1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Why haven't governments illegalized bitcoin transactions? on: August 27, 2019, 10:33:11 PM
I have heard some stories about making bitcoin transactions illegal. It's all been a humor and I don't think any government have officially made bitcoin transactions illegal. Why is that?
Many governments are trying to regulate bitcoin, control exchanges and force people to be authorized. But I am sure government wish bitcoin was not created and there was no trouble of regulating bitcoin. They  prefer their fiat to any other currency.
Why no government have made bitcoin transactions illegal?
I think they want to avoid creating an underground market.They don't want bitcoin to be traded like Alcohol and drugs. They have to accept bitcoin as they cannot stop a decentralized network and now they can only try to regulate it. Do you agree with me? Is there any other things have caused governments to not make bitcoin illegal?
2  Other / Meta / Bitcointalk deleted accounts on: August 25, 2019, 09:22:40 AM
As far as I know, it's impossible to delete accounts. But there are many accounts that have been deleted.
Start from user ID 1, change it to bigger ones and see how many accounts have been deleted.
I am curious to know who had been the owner of the account with user ID "2".  This account is even older than Satoshi's account and it is already removed.
Now there are many missed user IDs. Why have they been deleted?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Pundi X Staking and Excluded Countries on: August 22, 2019, 07:05:20 PM
Pundi X holders can stake their tokens to receive f(x) tokens before the launch of mainnet.  

Here is the list of the countries excluded form staking.
Afghanistan, Albania, Belarus, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Burundi, Central African Republic, China, Cote dí Ivoire, Cuba, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Malaysia, Myanmar, North Korea, Republic of Macedonia, Serbia, Somalia, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Syria, Thailand, Trinidad & Tobago, Tunisia, Uganda, Ukraine, United States, Venezuela, Yemen and Zimbabwe

I was curious to know the percentage of people around the world that are not eligible to have f(x)

Data have been taken from

Afghanistan: 0.48% ,  Albania:  0.04% , Belarus: 0.12% , Bosnia & Herzegovina: 0.05% , Burundi: 0.15% , Central African Republic: 0.06% , China: 18.41% , Cote dí Ivoire: 0.33% , Cuba: 0.15% , Democratic Republic of the Congo: 1.12% , Ethiopia: 1.43% , Guinea: 0.17% , Guinea-Bissau: 0.03% , Iran: 1.07%, Iraq:  0.52% , Lebanon:  0.08% , Liberia: 0.06% , Libya:  0.09% , Malaysia: 0.42% , Myanmar: 0.70% , North Korea: 0.33% , Republic of Macedonia: 0.03 % , Serbia: 0.11% , Somalia: 0.20% , South Sudan: 0.17% , Sri Lanka: 0.27% , Sudan: 0.55% , Syria: 0.24%, Thailand: 0.90% , Trinidad & Tobago: 0.02% , Tunisia: 0.15% , Uganda: 0.59% , Ukraine: 0.57% , United States: 4.27% , Venezuela: 0.42% , Yemen: 0.38% , Zimbabwe: 0.22%

Summing percentages, 34.9% of the people around world are ineligible to stake their tokens. These people have payed for their tokens same as 65.1% that are eligible?
Is this fair?
Do you really think this is a cryptocurrency? People should be able to use cryptocurrencies neglecting their nationality. Otherwise that's not a cryptocurrency.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Why hasn't any altcoin replaced bitcoin? on: August 22, 2019, 06:14:09 PM
I think bitcoin has been one of the biggest innovations of the human in the past years. Many altcoins have been created after bitcoin. But none of  them have been successful as bitcoin is. Why is that?
Why no altcoin can replace bticoin?
Every new thing and every technology is usually replaced by a newer one as the world is always developing.

The first television built was mechanical, then electronic television were invented, then colour televisions, digital, 3D, ....
The first automobiles invented were steam-powered wheeled vehicles, then electric automobiles appeared. Now we have autonomous cars. Now we have Tesla model S. Now we have Lamborghini.
All of us know about the developments made in mobile phones.

Every thing is being developed. Every device is finally replaced by a newer one. Why no altcoin has replaced bitcoin till now? Do you think it will happen in future?
I personally think people will trust what Satoshi has created more than altcoins till many years later.
Altcoins are created to make the developers rich. But bitcoin is different. Bitcoin was created in favor of us. So, no altcoin can be trusted as bitcoin.

What do you think?
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Won't be Venus a controlled currency? on: August 19, 2019, 08:30:50 PM
Binance is going to reveal a new stable coin '"Venus"
As I read on Cointelegraph, Binance has said that they are seeking partnerships with governments.
So, I guess they are trying to create a coin which is in favor of Governments. Transaction will be likely controlled by governments and all traders will be traced.
Governments opposed the idea of Facebook for Libra and now Binance has said they will talk with governments.
What do you think?
Don't you think we will have a controlled currency?
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Does bitcoin need to be a currency? on: August 18, 2019, 03:11:21 PM
Hi, I created a thread two days ago. Here is the link.
I discussed about the effect of BAKKT on future of bitcoin and one of my concerns was how bitcoin is treated by BAKKT as an investment and store of value.
In some of replies I got, people believe that there is no problem if bitcoin remains an investment forever and won't be a currency.
What do you think? What will happen if bitcoin won't be a currency and it remains an investments like it is today?
I personally believe that people now thinks that bitcoin is a good investment because they believe that bitcoin will be a currency. In other words, bitcoin is the future currency. In my opinion, if bitcoin is not supposed to be a currency, it cannot survive forever as an investment. Why should people invest in something that has not any benefit?
What do you think?

7  Economy / Speculation / How will BAKKT affect future of bitcoin? on: August 16, 2019, 09:36:28 PM
"Bakkt has announced the coming launch of its much-anticipated platform for daily and monthly futures in the United States in a blog post on Aug. 16. Having received approval from the necessary regulators, the launch is scheduled for Sept. 23. "

The news is generally positive. There is no doubt it can cause many new investors to be attracted to bitcoin. We see this news affected the price once it was published. It caused the price to rise about 4% and now it is traded at about 10,400 dollar.
Besides this positive effect, there are some things worry me. I would like to know your opinions.

1. Third parties involvement: I personally prefer bitcoin to be sent and received peer to peer directly between wallets without involvement of third parties.
2. Bitcoin should be a currency: We all know that bitcoin has been created to be a currency. But these days people look at it as an investment. BAKKT will keep us far away from the main purpose of bitcoin.
3. Regulations: BAKKT had been in negotiations with United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission. So, it will likely cause more regulations to appear.

What do you think?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / IEOs are more safe. But there are still problems that must be solved. on: July 20, 2019, 02:58:30 PM
Buying the tokens on exchanges seems to be more safe than buying them on ICOs websites.
But there are still some problems:
1. Using IEOs instead of ICOs, we are adding a 3rd party than can control what we buy. This is in contradiction with the main purpose of cryotocurrencies which is centralization (edit: decentralization)
2. The big bonuses that big investors are still giving buying the tokens directly from the team and cause big price decrease
3. KYC that is still implementing. The only thing that has changed is that we are giving our documents to the exchange instead of the team ( In my opinion KYC should be completely eliminated or a new safe method which I have no idea about that should be implemented)
4. Exchanges might get money and do not pay attention to healthy of the project like what they do for listing the tokens

What do you guys think?
What should be done to have safer fundraising? Assume that you are making some rules. Just try to preserve the decentralization as much as possible.  
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / There is no doubt that bitcioin will be replaced by another cryptocurrency on: May 03, 2018, 02:31:29 PM
I had previously doubted that Bitcoin would be replaced by another currency. But my mind has changed. Because I see there are many other cryptocurrencies that the developers are trying hard to solve the problems in cryptocurrencies.  What about bitcoin? We don't know who are the developers and no effort is being made to develop it.
If you don't try hard, your rivals will win. Bitcoin's rivals will win too.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Putin, Trump on: August 16, 2017, 08:29:47 PM

There are two coins listed in coinmarketcap named ''TrumpCoin'' and ''President Trump''. There are also coins named ''Putin Coin'' and ''Putin Classic''

Is there any relation between these coins and Presidents of United States and Russia? If so, can the price be affected by their countries politics?
Or just someone is interested in them and has created these coins?
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Earning with bounties campaigns on: August 12, 2017, 07:43:39 PM

How many campaigns have you joined?
How much time do you spend?
How much is your income?
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Unknown market capitalization on: July 01, 2017, 09:22:38 PM

Should we avoid them?
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Sending Ethereum Token on: June 28, 2017, 02:17:40 PM
I want to send some RouletteTokens (RLT) from livecoin to myetherwallet. But there is no address for RouletteTokens in myetherwallet. Is it right that I should use ETH address? My concern is losing my fund.

Another question:
I heard somewhere I should have some Ethereum in myetherwallet before sending any token to that. Is it right? If yes why? and how much is required?
