1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Quit the doubt, it's not too late for Bitcoin investment. on: June 23, 2024, 05:38:16 AM
 The journey of a thousand miles begins with a step and I consider those who were opportuned to mine Bitcoin and also invested at the early days as the ones who took the best step, it's not supposed to be debated cause we've all seen the success of the project from the first day of creation by Satoshi to this present day, except maybe the ones who sold their assets for unnecessary wants, but people who held for a long term are benefiting well from their decisions currently. However there should be no calls for alarm for those who weren't opportuned to invest at the early days cause there's still hope and the different ATH's Bitcoin has reached is a big prove, so the best decision to make is to invest at this point when it's still the current price. The people I feel sorry for are those who have the financial capacity to invest heavily in Bitcoin but still have doubt over it's potential, I mean why would anyone even have doubts when they've seen Bitcoin set different ATH since it's creation to this point, well there would always be a doubting Thomas, those who would still find it difficult to believe even when they've seen prove that sometime is real. Nevertheless, if there's anyone who's willing to invest in Bitcoin but still have doubts, I put it to you that the best decision you'll make is to buy Bitcoin and Hodl, don't get discouraged by the drop in price cause I believe you should've known by now what volatility means.
2  Economy / Gambling discussion / Avoid Miscalculated Risks In Gambling. on: June 21, 2024, 10:23:51 AM
 Taking unnecessary risk in gambling is mostly done by ignorant people, or those that are newly into the system, well it's understandable because they're ignorant of the risk management of gambling, but what baffles me is seeing experts taking unnecessary risk like betting heavily on risky odds, I consider that unwise cause no matter how rich one is you don't go wasting money all in the name of taking risks. we all know that in event where winning is a 50/50 chance one is required to bet wisely right? Then I wonder why some people would bet heavily on odds above 5 points, some would even risk all their profits to make more profits. The aim of one who wants to be successful in gambling shouldn't be to waste money in the name of taking risks, it's avoiding numerous loses and spending wisely even if you want to take risks it should be calculated risks not risking all your profits to make more profits. Stick to your limits, bet on low risk odds, take profits and don't bet all your profits one very risky odds, and most importantly bet on what you can afford to lose, these are what is expected from a gambler who wants to be successful, not taking unnecessary risks.
3  Economy / Gambling discussion / What category would you classify such bettor? on: June 18, 2024, 07:22:25 AM


 I came across a bettors ticket on the media so I decided to raise a discussion with it here in the forum, well some people in the comment section rained abuse on the bettor for making such bet, some think he's greedy there were others who think he's a risk taker, while some still said he's very unlucky. In my own point of view,  judging from the image above it's either the bettor is greedy or lack good strategy, why I think he's greedy is because, if you check the odds properly you'll notice that the bettor is very greedy in selecting very risky odds and seems he wants to cash out very big by all means, well one can still say he's very unlucky, he took risk no doubt but that's a miscalculated risk out of greed to get bigger odds and make more profits. With that being said, what do you think is the perfect categories to classify such bettor?
Greedy
Risk taker
Lacks good strategy
Or he's just an unlucky bettor, give your reasons and why you think so.
4  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / A method i use in avoiding high Bitcoin transaction fees. on: June 16, 2024, 01:22:43 AM
 I'm not really impressed with the high transaction fees and I don't think anyone is, so I came up with an idea. I know many would be familiar with this but those that are not could use this method when transferring BTC. Instead of transferring Bitcoin to someone and end up paying high charges, you could ask the reciever for a USDT wallet address I mostly recommend Ton USDT address (I normally use that network cause it's more cheaper) then convert the BTC to USDT or send USDT to the reciever and then they could convert back to BTC when they successfully receive it, but please don't fail ask for both the Ton USDT wallet address and tag/memo or comment for those transferring from OKX if not the transfer would be completed but the reciever won't get to recieve it. The good thing is that it might be recoverable but the process is very stressful and tiring due to poor costumer service from most exchanges. So always remember to ask for tag incase you consider this method and decide to use Ton for the network.
5  Local / Politics and society (Naija) / Do you support the bill proposing shift to regional governance? on: June 09, 2024, 03:13:35 AM
 It was all over the news that our president, Ahmed Bola Tinibu, made an advance on regional government. Recently, there's a news that he'll receive bill proposing a shift to regional governance in the coming week. Well to those who don't understand, it means that all the regions would have a leader like the prime minister ruling over the states in the six regions, and each regions would have to manage their own resources and pay tax to the federal government,  just like it is in the UK. To me, i think it should be considered cause it comes with lots of benefits, Nigeria as an underdeveloped country is too big to be handled by one president and it would be good to have leaders acting like the prime minister to handle their various regions, also to impeach a prime minister is not really hard cause if the person is not functioning as required and the house pass a vote of no confidence then he'll easily be removed, (like anybody wey fuck up them go remove am 2secs) not going through plenty procedures. So I think anyone assigned the duty of a prime minister would be very serious with their position. The six geopolitical zone would have to manage their own resources and develop their regions not everyone depending on petroleum for their selfish interests. So what do you think about it, are you in support or against it? And what are your points if you think it's of no good use?
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Would you bet against the club you support? on: June 02, 2024, 11:39:07 PM
 Pardon me if this post or something similar have been created before now. Well this post was inspired by a news from Football Tweet on  X concerning a Swansea City FC   employee who got sacked for betting on the club he works in to lose for about 130 times. It's so unfortunate he lost his jobs, Well some people were in his support and claimed it's not his fault for the club to keep losing and the man was only trying to make extra cash, while there were others who claimed it was betrayal and he should've supported the club as a true fan. Left for me, I feel he's not a fan of the club and just an employee and I'll do same if I were not a fan of the club I work for moreover the club kept losing and he seized the opportunity to make extra cash from their misfortune. Well I never betted against the club i support I'll rather bet on other matches. However this brings us back to the question, would you bet against the club you support ?

8  Economy / Gambling discussion / Is this true or some superstitious believe about gambling? on: May 12, 2024, 10:55:03 PM
 I boarded a bus going home from the bank yesterday, then I remembered some football match had few minutes to kick-off then I brought out my phone from my pocket to place some bet, immediately I opened the bet app a man sitting next to me, tapped me and said that gambling is Satanic and I should desist from it, at first it sounded so funny and made me laugh but with a serious face he further said that it's manipulated by demons and that's why the house would always have the higher edge. He said he used to be a gambler but stopped when he discovered that and that there are demons helping the casino and sport betting owners to manipulate people into becoming addicted and getting more money from them, they give to selective people knowing fully well more people would lose and they'll gain back what they lost when more bettors lose the old man made it sound real but I don't believe that, i think he's lost too much in gambling before he stopped and is looking for anyway no matter what to discourage people from being like him or he's just being too superstitious. What's your opinion about this please?
9  Economy / Gambling discussion / Would you cashout or wait for the game to conclude? on: April 28, 2024, 08:39:29 PM



 I saw this on the media so I decided to bring it here in the forum for us to discuss about it. If you notice in the first image, the bettor played a very risky game which comprises of 15+ games with a huge fee of 1m naira. Please take note that this post is not to promote risky gambling or mislead people to emulate his strategy cause left for me I think he's lucky if he happens to win this bet. Now back to our main point of discussion which is on the second image, out of 17 games, 15 played with just two left and based on the date in the image I think Austin FC won Los Angeles Galaxy 2-0 making it the last game left, now if you were the bettor and was given a cashout of 12.4m out of 36m to be won would you rather be patient for the last game to conclude or you'll go with the cashout? Also note that if you cashout you are safe atleast you have made 11m plus extra cash and if you decide to wait it's either you lose or win 36m, what would you do?
10  Economy / Gambling discussion / Where would you prefer to watch your favorite team? on: April 14, 2024, 03:06:56 PM
 Some people would love to watch their favorite team at home with their family, some at a bar while their are others who would love to go to a viewing center. I come from a family where football is appreciated but currently they would prefer to go about their daily activities instead of joining me to watch our favorite team play. We all know how boring it could be watching football alone, their is this joy when you communicate and Analyze the game with people who have good knowledge about football so  sometimes instead being bored from watching live football alone at home, I would rather go to a bar or viewing center, the viewing center especially cause it's funny how different fans argue about sports and make fun of the rival teams at the sports viewing center. That is the fun of football asides the players playing on the pitch, the argument, discussion and expectations from various fans in a bar or viewing center makes it more entertaining and interesting.
 Let us keep this discussion going, where would you prefer to watch your favorite team?
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Previous ATH achieve before bull? on: February 26, 2024, 07:42:48 PM
Hey all have been hearing some people saying is bull run and some post over here have been saying we are not yet in bull run so I was mean to asked when exactly do we expect bull run if now is not yet the period. Then lastly does it mean we must achieved the previous ATH before we can say we have entered main bull run, since lots of people keeps saying bull run already started.
I was pushed to asked when exactly do expect the bull run?
Like I can see ETH and BNB doing very well..
12  Economy / Gambling discussion / While placing bet what comes your mind on: January 22, 2024, 11:16:11 AM
Yesterday was trying to place bet and during the process something in me keeps telling me to increase your wager do you know if you would hit something you never won before.. I was like is this how other people are being controlled by gambling or is it how it works? I said, no wonder some people gamble and finishes their allocation for the week or month. This can even lead someone to also go borrow if this feeling is not killed and stop, you can also see that this attributes in gambling addiction.

However, have you had this feeling while gambling before be it offline casino and online casinos?
13  Other / Off-topic / Do you think gambling every day is better? on: January 09, 2024, 02:52:02 PM
There was a friend of mine who visited me a day after and he was saying gambling every day draws you more closer to winning.

I asked him how?

He said when you keep trying luck every day you stand the chance not to miss your luck of winning, he also made reference to few people around our locality who won outrageous Money within 31 Dec to 1 January 2024, asking if I knew how often those people keep trying for them to have the winning they got.

I said No! He then say the more you space the more I missed my chances of winning but what I came to understand is that, the more anyone keeps trying the slimmer such persons turns into gambling addiction becus such person will always want to gamble regularly stirring up some forms of pressure to himself. When there is no money to gamble such person don't mind going extramile to source for funds since he has install this mentality of regularly gambling without giving break.

My question is do you think gambling every day is better? From his reasoning and points of narrations.
14  Economy / Gambling discussion / How often do you win? on: January 04, 2024, 05:02:08 PM
From rising topics and lots of risk advise and content that has been shared in this section is enough for many of us to start leaning and put them into practice. Hence I understand that many people here often win or maybe twice a week or once a week maybe could be monthly, and I also believe that there are people who hardly make winning they can gamble for weeks and months without any possibility of winning at this point why don't we share our games.

Maybe anyone can decide to share his game and let those interested to should pick and play on their favorite gambling site, with this help we all can win together, the most important thing should be that everyone understand the gambling rules and for that can only bet with whatever they can afford to lose. If any game is posted by any reputable user here that does not mean that such person is 100% correct and hence shouldn't go bet with their entire life savings, the point is we should be able to carry this mindset that whatever may happen at the point of betting we might win or lose.

I don't know if such thread already existing or maybe, have been locked due to issues that was on grounds or could be that the thread is no longer effective if any please ref me then I can put this on lock as well then I will be more active over there.
15  Economy / Gambling discussion / Shared games helped you before? on: January 03, 2024, 08:25:04 PM
Just as the title said I won't be consuming much of your time this evening and is just something I will like us to have a cool discussion, last year which is about months ago and there (is) was a friend of mine who is dawn routed in games prediction and has no money to be placing much bet on those game, so what he always does is call me and asked me to staked whatever amount I am pleased to stake with maybe if I win I should send whatever my mind tells me to do. Although he didn't request any specific percentage if the game plays since he fully understood the terms of gambling just as we all says that gambling is a luck base game or chance base game which you and I can't detects what the outcome would be.

Okay, I started developing interest by staking some of his games he do shared about 4 to 8 consecutive time I keep trying his games but didn't work out, like no winning has been made and he kept saying I should try last more. It was then I got weird over his failing games and stopped after that day he called me and said someone won about NGN 60,000,000 which about $50,000 with a bet of $2. Some times I began to wonder whether is my fault for not keep following him or what maybe who know what could have happened if that kept having patient to play his predicted games.

Just say let me bring this here to see how many of you have been in such situation where you have been trying for long and the day you decided not to try luck the winning will come just like a magic. Have you experience that before?
16  Economy / Gambling discussion / Do you care about what people say about you gambling? on: January 02, 2024, 08:40:43 PM
Greetings everyone and happy new year all!

Okay, today I was actually out for a little business and it happens that I almost spent all my time wasted without me even having a smooth deal, but along the line I have few games that I have placed a bet and was wanting to view my games from my phone since gambling is now mobile, what I meant by mobile is that you can access your account at any place provided that you have an internet connectivity you will login to monitor your matches.

So when I logged in, someone close to me easily peep from my left hand side and noticed that I just opened my account monitoring my games, at this point what he said is "ahh you don join dem"? Meaning you have also belong to the groups of people that gambles?

On a lighter note, I just smile and asked him if there is anything wrong while gambling or while monitoring my games and he said nothing but just that few people he knew that are gambling almost turned useless.

This now triggered me to come ask here whether you cares about what people says or sees you as when gambling, I know there are people who don't know you from time or who doesn't believe that you are a gambler and if it happens that you came across such people and their reaction towards you goes other way round would you care about it or you just totally ignore them?

Let's discuss amicably

18  Economy / Gambling discussion / How do you manage greed to place your bet on: October 03, 2023, 09:19:46 AM
For much long now I have never place bet with a higher amount but there was a bet i placed few days ago and i was tempted to increase my wager from what it should be before, Let say i often gamble with at least 200 Naira and maximum is 2,000 for a multiple bets But recently something came into me to start increasing my wager above my limits due to a game that was predicts to me it gives me all possibilities that I could cash out big time. This now made me to come here to asked how do you control your greed with your bet amount, do you go ahead placing the bet as your minds speaks or do only maintain to your limits whether it plays or not doesn't matter.

Again why do you regret after putting smaller amounts and it happens the games went as planned and starts blaming yourself for not increasing your bet amount, maybe by now you could have cashed out big time. How do you control this thought over your ends do you keep to your regulations of always placing bets with some limits or you place bet according to your mind and regrets after losing that amount for not following your limits?

Lets discuss wisely and if something related to this post please point it out.. Maybe would devote time to study what has been written over there.
