1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Would You Buy This? on: February 05, 2018, 06:33:47 AM
2  Economy / Speculation / Looking for Advice on Making an Investment on: September 12, 2017, 11:25:28 AM
Hello everyone!

One of my friends has just entered the crypto world and wants to invest. He is able to arrange 2000 USD in the last week of October and he is seeking an advice on where to put that money. I am tempted to advise him to put 50% in BTC and 50% in ETH. However I would like a second opinion on same. Any recommendations?

(Just so that everyone knows, my/your role here is to only show him potential good coins. The final decision to do his own R&D and making final choices is his own liability and me/you nowhere to be blamed. Think of it as an introduction for a newbie.)

PS: Edited for clarity.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Using Dark Net Markets as Coin Mixers? on: August 03, 2017, 12:53:23 PM
I was just reading through the news of BitMixer.io shutting down their business.
While there are other alternatives, I was wondering what stops anyone from using a dark market (such as now-defunct AlphaBay) to mix their coins?

Using such markets over other alternatives will surely provide some benefits:
- Traditional mixers such as bitmixer.io have high fees
- We can use exchanges like Poloniex to mix coins but they require KYC for high volume deposit/withdrawals. Moreover there are chances they'll blacklist any addresses associated with hack/ransom attacks and won't accept coins from such address.
- Traditional exchanges can also have cooperative relationship with governments which can expose you

Dark nets being TOR-based services, once can just deposit some BTC in their account and then withdraw after some time. Won't this be a safer way to mix coins which are associated with hacks/ransom attacks?
