1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Iran to cut electricity to licenced Miners on: June 20, 2022, 11:36:21 PM
Iran have been on the support of cryptocurrency mining for a long. Recently it stopped the operation of thousands of cryptocurrency miners running without proper registration. This illegal usage of electricity is identified and further 118 cryptocurrency mining farms were given with licence. Now considering the summer and the need for more electricity the miners supply were cut. According to data collected by Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF) Iran contributed 4.5% of Bitcoin mining during the May month last year and this dropped down to 0.12% January 2022. Will this have any impact over the price drop of bitcoin.

2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Computer Scientists say Crypto Industry is Misleading??? on: June 01, 2022, 11:40:41 PM
According to few popular computer scientists the crypto industry is misleading the public about blockchain technology.
The list were has 26 computer, Harvard lecturer Bruce Schneier, Microsoft engineer Miguel de Icaza and Google Cloud’s principal engineer Kelsey Hightower were few among them. This team of Computer Scientists have given a letter to the US Officials.

These Computer Scientists have given few statements on cryptocurrency and Blockchain technology.

  • "The claims that the blockchain advocates make are not true. It’s not secure, it’s not decentralized. Any system where you forget your password and you lose your life savings is not a safe system.”
  • “We urge you to resist pressure from digital asset industry financiers, lobbyists and boosters to create a regulatory safe haven for these risky, flawed and unproven digital financial instruments"
  • "Crypto-assets have been the vehicle for unsound and highly volatile speculative investment schemes that are being actively promoted to retail investors who may be unable to understand their nature and risk.”
  • The computational power behind blockchain is the equivalent of what one could do in a centralized way with a $100 computer.
  • “We’re essentially wasting millions of dollars worth of equipment because we’ve decided that we don’t trust the banking system.”

3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Any unexpected incidents - Bitcoin on: April 22, 2022, 12:59:22 PM

During the start of the year one of my friend who is running a travel service gave a table calendar. I just had it, and suddenly while looking for the date saw the image of bitcoin being mentioned in the calendar. This is something unexpected and it isn't a big thing, because the editor of the calendar might've added it. However slowly bitcoin is getting displayed here and there without reason. Does this intend people to know what is it.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The Bitcoin Family on: March 02, 2022, 11:46:56 PM

Most of the users here could've known about this person Didi Taihuttu, father and husband of the bitcoin family. Didi Taihuttu went all-in on Bitcoin in 2016 when there is not much of attention towards cryptocurrency. He sold his and his family’s possessions, and camped in the Netherlands refugees campaign. In an interview he mentioned

“I don’t have any cars, motorbikes, nothing. And I’m happier than ever. And she [Taihuttu's wife] agrees! At that moment, we decide to break that chain and lead by example for the kids.”

Life is about accumulating happiness, “instead of accumulating wealth.” Hence, the Bitcoin Family was born. The three daughters “only have Bitcoin, not bank accounts,” while the parents have never looked back on their former lives.

This is something big to be done during those days. He have done it with such a courage and now he is successful out of the same. The true value of holding and believing in bitcoin can be understood through his life.

He have lived the bitcoin lifestyle. Living only with bitcoin isn't an easy thing and he have done it when there is not much of acceptance along with his wife and three daughters. He mentions it as something a nomadic style living. Taihuttu cites “six families” who have since sold all their possessions to enjoy the Bitcoin lifestyle.

What a man, the family have been doing charity with the 40% made through his cryptocurrency trading, affiliates and all other sources. Initially they've built a school in Mexico, an orphanage in Venezuela. Life changing moments through bitcoin. There is risk, but there is life and Didi Taihuttu and his family have proven it to the world.

5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / BlockChain and Bitcoin on: January 14, 2022, 06:24:30 AM
I always see people having misunderstanding about blockchain and bitcoin. To make it easy understandable I've tried making a tabulation from my understanding about Bitcoin and BlockChain.

I made a tabulation, but that doesn't look good. So I've took a snapshot and has added it here.

Thank You
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / A big start in 2021 on: January 11, 2021, 11:32:45 PM
For all the Bitcoiners 2021 gave a good and a big start with its growth. From the end of the year 2020 the growth got initiated, and the same got followed by the year 2021.

Here it was about a student and a redditer BitcoinHolderThankU who have got back his wallet recovered after 9 years. The earning he made out of watching videos, taking surveys and other stuffs during those days for the purpose of gaming with the currency have made him fortune. The wallet was found with 127 bitcoin and he has sold everything after finding the private key from his old computer. The net value for which he has sold is $4.2m and if he has kept hold for another few weeks he could've got more $1m.

Is he lucky, and this is the best start for a person in 2021 Smiley

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Adding your coin to on: May 11, 2014, 12:03:18 AM

Hi there!

We often get questions "Can you add our coin?", "Did you see this coin?".

So thats why we have set up a donation page:

These donations will be used for:

  • Adding your coin
  • Buffers, we have stocks, but some coins give/donate buffers to make sure we can send the coins immediately to the customer.
  • Lower handling fee's.
  • Give-aways, prices, 1-click-receive
  • Development support

The reason why we have set this up is because we want to know how badly the community wants a coin. Unfortunately we cannot add every coin on the market because the pump and dump coins.

So we want to let the community make the decision. Donations can be as low as you want.

Is your coin not on this list? Please notice them in this topic and we will add them to the vote list.

All tips and critics are welcome!

Kindly regards,

K.Rokven - CEO
