1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Iran keywords Google interest over time explode! on: January 09, 2020, 11:35:27 PM
About this topic, I'm a little bit amazed on the interest of Bitcoin Iran keyword when I tries to look up on it on google trends.



I'm pretty sure this is because on the current issue there.
And there's some rumor recently that the price of Bitcoin in Iran was something doubled or more than the original price of Bitcoin.

@Everyone, could this kind of event have a possible positive effect on the price of Bitcoin?

P.S. I am really sad for what happening in Iran now.

4  Economy / Gambling discussion / Simulation/Machine Learning Effects on Gambling on: December 22, 2019, 01:36:38 AM
I am a little bit curious about this because  my boss just told me last week that on their country, they have tools maybe software that predicts or simulate the horse racing game (not sure if this is an A.I.).
He said most of the people using that kind of tool/servce are winning a huge profits.
This thing is just like, you don't need to analyze or think anymore, you will just place your bet.

Here's the questions,
Is this really possible on gambling(any form)?
It is not illegal?
5  Other / Beginners & Help / [BEWARE] Bitmex Fake Email! on: November 03, 2019, 04:18:46 AM
After the recent issue of Bitmex which was the Mass email leak of its users I received a random email from this email address: info@bitmex-explained.com which is seems legit yet suspicious.
The content of the e-mail is all about the recent email privacy issue of Bitmex and it stated some instructions or guides how our account become safe.

I become curious when the e-mail suggested to create a new account on Bitmex with new email address. And they give a link to the register form of Bitmex with referral inside of the given link. Check the images below.

   

Those links in the instruction that talks about creating a new account consist of referral links when I tried to open those links.

So this kind of scammer/hacker maybe is just into commission on every account he/she can able to hook via his/her referral link? Hmmm. Since he is just spreading his referral links.

I already reported this to the support of Bitmex and  they told that they only have two official email addresses that they are using;
Quote
Please be aware of phishing attempts. Emails from BitMEX are sent from “support@bitmex.com” and “noreply@bitmex.com”. Please add these email addresses to your contacts list to ensure that these emails do not land in your spam folder. BitMEX will never ask for your password.

Please be aware everyone. I am still waiting for their reply since I already forwarded the e-mail that I received on that suspicious email address.
Also check the article published by Bitmex regarding the recent issue : Updated: Statement on the Email Privacy Issue Impacting Our Users

Any criteria for the art or rules?
Like it should be only done in any way like in digital or canvas using some paints or any drawing materials? If it should be done on canvas, does size matter on the canvas?..

In judging consensus, I will be substantially but not entirely influenced by the total amount of merit your art received.
Since the judging is not totally in merit based, I think it is much better to know what are the judging criterias for the art, like what should we consider or to be included in our art to get more points from the judges.(suggestion only)
7  Economy / Gambling discussion / Gambling risk is higher when we are on Bear Market? on: October 09, 2019, 01:24:16 PM
What's your thought about this?

I have a scenario for this topic:

John bought Bitcoins when at the price of $18,000 and decided it to HODL.
But after he bought some Bitcoin, the price is starting to decrease, from $18,000 to $10,000 and to $4,000.
So,he already lost his money for almost 50% and he decided to gamble his Bitcoins;

Here's the thing, if you are John and start to gamble, would you bet with high risk (betting with huge amount, betting in low chance of winning, etc)?

Since if it was me, I already lost a lot when I even bought those Bitcoins at $18,000 so the best thing I can do is to gamble it and earn more bitcoins to decrease my loss or breakeven it.

What can you say about this? Or maybe you already experienced this.
8  Economy / Gambling discussion / Gambling activities correlates with Bitcoin's price? on: October 08, 2019, 02:25:12 PM
I am little bit confused about this topic, especially in gambling websites that accept Bitcoins or any cryptocurrencies.

So, we can see more activities on gambling that uses Bitcoin when we are in bull market (price increasing)? And decreases the activities or gambling volumes when also the price of Bitcoin keeps dumping (bear season) ?

I don't know if (we) some normal gamblers would have idea about this or maybe some gambling sites would exactly know this based on their website traffic/bet activities.

10  Economy / Gambling discussion / Most of gamblers are rich or poor? on: September 17, 2019, 08:35:34 AM
The question on the title just pop on my mind.
Are they poor or rich?
Remember the famous line on gambling?
"Only gamble a money you afford to lose". With that line we are really thinking of losing, the risk is still there.

So, what do you think on most gamblers now? Are the majority gamblers are rich or poor?

HOW TO KNOW IF A PERSON IS POOR/RICH?

 - Now, it's now on you how you will judge a person if they are rich or poor, we have different criteria on how we judge/look on poor/rich people.
11  Economy / Gambling discussion / Online Cock Fighting on: September 16, 2019, 02:54:26 AM

Last week someone shared me gamble where you can bet on cock fighting online. But on this platform we only use our national currency to cash in will convert it credits where 1PHP : 1 credits.
It's just sad because they don't accept Bitcoin. I having hardtime to cash in/cash out by going to any banks or remmitance.

Anyone here tried to gamble with cock fighting?
And maybe you know some websites that accepting Bitcoin.

14  Bitcoin / Wallet software / Use cryptocurrency wallet now in Browser w/out any Extensions! on: August 24, 2019, 01:11:47 AM
Recently, one of the open-sourced crypto browser released a Nightly Channel v0.71.17, where you can now use personal ethereum wallet using Brave Browser w/out using any browser's extensions.

What is Brave Browser?
-Brave Browser is open-sourced browser which is based on Chromium browser. This browser also has some rewards feature on their browser which you can pay some content creator or website with BAT token.

How to use the wallet inside Brave Browser?
  • You need a nightly version of Brave Browser first, where you can find and download here (v0.71.17 and higher only).
  • Once you already downloaded and installed. Go to top right three horizontal line -> Crypto Wallets
  • Select now your wallet now, either you restore your ethereum wallet or create a new one. You can use also your hardware wallets, like Ledger and Trezor.
.
  • That's it, make sure you back-up your Secret Backup Phrase once you create a new on the Brave Browser. When you just need to open your wallet, just enter your created password and send/receive anytime while using your browser only.


Seems familiar? This is the metamask browser extension, right? The Brave Browser included Metamask on their browser already, that's why you don't need to install any extension for their browser.
Although this is still for ethereum wallet and still on the nightly version, I am hoping that it will also support a lot of cryptocurrencies soon, especially Bitcoin and will release it on the official Brave browser.

Also, when you are betting in such beauty contests, how we can select the winner like the basis on it especially when the pageant is not yet started.
And what other possibilities games to bet in one beauty contest? Just like in basketball, there are A.) first half highest point, B.) Over and under overall total scores, C.) Odd/even total scores, etc.

17  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / Hardware wallets OLED Display Vulnerability[Trezor One, Ledger Nano S/X, etc.] on: August 08, 2019, 05:31:58 AM
This vulnerability is on Trezor One only for hardware wallets of Trezor, Ledger Nano S and Ledger Nano X, but...  
This vulnerability also is found on some have a similar feature on OLED display which includes many hardware wallets. So, check your hardware wallets now if they are affected on this OLED display vulnerability.

What will be the possible action of the attacker?
Quote
The attack requires device owners to use USB equipment that has been physically manipulated by an attacker. In other situations, users are not impacted...
An attacker has to trick the targeted device owner into performing sensitive device actions with some sort of malicious USB equipment connecting the Trezor One and the computer.

Recommended to do with your hardware wallets:
For Trezor One:
If you have your Trezor One, it is much better to update your firmware to the latest one which is v1.8.2, updating to the latest version will mitigates the issue.
If you also have any Trezor wallet with a different model, it is still much better if you will update your firmware into the latest one, even the Trezor team also suggest that.
Make sure you have the back-up of your correct recovery seed before updating the firmware.

Read more about the vulnerability here: https://blog.trezor.io/details-of-the-oled-vulnerability-and-its-mitigation-d331c4e2001a

For Ledger Nano S and Ledger Nano X:
Ledger already released their article about the OLED screen vulnerability which can be found here: OLED screen (minor) vulnerability.
Which they leave a statement of updating the firmware for the upcoming firmware updates to be released in Q4 2019..
Quote
As always, users of Ledger Nano S and Ledger Nano X should update their hardware wallets with upcoming firmware updates, to be released in Q4 2019. We further recommend users to set up their hardware wallets by themselves, in a safe place, and storing the recovery phrase securely.

Also thanks for Christian Reitter, an independent security researcher who found this vulnerability.
18  Economy / Trading Discussion / One of the Best Weapons in Trading on: August 07, 2019, 07:03:21 AM
Have you ever experienced doing trade and ended it up by #HODLING? (You bought a coin and waiting to pump, but unfortunately it dumps, and decided to wait for it until it pumps)
Have you ever experienced liquidated on Margin Trading Exchanges? (Huge red/green wick candle? Cheesy)

I want to share my weapon against that situation. Meet, STOP-LOSS.
What is Stop-loss?
Stop-loss is accepting your loss on the trade or you are minimizing your loss or cutting loss before getting rekt in ahead of time.

Why we need to use stop-loss?
Example:

As you can see the example above, you minimize your loss around 5%, because if you didn't exit on your trade or accepted your loss, you can lose a huge amount in the future if the price continues to dump.
Onto your next trade! Always remember that there will be always a good setup and sometimes much better if you learn how to accept your loss.


Where we can use stop-loss?
Let's say your trading style is about support and resistance.
If you have a long entry, the best to put your stop-loss is on below on the support.
If you have short entry, the best to put your stop-loss is on above the resistance.

It's always up to you where you can set your stop-loss, just always remember that when you use it, you are minimizing your loss in ahead of time or once your chart becomes invalidated.


How to use stop-loss?
You can set your stop-loss once you already had your entry, so this order will be executed based on your condition manually entered.
Example on Bitmex:

For example, I bought(long) $500 worth of BTC at the price of $12,000.
I set my stop-loss sell order on $11,500, less $500 on my entry price.
So, once the price of BTC goes below or on $11,500, my sell order executed and I only lost around 4% on that trade.

This is example for Binance of Limit Stop-loss:
You will set an order:

and


Most of the exchanges don't have Market Stop-loss only the Limit stop-loss as far as I experienced different exchanges.


Conclusion
Using stop-loss is not worst at all. Accepting our loss is not bad. Minimizing our loss is absolutely good than maximizing it.
There will be a good trade set-up. Not all the time are good to trade, sometimes the best trade is not to trade.
19  Economy / Scam Accusations / Bamboo (BBO) - Plagiarized Whitepaper on: August 06, 2019, 08:26:17 AM
ANN Thread: 🌿🌎 [ANN] Bamboo (BBO) - Insurance for Everyone! | archived

FLAG CREATED: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;flag=587

I know this is a very small part of being plagiarized, but plagiarism is plagiarism. Check my evidence below.

It is really intended a plagiarized on some sentence of the whitepaper and images.
Since if you can see on the original author on some sentence or image they used, they site their another/original source but on the whitepaper of Bamboo, no sources.

Copy: Also page 9 on the whitepaper.


Original is in this URL: https://issuu.com/charlton_media/docs/hca_nov16feb17_lowres
Even the author on that e-book, stated some names or maybe author from the other books which is "Sarah Butler, a PwC Australia national healthcare leader."


And additional images copied without siting their source:

20  Local / Pamilihan / [BEWARE] Fake/Scam Cryptocurrencies Giveaways sa mga Social Media on: August 05, 2019, 08:32:48 AM
MAG INGAT!

Nag umpisa nanaman ang mga kupal sa mga social medias, dahil papataas nanaman ang presyo ni Bitcoin. Ang iba ang nag uumpisa na mag hasik ng lagim, lalo na sa mga bagohan sa crypto, at sa social media pa ito sila nang bibiktima. Kaya ingat tayo.

Ito ang mga ibang example na posibiling mga SCAM or FAKE Giveaways na nagkalat kahit saan.


Sa Facebook yan. Alam ko madami sa ating mga kababayan na gumagamit ng Bitcoin, kaya ingat kayo. At baka may mga kakilala kayo na bagohan sa crypto, pagsabihan niyo na din sila.

Tapos sa mga twitter din, madami na din nagkalat na bagong modus nila. Ngayon picture na ang tinitweet nila na edited, kunwari may mga sikat na crypto accounts na nag te tweet ng mga links na legit daw, ganito ganyan.


Paano mo ito maiiwasan?
  • Laging magbasa!
  • Matutong magtanong sa mas nakakaalam.
  • Walang easy money.
  • Think before you click.

Additional sa facebook app. Pwede mo ma filter ang mga comment ng mga tao sa mga sikat na crypto page.
If you will look on the comments, you can see a drop down, which will sort the comments, based on Most relevant, Newest, All comments.

By default, it is set by Most Relevant, but this can be effective if there are already a lot of comments, because it will just sort and avoid some spam/scam comments. Check the screenshot I uploaded below for more information about this feature on the comment section of every posts.

Again, it is still the best to report the posts if you encounter these kinds of comment/posts.


Always "think before you click", wag agad agad magtitiwala kahit kanino pag nasa internet ka. Lalo na ngayon, tumataas na ang presyo ni Bitcoin, nagkalat na ang mga masasamang tao upang nakawin ang mga Bitcoins mo. Laging magbasa, wag magmadali, walang easy money sa buhay, lahat yan pinaghihirapan.
