Even if some official social media account of any of the institution promote cryptocurrencies, giveaways or NFT, don't fall for it. By the time make a clear analysis and go further. Yesterday the British Army's Social media accounts were hacked and more scams were promoted. It is always good to stay safe as hackers are always in search of possible ways to scam common people.

2  Economy / Gambling discussion / Any changes experienced within body - Gambling??? on: May 19, 2022, 12:15:45 PM
Gambling have brought me big wins as well as drastic losses. If my entire statistics is calculated this used to be in loss. I've tried different plans to keep me away from Gambling, however I wasn't able to do it. In the beginning I never mind when I experience loss, because I was single and now I have a family. I used to gamble without fear.

In recent days whenever I get into gambling I used to experience some changes in my body. Particularly stomach pain and I myself found the difference while gambling and not gambling. When I wasn't gambling I never have such issues and I myself checked Google and diagnosed the below. Does anyone have similar experience. Atleast for my health I need to give up gambling.

Irritable bowel syndrome
Also called: IBS, spastic colon

People may experience:
Pain areas: in the abdomen
Pain types: can be recurrent in the abdomen
Gastrointestinal: change in bowel habits, constipation, diarrhoea, inability to empty bowels, indigestion, nausea, passing excessive amounts of gas, or urgent need to defecate
Abdominal: cramping or discomfort
Also common: anxiety, depression, discomfort, loss of appetite, or symptoms alleviated by defecation

3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Tesla used to power cryptocurrency mining. on: May 18, 2022, 11:19:47 AM
I don't know whether this is an old news or an recent incident. Today only I came across this and I find this a better way of green mining. But, in terms of affordability everyone can't depend or power their mining rigs using Tesla. Rather than serving as an influencer, Elon Musk could've thought in such a way as his customers.

Two Tesla owners have been using their cars to mine cryptocurrency, where one used his car to mine $800 per month. This is quite a good sum of money out of mining. Right now two of them were identified, and following this we can expect more Tesla owners follow this method.

4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Women's participation into cryptospace - Increased? on: May 07, 2022, 11:31:29 PM
In an article read about the increasing interest among the women's to get into the digital space and educate themselves. This in particular is much about the mom's and not the girls. They find this a place where they can able to invest and leave something to their kids. Most of these mom's were interested in teaching their kids about the developing technology and for that some are learning it. One of the mom mentioned
My whole point was, I want to educate myself. I lived in Seattle during the dot com bubble and I had no voice or power to do anything.

The majority of mom investors interviewed by NBC News claimed that they were interested in crypto as a way to “meaningfully change” the financial security of their families

More and More Moms Are Embracing Crypto to Help Their Families Get Richer
5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Hard earned money - Busted in seconds on: April 30, 2022, 01:59:56 AM
It was almost two months hard earned money. Got busted in few minutes. I don't know why I wasn't able to have me within the limits. Just started with a $3 bet, but it went upto $98 and ended with empty wallet. This is completely unlucky, because every bets were placed to roll above 20 which means the winning probability is quite high. Anyhow I wasn't in control and I didn't follow the rule gamble what you can afford to loss. It was a money saved to repay a debt. Now once again the interest needs to be paid so to manage the debt for some more time. Unlucky me  Sad Sad Sad

8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Everyone forgot April 5th...? on: April 07, 2022, 07:16:07 AM
Based on the information provided by Satoshi to signup for P2P foundation forum. Based on the data provided by him, past April 5th he had turned 47.

I don't know how far this information is true and to find the information surfed the internet and came across a reddit post in which the user have been keeping track of the change of age on the particular forum page. Finally during the year 2014 he have found an age change happening on 5th of April. This made him calculate the Date of Birth of Satoshi as 5th April 1975.

9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Trezor Customers Targetted....!!! on: April 03, 2022, 11:54:32 PM
Trezor owners  have been targeted with fake data breach emails, according to Twitter post.

Mailchimp have confirmed that their service has been compromised by an insider in order to send malicious links to cryptocurrency firms.

Users subscribed to newsletters powered by Mailchimp received a slew of fake notifications. Fraudsters, who were impersonating the Trezor team, warned that the cryptocurrency holdings of their potential victims could be stolen due to a massive security breach.
The bogus domain name featured Punycode characters, which made it possible for the hackers to add a veneer of legitimacy to the fake app.

According to Bleeping Computer, the scammers created a fraudulent version of Trezor Suite that is almost indistinguishable from the real one on the surface. To make potential victims drop their guard, the app even included a legitimate-looking warning, which urged users not to enter their recovery seed in the wake of the recent phishing attacks (unless the physical device instructs them to do so).

11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / CEX ruins the true value of Bitcoin on: March 26, 2022, 01:10:17 AM
At times due to the rules and regulations of certain countries, CEX used to ruin the value of bitcoin. This means these exchanges completely outlaw the reason for which people prefer bitcoin as well as the reason for which bitcoin is being innovated. Coinbase, one among the leading exchange in terms of volume have come up with requirements of recipient information for crypto transfers from users in Canada, Singapore and Japan.

  • For Canada the limit is $1000CAD, fow which it requires the recipient information. This new change comes to effect from April 4, and this change is with regards to the Canada's FINTRAC rules.
  • For Singapore users, for each and every transaction it requires the recipient information along with country of residence. This comes to effect from April 1, change is following the Singaporean regulations.
  • With Japan complete information of the recipient name, address and country of residence is a must. This is according to the English translation of rules established by the Japan Cryptocurrency Trading Association (JVCEA). This will take effect on April 1, said the coinbase.

We aren't compelled to make use of these exchanges, it is possible to use the non custodial wallets. However this Exchanges might turn to be similar service providers of banks in future while sticking to the rules and regulations.

A month got over on war between Ukraine and Russia. Here I would like to point out things that happened with bitcoin during this time period.

  • The market was moving around $39k and on the sudden invasion of Russian force into Ukraine the markets crashed close to $35k.
  • Coinbase paid a hacker $250k for saving a billions worth cryptocurrencies. If this has happened the market would've turned downwards further.
  • Western Nations decided to cut off Swift from Russia.

  • Sanctions made over Russia and this time US asks cryptocurrency exchanges to follow the same rules of sanctions. The same is being requested by the Ukraine Vice Prime Minister.

  • Visa and MasterCard stopped their services in Russia.
  • Women's Day event took place around the globe with different surveys detailed the increase of women into cryptocurrency.
  • Biden Signed the Crypto executive order which made the market progress to small extent.
  • A bitcoin address holding 489BTC got active after a 11.4 years.

13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Does mining gets affected? on: March 23, 2022, 03:06:33 AM
Kazakhstan law enforcement officers continue to crackdown all illegal mining firms operating around the country. Throughout the country more than 100 mining firms have been found and closed. Even the legally registered ones were closed. Throughout the country power blackouts and shortages were connected with the mining power consumption.

Power supply interruptions have shifted more mining firms relocate to other countries earlier before the crackdown of mining machines. Since last year Kazakhstan served as a hotspot for mining once after the legal shut of mining from China, now this has changed.

Will this make any big changes, because as of now everything is fine.
The crypto farm, located at a railway station is the latest. The farm was set up in a room on the premises of the Kundyzdy railway station.

Don't fall to these kind of fake emails. Non custodial wallets will never ask for KYC. So, if someone receive these kind of e-mails please stay away from it. This is kind of an attack to enter the wallet. Stay away and safeguard the holdings. A small mistake can lead to loss of funds which couldn't be recovered.

15  Other / Politics & Society / History of Money on: March 20, 2022, 07:19:13 AM
The evolution of money have taken different forms. In the early days people traded goods and services for what they needed. One having livestock will exchange its products in exchange for vegetables with the person who have been into cultivation. Apart from this people used to work on the livestock and agricultural farms for food. This practice have served as the building blocks for the present system.

Going through history it is possible to see different coins being used in different regions. The first round coins stamped with gods and emperors for authencity were created around 500 BC.

The first paper money was created in China in 700 to 800 A.D. China is the first country to use paper money. The lighter weight of paper money allowed for international trade. Same time it created problems and led to currency wars. Upon the same coins once again came into usage.

What is Currency Wars
When leaders of different countries attempt to devaluate their own currency there happens currency wars. This increases demand and helps stimulate their economy. Even in today's forex market this can be experienced. Currency Wars have negative consequences for the countries involved, including currency volatility.

Roman Empire started the first bank around 1800 B.C and these banks allowed deposits and provided loans. When the empire fall, the banks used to collapse. Later the banks turned to be more respectable and started provided loans and ran successfully. Further the first bank in the US got established back in 1791.

The Gold Standard got into usage by the year 1816. Gold was made the standard of value in the country of England. With this system each bank note is backed by certain amount of gold. Now money has taken the form of everything from the U.S. dollar to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.

The banking system further got its usage through credit and debit cards. Credit cards were first issued to the consumers during the year 1920s. Money with its different forms got used physically. With the boom of internet, everything started to happen on the go. However for every transaction the banks started to charge.

Digital Currency
In the 90s, digital currency tried and failed to get off the ground, but in the 2000s things have changed, allowing it to grow in popularity and in widespread use. Digital currency allows individuals to invest in potentially growing currencies and spend money in a way that’s more convenient. Finally the history have driven us towards the era of cryptocurrency which is going to be the future of money.

History of Money

Came across this article which has been posted 13 years back, and I don't know whether it has been edited. I was astonished to see discussion about bitcoin and cryptocurrencies added to the article during those days.

I'm not sure about the survey sample. Based on a survey conducted by Blockfi 33% of women are interested in cryptocurrencies. Among them 60% women gonna buy cryptocurrencies in the falling few months time. The same study in the previous year have resulted with a 29% and what we have got is growth.

Among surveyed, one out of four women already holds cryptocurrencies. Most of the women holds this for future and never sold it. The priority of these women were much into bitcoin, ethereum and dogecoin. Very few have invested on NFT and other cryptocurrencies. In the male dominated crypto industry slowly women are making their footprints. Women are much fond of holding and very little interest is being found on making roles in blockchain based firms.

Hope these kind of activities will be done much by different teams backing different cryptocurrencies.
