoin.de und Bittrex an, dass diese den "Split" für die von ihren Kunden eingelagerten BTC übernehmen und anschließend beide Varianten verfügbar seinen, doch sicher ist sicher - also habe ich mir Electrum installiert und nun meine BTC darauf transferiert. Habe einen Seed angelegt, ein Passwort gesetzt, die Private Keys als CSV abgesichert und die Zwei-Faktor-Authentifizierung aktiviert ... das sollte genügen.

Nun aber meine Frage:

Wenn nun am 1. August der Split erfolgt ... was muss ich dann machen, um auch die BCC zu erhalten? Oder muss ich einfach nur abwarten und plötzlich "erscheinen" die BCC neben den BTC im Wallet?

Ich habe diese Anleitung gefunden, bin damit allerdings hoffnungslos überfordert: http://docs.electrum.org/en/latest/hardfork.html

Danke für eure Hilfe!
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / BIP-91 affected coins - investment opportunity? on: July 23, 2017, 08:54:24 AM
Hi everyone,

I just noticed that many coins on Bittrex have the following message within the Wallet-section:

Quote
Bitcoin asset wallet disabled until after BIP-91 is settled. https://support.bittrex.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000761392

The following coins are affected:

AMP
ARGS
BCY
COVAL
DTB
FLDC
GEMZ
MAID
MTL
OMNI
PDC
SCOT
SEC
TRIG
XCP
XTC

Do you think that those coins in particular will rise once BIP-91 is settled?
5  Economy / Trading Discussion / Taking Profits - BTC, Free Coins or Both? on: July 21, 2017, 07:14:40 PM
Hi everyone!

I would like to hear your opinion on three scenarios. I am not sure which one would be the best.

Let's say that you are trading altcoin X and you think that it will rise significantly within a short period of time.
You put 1,0 BTC on the trade (example).

Now the altcoin X rises as predicted to an BTC amount of 1,5 (+50%).

Which profit taking strategy would you prefer?

1) Convert everything into BTC

- Now you have 1,5 BTC instead of 1,0 BTC
- You can use 0,5 BTC more for future trades in order to make more profits
- You have 0,5 BTC more - it is way more reliable than other crypto currencys out there at the moment

2) Take out your initial investment, keep free coins

- Now you have 1,0 BTC and an amount of 0,5 BTC of altcoin X
- You can start trading with 1,0 BTC again
- Instead of more BTC you have an amount of altcoin X - but those free coins have the potential to rise even more (especially looking at the possibilities of crypto currencies)

3) Convert some profits into BTC and keep some free coins (e.g. 50:50 of the 50% profit)

- Now you have 1,25 BTC instead of 1,0 BTC
- You can use 0,25 BTC more for future trades
- You have an amount of 0,25 BTC of altcoin X (which can rise etc.)

So ... which one would you choose?
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The "I cannot afford 1 BTC"-Problem on: July 21, 2017, 12:52:05 PM
Hi everyone,

I have a question concerning the current high value of a BTC. I talk a lot with friends who don't know much about BTC and try to convince them to buy some too.

When I tell them about it, the same question which always comes up is:

"But since it is so expensive (2000-3000$), how can I afford 1 BTC?"

I always tell them that it is possible to buy 0.5 BTC or even 0.001 BTC. But I think this is a major problem which gets worse with the price rising even higher.

So here is my question:

Are there any plans on changing BTC to make it "look more affordable"? Perhaps introduce something like mBTC (worth 0.001 BTC / 1 BTC = 1000 mBTC) so that people have a better feeling buying something, which is not a number behind a zero (e.g. 0.025).

I don't want it to become something like a "discount looking currency". But it's a psychological problem, that people don't like to buy only a part of something or (as in this case) often don't know that they can buy less than 1 BTC.

To say "Well, the people who don't know better shouldn't buy anyway" seems to be the wrong approach on the way to mass adaption.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Possible Coins for a Pump on: July 14, 2017, 07:36:49 PM
Hi everyone,

I would like to hear your opinion on some coins which I think could get a pump this month.

I looked for coins with a low market cap and had an eye on their chart history (especially if they had been pumped before).

These coins I will have a very close look on:

Tokes (TKS)
Legends Room (LGD)
Curecoin (CURE)
Hacker Gold (HKG)

Some more candidates, but I am not sure about them:

Internet of People (IOP)
Golos Gold (GBG)
eBoost (EBST)
DT Token (DRACO)

What do you think of those? Or do you have other suggestions?
8  Local / Trading und Spekulation / Quellen für Trading-Signale? on: July 03, 2017, 08:25:38 AM
Hallo zusammen,

ich bin derzeit auf der Suche nach ein paar Quellen für Trading-Signale - besonders bezogen auf Altcoins.

Habt ihr vielleicht Tipps was besondere Telegram-Gruppen oder Twitter-Accounts betrifft, die ihre empfehlen könnt?

Viele Grüße!
9  Local / Anfänger und Hilfe / Frage zum Bitcoin-Split on: June 17, 2017, 09:22:25 AM
Hallo zusammen,

ich habe eine Frage, die auf die kommende Bitcoin-Veränderung am 1. August abzielt.

Derzeit besitze ich Bitcoins und versuche, diese auf einer Handelsbörse wie z.B. Poloniex durch Traden von Altcoins zu vermehren.

Hier nun meine Frage: Angenommen, ich würde Ende Juli mein komplettes Bitcoin-Guthaben auf so einer Handelsbörse in Altcoins umtauschen und erst dann in Bitcoins zurücktauschen, wenn sich die Lager auf eine Lösung in den ersten 1-2 Augustwochen geeignigt haben ... würde ich so die Gefahr umschiffen, dass mein Bitcoin-Guthaben "wertlos" wird? Sprich: Statt die Bitcoins in einem Offline-Wallet zu sichern, würde ich den Altcoin-Weg über eine Handelsbörse gehen wollen.

Viele Grüße und Danke für eure Hilfe!
