1  Economy / Gambling discussion / Another insane win!! $ 1B mega million jackpot on: January 23, 2021, 06:27:33 PM
In the last few weeks Americans have been very lucky in the lottery, this time there is a man who won $ 1 billion dollars from the mega million lotteries.  btw, I have tried playing mega billions several times at (cut this part) but never had any luck.  for unclear reasons, the man's identity is still a secret.  

Quote
The winner's identity has not been revealed, but, per state lottery rules, they must come forward to claim their winnings.

Quote
The winner will have two options to collect the record prize, the lottery said in a statement: "The first is an escalating annuity that offers an initial payment, then annual payments for 29 years. The player also may select a one-time cash payment of about $739 million. If a player selects the cash option, they will receive about $530 million after tax withholdings."

the tax cut was huge but I sure it certainly wouldn't piss him off.  has anyone ever tried to play this and do you lucky??

2  Economy / Economics / New US presidents are privacy-friendly? on: January 21, 2021, 06:38:29 PM
The US is one of the countries with the largest crypto market in the world.  we all know that since the previous president's leadership, the US is very unfriendly to privacy, with the freezing of rules from the previous rule makers as if it is giving fresh breath to businessman and crypto traders. 

Quote
President Joe Biden has frozen all federal regulatory proposals, including former Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin's proposed rules on self-hosted crypto wallets, until his new administration can review them.

it was written that the new presidential administration will conduct a "review" of the previous policy proposal.  Do you think the new US government has a chance not to implement that rules?

3  Economy / Gambling discussion / Toronto women win jackpot lottery on: January 20, 2021, 10:51:44 AM
quite surprised to hear the amount she won was $60 million.  in my country, this kind of money is enough to buy hundreds of mansions.  in the midst of this "PANDEMIC", their win is a great gift, but what amazed me was that they (her and her husband) always playing the same numbers for 20 years.

Quote
After playing the same lottery numbers for 20 years that came to her husband in a dream, a 57-year-old Toronto woman is $60 million richer.

Do any of you play the same trick as their (playing the same number always)??

4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / again a Bitcoin millionaire who forgot his password on: January 12, 2021, 06:37:59 PM
Quote
German-born programmer Stefan Thomas told the Times he forgot the password to IronKey, an secure flash drive has access to 7,002 Bitcoin - $220 million worth. IronKey gives users 10 guesses for their passwords before seizing its contents.
"I would just lay in bed and think about it," Thomas told the New York Times Nathaniel Popper. "Then I would go to the computer with some new strategy, and it wouldn't work, and I would be desperate again."

quite surprised by this news because his Bitcoin trapped in his hardware wallet is very much.  Don't underestimate your private key and password, if you haven't prepared the best place (easy to remember and reach) to store your private key and password then do it right now..

5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Example > Another odd opinion about Bitcoin on: December 20, 2020, 05:45:36 PM
Bitcoin has become increasingly in the discussion, since Bitcoin touched and even passed ATH ($ 20k, Jan 2018) a few days ago, but some funny opinions emerged.  as expressed by Mark Andrew Skousen (an American economist)..


he did not even know (or maybe wanting to fool the audience) that currently selling or buying Bitcoin can be done with a Smartphone (not only a computer) as long as it is connected to the internet "LOL"..

speaking in front of an audience shouldn't look stupid, one can dislike Bitcoin and believe only in physical coins like gold or silver but don't throw away Logic and the fact that Bitcoin is far more profitable than gold or silver..


you can freely drop the image here if you find someone odd opinion about Bitcoin..

Political conditions in various countries are not perfect..  I personally believe in the "Utopian Socialist" ideology.  I believe that we should live without worrying anymore about health and education costs, which are what the people most need..

we are here just discussing and getting to know each other better about each other's ideology (in your own opinion) -->
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / The best platforms for writers to generate Altcoins on: September 25, 2020, 02:28:05 PM
I want to share experience how to do I get a few Altcoins (Bch, Ethereum, and others) from making some articles and proven to pay into my wallet, Not bad for giving you some money in the middle of this "PANDEMIC"..  currently, only 2 good platforms are proven to pay me, that is;

- Read.Cash
Code:
https://read.cash
Quote
"read.cash is a blogging platform where you get paid in bch for your blogging"

you can try writing here and get paid bitcoin cash.  The withdrawal is very fast, it doesn't take long, you can even withdraw your funds with a very small amount ($0.5) and you can do (withdrawal) at any time..

- Publish0x
Code:
https://www.publish0x.com
Quote
"Publish0x is a unique combination between the blogging platform and the new era (cryptocurrency), Publish0x community's growth is increasing because this platform is unique in that the authors will be rewarded or an award for their interesting posts on various topics in discussing the latest cryptocurrency updates this time"
currently, publish0x is one of the best platforms to make money, from each of your writes, you are paid with BAT, LRC, and ETH (update current payments). However, you cannot withdraw your funds at any time, there is a minimum amount that you must achieve and will be paid on a certain date..


in theory, writing articles is easy, you only need to know the opening words, content, and conclusions but in fact, writing interesting articles is difficult. difficult here doesn't mean you can't master it, you just have to be patient and keep looking for references on how to write good articles (which are comfortable for you).  good luck..

*notice: You can also add/share what platforms are bringing you real-time results below
9  Economy / Economics / Sales of wedding rings are increasing on: September 19, 2020, 05:43:21 AM
Quote
- Both supply and demand for diamond engagement rings has been on the rise during the pandemic, according to resale companies like luxury consignment site The RealReal.
- Experts say this is because the close-quarters of quarantining has prompted some married couples to call it quits, while pushing others to deepen their commitment.
- According to an analysis conducted by Legal Templates — a company that allows users to create and track legal documents — the number of couples seeking divorce between March to June increased by 34% from the same period in 2019.
- "Quarantine has meant make-or-break for many relationships," said Trish Stevens, The RealReal's director of fine watches and jewelry. "While we're seeing an influx of people purchasing engagement rings, we're also seeing more people consign them."

drastic changes (economy, health & psychology) occur in almost all countries because of this "PANDEMIC", and of course those who are unable to deal with it will think short.  for those who are married you must believe that this difficulty will end and the economy will recover, don't because of your emotions for a moment you have to divorce and forget about the people who have fought with you and you really love..

My wife and I continue to communicate and we trust each other that this will end, I hope all my friends here are not divorced from their partners during this "PANDEMIC" period. 🍻

12  Economy / Gambling discussion / "NEW NORMAL" Betting on: June 05, 2020, 06:08:16 PM
The certainty of the vaccine is still gray.. we can't wait until the vaccine is found in order to start a sports match.  I see some countries have relaxed "LOCKDOWN" because it is no longer effective and submitted "NEW NORMAL".  I read that the English league will start again, this is the best news;

Quote

billions of dollars have been lost (betting, broadcasting rights, tickets, and merchandises) because sporting events have been postponed waiting for vaccines to appear. sports matches without spectators must be done (to support "NEW NORMAL" & and slow the spread of COVID-19)..

I was very bored watching the old football match and then repeated so on and so on sports TV stations Cheesy.  so that the "stay at home" program is effective, entertainment (sports matches) must be continued..

I'm tired of looking for references on YouTube and Google about which is the best between DSLR and MIRRORLESS, please give me advice based on your experience (if you've ever done live streaming on YouTube) what camera is suitable for live streaming above 1 hour, heat resistance and the price at under $ 400!!

16  Other / Politics & Society / Bill Gates & WHO Vs Trump.. on: April 18, 2020, 03:09:38 PM
inspired by the topic created by @mindrust

for the first time, I didn't like the status created by Bill Gates.. Bill Gates is my inspiration, but for the first time he was very disappointing


this status makes the tweet full of allusions to Bill->






I am not Donald Trump's FANS but for this case, I fully support Trump's plan to stop funding against "WHO"

the world health organization must be taught a lesson because the funds they receive are not small while their performance is very poor...

p.s: My support for Trump is pure because I am concerned about the number of co-19 infected in the US

18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Gambling Business That Survives when a Crisis on: March 31, 2020, 06:03:16 PM
when a crisis occurs whether it is due to Pandemic or War then automatically a country will do "LOCKDOWN" which means locking all activities related to crowd interaction such as casinos and sports matches..

now "PANDEMIC COVID-19" is making huge losses, even The big teams have to cut their players' salaries to cover the costs the Team has to bear. The future nobody knows and the possibility of a crisis like this will happen in the future is very large.

For entrepreneurs who want to start a gambling business or gambling players who want to continue playing gambling, this is a list that can be an example of gambling that is not interrupted in times of crisis;

  • CASINO ONLINE / LIVE
    Many offline casinos are closed as now so playing online casino is the best choice..  You can get a reference for example or type of game HERE
  • E-SPORT
    every year E-Sport enthusiasts continue to rise even to the match at the Olympics, many predictions say that the E-SPORT market in the future is very large, the profit generated can be billions of dollars.  E-Sport does not need a big place and spectators, even players can do matches at home..  You can get a reference for example or type of game HERE
  • LOTTERY
    This is one of the old types of gambling, although there are currently several lottery providers that have temporarily closed their services, but in fact the Lottery market is very large and can still survive if creative and innovative service providers for example by adopting crypto currencies.

*The OP is very open to suggestions, if there is another type of game that you know is very good so that in the future we gamblers can still play even in the 'LOCKDOWN' state..



19  Other / Serious discussion / The Real Theory about the Coronavirus?? on: March 28, 2020, 07:00:06 PM
previously I found this in one of the posts of a health expert (sorry I didn't include the name + link)


so far we know that the country most ready to deal with the coronavirus is China and this is what causes the outside world to think and assume that they (China) have had plans for Covid-19 from the start.

the article above is the result of a study of a group of researchers in 2007, I personally am not too sure whether this article really came from the study or the way a person or a group to calm panic because confidence in China is reduced

until now the actual theory about the origin of the covid-19 virus is still confusing and The following is speculation about the origin of Covid-19 or better known as the coronavirus;

- Bat Soup Causes Coronavirus
- Coronavirus intentionally spread by the Chinese regime (biological weapons)
- Coronavirus originated from leakage of laboratories in Wuhan


some researchers say that the drug from the coronavirus can never be found as was the case before it namely Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) & H5N1 influenza virus.  viruses or bacteria can only be killed by disinfecting the ones that actually kill germs.  this is the reason why we are all nowadays in almost all over the world, it is recommended to keep our distance or what is called "Social Distancing"

in the future we will not hear news about the discovery of a cure for coronavirus sufferers, coronavirus will only die when our immune fight..

we might not know about the true origin of covid-19..  for now, the best way we can only do is maintain social distance even in the family, wash hands with soap, and disinfect our clothes and home environment

*Stop the spread of Covid-19

WHEN IS RAMADAN?
Ramadan 2020 is expected to begin on Thursday evening, 23rd April, 2020 (according to Saudi Arabia) and will end on Saturday, 23rd May, 2020. The exact timing is based on the sighting of the Moon.
Quote
WHAT IS RAMADAN?
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is considered a holy month that honors the time when Allah, via the angel Gabriel, revealed the first verses of the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam, to a caravan trader named Muhammad.

Beginning at puberty, all Muslims (with certain exceptions, such as if one is ill, traveling, pregnant, elderly, etc.) take part in the month-long sunrise-to-sunset fast that is the hallmark of Ramadan. Muslims believe that fasting cleanses the body, and the practice reminds them of the suffering of the poor.

Eating and drinking (including water) is prohibited from sunrise to sunset, and the day’s abstinence is offset by a pre-dawn meal called sehri and a nightly meal known as iftar. For iftar, many traditionally break the fast by first eating dates, as the Prophet Muhammad is believed to have done to break his fast. Foods traditionally served at iftar vary; one such dish is the Kurdish Hot-and-Spicy Red-Lentil Soup. Food is often shared with a poor family during Ramadan.

At the end of the 29- or 30-day fast (depending on the length of the lunar cycle) is Eid al-Fitr (Festival of Breaking the Fast), when there is much feasting and celebration.
Source: https://www.almanac.com/content/when-start-ramadan

currently Muslims around the world number around 1.8 billion people https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muslim_world and the Covid-19 vaccine, or what we know as the Coronavirus that we know attacks the immune system, has not yet been discovered.

when Muslims do fasting in the month of Ramadan then automatically their immune system decreases, it is certain that those who fast will be more susceptible to disease, especially Covid-19.

Muslims, of course, is faced with the choice of fasting or not, but I think these conditions will cause tremendous economic turmoil, do you agree with this?

I hope you all prepare for all the worst possibilities that will occur over the next 3 months
