1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is the Nigeria Central bank confusing its citizens? on: March 23, 2021, 08:07:48 AM
Earlier last month, there has been an uproar from many about Nigeria's Central bank on its decision on cryptocurrency among Nigerian citizens. This led to panic among cryptocurrency investors in Nigeria, as the CBN directed that trader's accounts in Nigerian banks should be closed.

In a recent report released on March 22nd, the CBN says they are not discouraging citizens from trading or making use of Bitcoin. But it only told the banks to close accounts that had traded cryptocurrency

https://www.coindesk.com/nigeria-central-bank-bitcoin

If the citizens are free to trade cryptocurrencies, how will it be possible without making a transaction to or with their local banks? Of course, it might be possible with the P2p transaction. But what is the need of encouraging them, when you will still close their accounts?

Now my question is, why all this confusion? Isn’t the CBN confusing Nigerian crypto traders?
I feel they didn’t think this through before releasing their ban statement in February with their wild claims.

If you haven't heard; Stephen Hawkings is dead.
Well, this is not a usually post of bitcoin discussion but I felt he deserve a tribute from we bitcoin lovers and scientist in this forum. Though, he might not have contributed much
to bitcoin but he developed new software within the bitcoin and crypto trading market (algorithm called hawkcode) with the potential to disrupt the bitcoin market. And this was in the aim for distribution of wealth among the regular people; which in my opinion is fair.

Well, we lost a legend. Show your respect and informations on anyway he has supported bitcoin or not.
 My favorite quote from him;


Note; To the moderators,  I don't know if this is the right section to post this. Feel free to move it.

4  Other / Serious discussion / Hacker returns $17M worth of stolen Ethereum on: March 02, 2018, 07:03:53 AM
I saw on a news here; http://bitcoinist.com/hacker-returns-17m-worth-of-stolen-ethereum/#  how a hacker returned $17m worth of Ethereum which was stolen from CoinDash (a tool aiming to help users manage, track and analyze their crypto assets).
I have been thinking what moved him to return the coins because he wasn't tracked for the Ethereum he stole.
Guys, what's your take on this? What do you think that stirred his emotions to return the coins? Probably this could be used on other hackers to return stolen coins too.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Taiwan not banning ICO like China on: October 06, 2017, 10:44:06 AM
Its official, Taiwan is now following the foot step of Japan by Encouraging cryptocurrencies.
Saw this on the news; as stated byJason Hsu, a congressman from Taiwan’s

"Just because China and South Korea are banning, doesn’t mean that Taiwan should follow suit – there is a huge opportunity for growth in the future. We should emulate Japan, where they treat cryptocurrency as a highly regulated, highly monitored industry like securities."

Guys, What's your opinion on this?
Will this changes really boost the economy of Taiwan as they have stated?
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is China the core up holder of Bitcoin? on: September 07, 2017, 03:02:55 PM
Hey guys,
On Tuesday, I hard on the news that 'Bitcoin fell by another $300 on Tuesday after the fallout of a Chinese ban on cryptocurrency crowdfunding ' .
So I have been thinking, is China the core up holder of Bitcoin? If they totally ban bitcoin, will the price of bitcoin totally reduce?
