2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / what are the things you are doing right now on: July 17, 2021, 03:29:02 PM
Since the market goes down and BTC is now at 31,000, what are the things you are doing besides trading, for sure everyone is measuring and looking at the current market and waiting were to have an entry, do you still trade or do some task, lang play to earn games in crypto?
I myself, still do some research for coins that i like, making small trades and invest on coins which i think will give me some profit along the way, so that i will have extra money to buy coins,
how about you?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Don't panic on: July 16, 2021, 01:59:21 PM
Why do people lose money in crypto? the number one reason is panic, they tend to be controlled by emotion, for newbies never ever just bought something you really know nothing about, that's one of the rule, research is needed, your money is important so don't waste it with wrong decisions, if you decided to what coin to buy, don't sell with small movement crypto is volatile, make some target for losses and earning.
4  Other / Beginners & Help / what happen before that you could have done better? on: July 14, 2021, 07:16:05 AM
I know every one of us has experienced a sense of regrets in being in a crypto community, but if you ever want to change one decision that could have changed your life what is it?
I have been thinking of this since 2017 since I have experienced a lot of misses which have put me in a situation where I can relax or breathe a little,
if only I have made the right decision with my old coins it could be better but, of course, since then I learn a lot and made only small mistakes, and getter better overtime on my calls and decessions
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / why some are still loosing money in crypto on: July 13, 2021, 01:38:16 AM
if you have been in 2017 you experience ups and downs of the market, lots of gains but lots of losses in some, but even though you have been through those times, still you haven't learn to correct those mistakes, I think there are lots of things that changes your view regarding the market and this are the following:
  • You follow a persons advice through his social account post example is Elon musk
  • You still believe that a certain coin will come back from the dead even though you already knew its a scam
  • you just follow your instinct and never make single research
  • emotions still control you to decided
mostly I see people who are successful in crypto have spent lots of time, before they reach where they are, yes there are things that are associated with luck but don't just depend on it.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / BTC/USDT and positioning to lessen the loss and gain a profit from dip on: May 19, 2021, 03:34:57 PM
I'm sure by now you have already converted BTC to USDT an hour ago, for newbies lessen the loss since you are just getting started, convert your BTC to a stable coin like USDT, or BUSD maybe, most newbies don't know what to do when we experience red days, in crypto, they sometimes tend to convert it to their currency, which with high fee's they have bigger losses unlike converting it to USDT, why I'm telling this not only you get a chance to keep your capital but also, and also if you want to buy back for BTC it's faster, no more transferring of money from USD to BTC, before every time I convert it to our currency and buyback, with our money its almost 10% are being taken that's big if you want to gain small amount try to swing your usdt when it goes down then if it goes up like a little sell it, just make sure you covers up the fees.
7  Other / Beginners & Help / New Comers into crypto on: April 29, 2021, 08:53:36 AM
There are lots of things you need to do before you throw yourself into investing in crypto and what to avoid this is just my experience that I want to share so you will not experience what others and I have come across, we all know you invest in crypto to earn and not to lose.

- Make your own research or you will see this on some post as (DYOR) as they say it's okay to listen but make sure not to depend too much on others'
call so that you won't regret it.
- Be ready to gamble or take risks, like other traders say, if you are not willing to risk, you won't make it to your goal.
- Capital this is very important, you need it to make a small start, you don't need to have millions, you will need it for gas, if you are transferring an airdrop or free coins there is no free now you have to remember that, the important thing is number one.
- The never say die attitude and strong emotional stand to what is happening, I'm 100% sure you will encounter this one, it will test you and it will try to break you until you give up, when that happens you lose, so I think this last one is very important.

These are just a few things you need to remember but really important if you really want to make a journey, welcome to digital currency good luck.
This will help you to get started.

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / the significance of taking profit on: April 25, 2021, 11:30:11 AM
Maybe today some lost a lot of their portfolio, maybe from thousands of dollars to a hundred of dollars, this is why taking gains or profit are very important
since the start of 2021 the price of tokens have gone have breaking statistics, altcoins take an all-time high, and we are very happy all these things turn into a nightmare in a single day, almost all of my friends never touch their coin hoping they would reach another all-time high, the same thing that happens in 2017, now the market almost wipe all of our portfolios, what's the lesson of this, when there is a chance to take profit, take it, small or big, it's again, I saw some posting they earn millions, they are so happy, but after a day they regret it, why because they are so ambitious, and no contentment on what they have, always take gains, don't let it slip away or you'll regret it.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin before and now on: February 13, 2021, 06:10:02 AM
We have seen a massive surge in bitcoin price since we enter into 2021 almost same, trend happen in 2017-2018, only there is a big difference, in a situation today before, I think it was just a pump, but there is a big difference in this year's price rally things that are notable are the following, the influence of Elon musk, Visa considers to enter to cryptocurrency, Paypal decided to open to cryptocurrency, banks, and other institutions open its door to the possibility of using it, suddenly this year pandemic helps cryptocurrency get into the spotlight in the positive note, although there is still negativity being thrown, I think most institution study it and they realize the possibilities and important of blockchain overall.
10  Local / Pamilihan / Gcash gumalaw na at mukhang papasok na sa crypto on: February 07, 2021, 01:09:23 PM
Gcash ay gumawa ng paraan kung saan daw maaring magkaroon ng mura at mabilis na pagtransfer, from other countries
malaki ang pagkakaiba balak ng globe na gawing imbes na 4.XX percent ang fee ay gawin itong mas mababa daw 2.5%
pero kailangan parin ng kyc dito, isa sa mga parang testing nila sa project na ito ay ang canada
maganda ang naisip nila na ito kasi kung maalala ko inaabot ng 3 banking days kapag sa banko ito idinaan, pero kung sa gcash maaring
abutin lang ito ng minuto, lalo na kung emergency
narito ang tungkol sa balita na ito sa link sa baba:
https://www.manilastandard.net/index.php/business/banking-report/346271/telcoin-gcash-launch-digital-remittance-corridor.html

Anu sa palagay ninyo maganda kaya itong simula?, maganda itong proyekto malaki ang matutulong.
11  Local / Altcoins (Pilipinas) / Alt Season on: February 06, 2021, 04:58:47 AM
Napansin nyo ba na almost lahat ng coins ay umangat ng 30-50% ang presyo? para sa akin masasabi ko na itong altseason kung saan ang ethreum ay mayroon nang all time high, some coins na worth 10 ay nging 5x ang laki ng value, nakita ko ito ng tignan ko ang mga lumang coins na aking naitabi at masasabi ko na nuong 2017 na high ng kanyang value ay nahigitan pa ito, anu sa inyong palagay ito na ba ang season na iyon, at kung ito na meron nakaambang correction kaya magingat tau sa ating investment.
12  Local / Altcoins (Pilipinas) / Wag magpadalos dalos on: February 03, 2021, 04:24:21 AM
Kamakailan lang madaming mga balita at mga group ng mga tao ang nagsasabi na magppump sila di umano ng nais nilang coin, madami din ang naniwala at ngrisk para dito kalaunan naipit sila at naluge ng dahil dito.
anu nga ba dapat ang ating mindset na dapat hindi mawala?

Take profit small or big especially kung gusto mo kumita, or nanganarimuhan lang.
Magresearch karin kahit konte kung totoo ba ang mga nababasa mo or isa lang pasimuno ng iilanggropo
Iwasang magpanic buying, npakahirap ng ganyan sitwasyun dahil maari kang maipit.
wag maestress kung naiwan, always positive, kung naipit nman maging aral at maging tanda para sa sunod di na ito maulit.

mga simpling payo lang pero malaki din siguro ang maitulong neto sa mga nagsisimula palang



13  Other / Beginners & Help / Why you don't need to think of ranking up? on: January 29, 2021, 08:40:55 AM
I think its been months now already that all the newbies are asking how will I Rank Up

What do you need to focus on?

Focus on learning things you really don't know about
Familiarized what is going on with the forum, how everything works
Read Discussion from high-rank post
Learn something about the discussion
Read news about crypto, blockchains, and other news related
Ask something that you find really hard to understand

The more information you know the better

Why I'm saying this all in the list will help you without even asking the words like how to rank up?
One more thing don't get offended when someone corrects you, it does not mean they hate you
they are just saying facts and they do not mean to hurt your feelings.
When all of the above are met, things will go upward I'm sure.
I hope this might help a bit for newbies that are getting started


14  Other / Beginners & Help / what have you learn? what do you need to learn? on: January 26, 2021, 06:05:03 PM
When I first found out bitcointalk it into bounty and airdrops, then I became curious about this cryptocurrency

Here are the coins that I knew when I started my journey in 2017

Bitcoin
Ethereum
Ethereum Classic


What have I found and learn in bitcointalk?

I started to mine crypto at first I try to mine satoshi with my small pc during that time, then I stop
because it's taking too long, I started to mine ethereum, ethereum classic, and other mineable altcoins

also found out that coins can be sold and convert to real money

Have my first bitcoin wallet, ethereum wallet, and more

Also, learn in bitcointalk how to make topics, learn to compose, before I'm just posting nonsense, just for activity and learn my lessons by doing things like it.

Learn how to follow the rules and regulations because if you don't follow the rules here in the community you will be penalized

Became curious about what I'm writing, it also helps me in real-world to have a discussion because Im really I shy type or just quite and never explain my side of a topic

Learn to respect other opinions and understand what they are really trying to explain.

Also learn that learning never stops, as the technological progress we need to move and also upgrade our knowledge, now I'm also sharing some of the things that I know here are some of the created topics:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5224891.msg53814563#msg53814563
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5223819.msg53787115#msg53787115
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5222321.msg53749339#msg53749339

from 2017 up to now even though I became a Sr. Member but  I think I still need to learn more and needs to keep improving myself to share and help newbies and learn from higher rank members, there is no shortcut, it's hard but if you want to reach something to work hard for it.
indeed bitcointalk help me in a lot of ways.

Can you share your journey and what you have learned and achieved from the beginning when you first step foot here in bitcointalk?





15  Other / Beginners & Help / 2 box of pizza and a person who throw his hard drive on: January 17, 2021, 12:25:45 PM
I'm pretty sure you are familiar with Laszlo the person who bought pizza with his bitcoin, now a person name Howell will pay 70 million dollars as a reward just to get his hard drive, but for me, I think it's just a waste of time to find a hard drive on the dumpsite why? the hard drive for sure is already not working since it already there a couple of years and if ever they will find it, it will be worthless since it will not work, also according to them, here is the link:
https://www.businessinsider.com/man-offers-council-70-million-dig-up-bitcoin-hard-drive-2021-1
what are your thoughts on this? for me it may result in an environmental hazard since it's in a dumpsite digging for one hard drive is not a good idea
16  Local / Pilipinas / Coinless 2025 on: January 17, 2021, 05:32:10 AM
before nabalitaan natin ang mga balita na papasok or gagamit na tayo ng cashless transaction before pa at sa mga news na ito ay binabalak na ng banko sentral ng pilipinas, ngaun meron na namang bagong balita kung saan eeliminate na ang paggamit ng coins sa bansa, pero madaming problema itong kakaharapin sa aking tingin ito ang aking mga palagay:

Una papano ang mga maliliit na tao na hindi mkakaafford na bumili ng mga gadget para dito kailangan nila un to check if may pumasok sa byad halimbawa.
Pangalawa saan at papanu ang proceseso neto ng pagsurrender ng mga bareya na inipon note: napakadami ng barya na siguradong malulunod ang bangko pag ito ay esinurender na.
Pangatlo tax sigurado may tax yan gaano naman kaya kalaki ang tax na ito, for sure ang tatamaan nnmn ay ang mga maliliit nating kababayan.
Pang apat sino ang maghahandle ng mga transaction at issue na maaring kaharapin malaking abala ito kapag nagkaproblema sa transaction, halimbawa 5 pesos lang binili mo tapos ppunta kapa sa isang branch ng government para eprocess or tatawagan para magawa ang transaction.

information ayon sa balitang ito:
https://www.gmanetwork.com/news/money/economy/771576/bsp-governor-says-philippines-will-be-coinless-society-by-2025/story/
napakalaking hamon neto kung sakaling dito talaga papunta, malaki ang budget, pero maganda ang planong ito kung susuportahan ng lahat
dapat tutukan at saka mga taong dapat ilagay ay hindi corrupt at seryoso sa pagbabagong ito,

17  Other / Beginners & Help / why its important to read Terms and condition when sending funds on: January 04, 2021, 06:35:28 AM
This post is for a newbie or old-time members who sometimes forget to read and just send their funds away and lost them the reason is that when you forgot to read and there is a minimum and an exchange or a certain address requires a minimum, sometimes they don't return the funds, I have done this before the good thing that I only send few dollars but hey, its still money, also for some coins don't forget to add the destination tag, this is is a 6digit number to know where exactly to send a certain coin that requires it is aside from wallet address it, take extra careful small money or not always read what is written below the deposit address or wallet, so no money will go to waste.

this image is taken from an exchange while im making a transaction this example is for BTC
18  Other / Beginners & Help / End of 2020 Welcome Year 2021 on: January 01, 2021, 05:03:29 AM
The year 2020 has changed everyone's life, from normal to new normal but also open its way to many opportunities, and ways to earn for our daily life
Here are some of the list that happens in 2020

Covid 19
- Although the covid start December 2019 the virus spread to the world in the Year 2020 where we almost spend our lives at home
- A new variant of covid has been discovered hoping that this will not spread or just disappear for the good of humanity
- I should say that covid also help cryptocurrency be more widely known because we are looking for better and cashless payment and transfer
where we don't need to go out of our homes etc.

Bitcoin
Bitcoin has reached its all-time high this year, another milestone for cryptocurrency from 2017 ATH we have recorded another one after 4 years, we are still a long way and believe still room for growth.
https://www.cnbc.com/2020/12/17/bitcoin-btc-price-hits-new-all-time-high-above-23000.html#:~:text=Menu-,Bitcoin%20hits%20new%20all%2Dtime%20high%20above%20%2423%2C000,extending%20its%20wild%202020%20rally&text=Bitcoin%20surged%2012%25%20to%20more,investors%20for%20the%20digital%20currency.

Ripple
- also one of the big news ripple cases, they were accused of selling unlicensed security by SEC
- https://www.investopedia.com/crypto-company-ripple-faces-sec-lawsuit-5093444

SEC
- we know how strict SEC is I think one of the biggest news is that the change of leadership in this organization ( because there are rumors that the former head does not like crypto while the new one is a pro-crypto guy)

Ethereum 2.0
- the launch of ethereum 2.0
-https://www.coindesk.com/ethereum-2-0-beacon-chain-goes-live-as-world-computer-begins-long-awaited-overhaul

Kucoin
- Kucoin is hacked last September 2020
- During those time lots of coins and erc20 coin are stolen with the total amount of 275Million

2020 is really a combination of great and bad happenings in the world

I also received bad things this year like my account banned two times, but it's because of my mistake and I learn from it, also fail in investing
but I think the one thing that 2020 taught us is to never give up, learn from mistakes, and keep pushing forward be strong.
Last year also became a Sr. Member, so I think even though it's hard we still accomplish things that we are still proud of
Hoping for this year to be a more productive and prosperous new year good luck to us and never give up.
if you can add a list of what happened in 2020 as a summary please share it here thanks.






19  Other / Beginners & Help / What we do that leads us to be hacked or scam on: December 30, 2020, 06:16:21 AM
If you are not careful enough this thing might take all your money away

Emails  Ė Mostly we received emails, we only read the subject and if we read something interesting or alarming we click it right away, I can say that somethings due to fear of losing something, we lose our cool and we just click it, and from there a lot of things happen, it might steal information, or sensitive data from our pc or lead to hacking.

Phishing site Ė This might also come from email links, we thought itís the same website that we are opening but its just a disguise for hackers to steal information, also if we open a website we login our credentials and later we realized that its not the real site, and its too late your crypto or money have been stolen.

A personal message   Ė we have lots of social media platforms, Facebook, telegram Twitter, etc, we often received messages sometimes from our friends later that we know they are hacked, and someone has taking control of it, asking for money or even asking for investment money, also received message saying you can have 100% return in just two days

Investment Ė more people are getting scam every day due to investment schemes, they try to make you believe, by letting you get the money on the first try and ask you to invest more, once you are hook in they will just disappear.
Referrals  -  this may also lead to scam people sending you referrals since you see that the price is big and possible you can be a millionaire you invest a lot of money, but sadly it's just a fake one

Note: I am not saying that all that we received might lead to scam or hacking, but this is just a reminder for us to be careful, there are lots of reminders but we still fall for these schemes, taking extra caution and research is necessary donít ask a person who recommends something to you if it's legit or not instead make your own research and ask people who are already years in this business, asking advice or question is not but we just want to make sure that our money will not go to waste

We canít really avoid it 100% because sometimes our emotions step in, like other people says donít get emotional when investing, because it will not help you, it might put you in a disadvantageous situation.
I made this post because I read last time that still there are people getting scam and hacked, even with others reminding them to be careful investing, and hacking.

Hope ill be able to help newbies and members be aware of these things,
20  Other / Beginners & Help / How important to secure your computer when it comes to the World Wide Web on: December 17, 2020, 11:54:13 AM
Since bitcoin has now reached an all-time high as we speak, there are also groups of people victimizing people and asking for ransom or money in form of BTC or crypto payment, knowledge is very important, and securing your data is one of our priority that you should always keep in mind since we are dealing with this kind of people who have advance knowledge and can attack us in lots of angles in the web.

How important is security?

People are getting relax once their pc is set up, they browse lots of sites downloading movies, files on the web without knowing they also downloaded a threat, yes we have antivirus but sometimes it doesnít detect this kind of malware or ransomware, you should not only rely on antivirus but you should be aware where you access or download something, I have encountered before a file or folder have been stolen in the computer and itís been locked, with a note file message that if you donít pay in this bitcoin address, they are going to leak the files, which is very important to the person, he ended paying, a certain amount, but paying doesnít mean 100% they are going to give the file back.
Are you aware of doppelpaymer ransomware group? This is a group of people who is being reported that harassing the people who got infected with ransomware even going to the extreme where they tried to call and threaten to leak the files or important data according to the FBI.

Here is the link to the said modus and attack: https://www.zdnet.com/article/fbi-says-doppelpaymer-ransomware-gang-is-harassing-victims-who-refuse-to-pay/
 
There are lots of warning being given regarding this kind of this attacks, so securing your computer even network is necessary, avoid downloading from unknown sites, free software to do like scanning your computer for free, I'm not saying that it's not okay to browse but take an extra careful when doing so if you think that site is suspicious get out of the site immediately and always do a backup so that if something happens, you can restore what is lost, but of course, prevention is better less hassle, and also save you money.
