1  Other / Meta / Post History Do Not Reflect on: July 01, 2022, 08:45:08 AM
Well, I know this isn't a concern but I was curious to know how the hell this Newbie account's post does not reflect in the "Show the last posts of this person" The post count says he had 6 previous post which is true[1], but it isn't reflected in the history. Plus, there are lots of them.

I am suspecting that posts in ANN(Altcoins) is counted but does not reflect in the history? I may have missed this.

2  Other / Meta / Removing Current Topic Notifications on: June 10, 2022, 03:56:26 AM
Heya! Is it possible to remove all of the threads from my "Current Topic Notifications"?

I know I can check all the threads at once by using the checkbox next to "Started by." However, I have more than 80+ pages of threads to clear, and repeating the same process is time-consuming. Is there a bot or SMF function that I'm overlooking?

This is the only time I've used these settings in all my years on the forum...LOL:Smiley
3  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / Any vulnerabilities in changing OLED screen of Ledger Nano S? on: April 10, 2022, 12:28:49 PM
Heya! I'm aware that this question has been asked many times before. Still, I'd need some feedback from others to see if I'm making the right decision in purchasing a 0.91-inch OLED screen[1] to replace my Ledger Nano S, which had faded significantly after 1.5 years of use.

I'm also aware that Ledger developed a countermeasure for the display vulnerability[2] discovered in their old firmware, which they claimed was non-critical, but I still want to make sure that what I'm trying to do is practical and completely safe.


Thank you!!
4  Economy / Gambling discussion / Valorant Stage 1 Challengers Discussion Thread on: March 18, 2022, 11:45:06 PM

First and foremost, there are really no popular bookies platform that offers crypto bets on Valorant. I just found recently that Thunderpick offers betting but haven't tried it yet.

To those who aren't fond of Valorant tournaments. You can visit the tournaments happening around the world here >>

It seems that the Valorant had been grown since its first beta release back in 2020. And no wonder that some of users here already asked if the game[1] would be good to be featured in bookies, but apparently only less platforms that are onto crypto accepts it. Still now, I only found Thunderpick but still has problems whether to use it (it uses their own coin system and not really a direct crypto betting). Also, still haven't implemented Valorant. So if someone will recommend bookies that accept crypto as betting payment, please let us all know  Grin

The purpose of this thread is to follow the current major tournaments of valorant in each region, use this thread as basis in some fiat betting platforms, and give us our thoughts until some crypto bookies will be up and accept Valorant bets. I'll try my best to update this thread from time to time Cheesy

my bets are those bold-typed teams. games as of -- March 18, 11:45PM UTC


Cloud9 vs Optic Gaming --
Sentinels vs TheGuard --
Knights vs XSet --


M3 Champions vs Guild Esports --
G2 Esports vs Team Liquid --


Made in Thailand vs Boom Esports --
Persija Esports vs PapeRex --
Oblivion Force vs South Built Esports --
Bleed Esports vs XERXIA --


Keyd Stars vs Gamelanders Blue --
Gamelanders Blue vs FURIA Esports --


E-Xolos LAZER vs KRÜ Esports --
Leviatán vs FUSION --

What are your thoughts guys? What is your stand with the teams you are looking forward to win?

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Machine Learning for identifying SCAM NFT Games on: March 07, 2022, 01:48:57 AM
Hi everyone!

I just wanna ask if there's interest in an application that uses machine learning to identify potentially fraudulent NFT games. Machine Learning is basically an approach in which we feed raw data to an application/machine and it learns something on its own[1]. And I understand that there is a lot of data to examine, such as their website, github repository, whitepaper and fake team to be utilized as Artificial Intelligence training data, and so on...but is there even a demand for it? Is this a worthwhile research project?

On the other hand, I discovered a previous study[2] that utilizes the similar process but instead of NFT, they identify scam ICOs, which provides me an idea for this study's topic. With the NFT games at peak, will this topic be helpful in many ways?

6  Economy / Trading Discussion / Kewltech Technical Analysis blogs on: January 17, 2022, 06:36:04 AM
Okay! I admit that I have been researching the art and science of technical analysis a lot these past few days, and I believe I am now on the rabbit hole of T.A in which I encountered one particular trader who introduces the concept of trends, S/R, accumulation, and distribution that helps a lot of technical traders to view the chart on a different level.

I discovered a trader named Kewltech who has published numerous blogposts that help many traders improve their trading system. However, only a few[1] of them are still available on the internet, and the blogsite[2] itself is now restricted for access.

Does any of your have managed to save some of this blog? Alternative link of compilation? Or just simply a .pdf file? You'll definitely find some of his articles invaluable upon reading them.

7  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / Unable to establish connection with iframe on: January 13, 2022, 05:46:00 AM
I am trying to add multiple accounts to Metamask using the "Connect Hardware Wallet" function on the Metask GUI, but the thing is, there is an error showing "Popup error: Unable to establish connection with iframe".

Quick fix that I have tried:

- disabling all of my browser extension such as HTTPS Everywhere, Decentraleyes and UBlock Origin
- Changed my browser privacy settings from Custom to Standard
- I unlocked the Trezor before clicking the "Connect Hardware Wallet" in metamask.
- installed the latest Trezor Bridge here:
- system restart

This is the link to where I downloaded the extension for metamask:

8  Economy / Trading Discussion / Underrated Trading resources on: January 09, 2022, 07:33:53 AM
Hey cryptoheads! With all the fake gurus and wannabe traders that are trying to sell you something which claims that they have cracked the market, I just wanna share some of the best, honest and non-bullshit trading resources that I found on the internet.

@EmperorBTCTwitter, Telegram
Crypto CredYoutube, Twitter, Telegram
@bloodgoodBTCTwitter, Telegram, Discord
Trader DanteYoutube

The list/compilation is still relatively short because it is difficult to find a good trader who consistently uploads learning materials without a paywall. If you have anything to share that you believe is not BS, I would gladly check and include it on the list to help people find their trading edge. Thank you very much.
9  Economy / Trading Discussion / Do we have trading chatroom exclusive for bitcointalk traders? on: January 02, 2022, 12:38:22 PM

Does bitcointalk members have trading community chatroom (e.g, Dicord, Telegram)? I tried searching about this but it never gave me any useful results. Also, I don't want to spam the trading board for frequently asking short questions.

Thank you everyone!
10  Economy / Service Discussion / [Question] Max Account of Metamask and Ronin Wallet on: September 05, 2021, 01:17:55 AM

Can someone confirm the maximum number of accounts that can be created on a Metamask and Ronin wallet (wallet used by Mavis Hub)? I can't find this info on their F.A.Q's or any documentation and a lot of people have different claims about the numbers without any proof.

Thank you.
11  Economy / Trading Discussion / Can someone explain "Funding Rate" in layman's term? on: August 28, 2021, 10:32:34 AM
Okay. I've come across a new term called "Funding Rate," and I believe I understand the premise that it determines overall trader sentiments, whether bullish or bearish.

However, I find it difficult to understand what these lines quoted below means and how the "LONG pays SHORTS and vice versa" is related to maintaining the closeness of the futures price and spot price (or index price?)?

Because perpetual futures contracts never settle in the traditional sense, market operators need a mechanism to ensure that the contract and index prices would periodically converge. Funding rates serve this role.
12  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / [Question] Importing derivation path in Ledger Live on: August 03, 2021, 09:55:37 AM
Using my Electrum, I created multiple accounts in Native SegWit (bech32) with the following derivation path, one of which is empty and the other contains funds.

m/84'/0'/0' - contains funds
m/84'/0'/1' - empty
m/84'/0'/2' - contains funds

The issue is that when I use the Ledger Live to scan the third wallet (m/84'/0'/2'), it only detects the empty wallet with the derivation path m/84'/0'/1'. It says that I need to deposit some funds first in the empty wallet to scan the 3rd wallet.

Is it possible to import the derivation path of the 3rd wallet in LL (m/84'/0'/2') to see the balance in it without funding the empty wallet?
13  Bitcoin / Wallet software / Bluewallet "save to disk exception" error on: July 26, 2021, 09:17:57 AM
Heya! I have been using Bluewallet as my hot wallet for about a few months now, and this is the first time I encountered an error like this.

I am certain that I'm using the most recent version of their official Android app, which can be downloaded from the Google Play store[1].

MIUI Global 12.5.1

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Axie Infinity: Game/ Token Opinion on: June 27, 2021, 06:51:24 AM
I've been playing this game for about a week now and I'm still having a great time with it. The game mechanics and economy are both intriguing enough to keep players engaged for a long time while earning money during the pandemic. However, one of the most common challenges that many people experience is the congestion on servers.  It is the cause of the game's inability to run efficiently, making it impossible for players to meet their daily SLP quota.

But how will this game adapt if there is a huge inflow of players, putting the server in jeopardy and potentially causing a server failure? Though I am aware that blockchain gaming is still in its infancy, and that it is a multidisciplinary area that encompasses encryption, decentralization, and other factors that make server scalability difficult plus it is unmistakably distinct from other non-blockchain games.

Why can't they choose to temporarily suspend account creation to maintain traffic control while they work on improving their server and upgrading scalability issues?

Your opinions are very much appreciated.
15  Economy / Gambling discussion / Netflix's Money, Explained: E04 Gambling on: June 16, 2021, 04:34:02 AM

I recently watched the first 4 episodes of Netflix's "Money, Explained" and one of its episodes discusses the mechanism of how our brains work when gambling. Personally, the "Gambling" episode was an eye-opener for me as I have gained a lot of interesting facts and different collective opinions which might give us a different point of view.

The Gist of the episode:

The fourth episode is all about gambling, its history, the psychology behind it, the process of getting hooked into gambling as well the most alarming issue that I have heard where it says that day trading is just pure gambling.

One thing that we are all familiar with is the psychology that the gambling industry has evaluated to keep their customer to gamble by using the so-called "hooks". These hooks are something that will make people sit for long hours while making their gambling experience more enjoyable and enticing to make a lot of money. In effect, if these people have been "hooked", they will now fall under a mental state[1] of total focus called the "The Zone". This means that the long hours of keeping people into gambling, the more money they can take out of other people's pockets.

These psychology tactics have also led other trading and investing company to use them to keep people unaware of the risk they are taking while being spammed with notifications of the current market sentiment, and an opportunity to get a free stock. Moreover, this episode also emphasizes that day trading is equivalent to gambling.

My take:

I am aware that the argument about day trading as gambling or not has been discussed often before and it could be tiring to prove a particular point due to its subjective nature. One could say that day trading is a combination of little to non T. A and pure luck, others would say that day trading could never equate to gambling since the ability to read charts and proper risk management would decrease the percentage of getting rekt.

It will just result in a never-ending comparison.

16  Economy / Service Discussion / Any reviews about trading jornal application/software/servive? on: June 13, 2021, 10:52:42 AM
Greetings everyone,

I have been looking various trading journal services across different platform including reddit and any other different trading platform and it seems that the popular ones are as follows.

  • TraderSync
  • TraderVue
  • And of course the excel spreadsheet

I wonder if the first 2 platforms also work in cryptocurrency since I found them on forex and stocks trading forum discussion. Would love to know your recommendation of any other platform that you currently use to monitor your win rate, average winning per day, etc. Or I should use an excel spreadsheet to monitor my progress?

Would appreciate if you have any other suggestions in mind that I should consider. Thank you.

18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / NFT Questions on: April 01, 2021, 01:30:48 PM
Hey people especially for members who are doing an NFT services or is selling their artworks to an NFT platform. I have a few questions.

[1] Let's say for example there is one person who placed and manages to win the bid? What are process or ways to verify that the bidder can actually pay the price? We can never tell though if that person is just bluffing the bid and has no capacity to pay the bid he placed.

[2] How is the payment escrowed? Is it done by the platform itself?

[3] What are the preferred platforms to use that has an ample volume of bidders?

Thank you so much everyone!

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Non Fungible Token (NFT) questions on: February 28, 2021, 05:49:43 AM
So I am reading and researching a lot of stuff regarding the benefits and real use cases of NFT's, however there are still lots of unanswered questions regarding its concept. Based on what I have understand, though, NFT's are just a digital version of the traditional document "Certificate of Authenticity" or COA that has the verified signature and important elements provided by the artist in it right?

Meaning NFT's doesn't provide any investment opportunities where you can easily re-sell the copy of the digital image that you bought from the artist to another art collector at a higher price?

However, on another standpoint, the real use case of NFT's are just meant to provide digital imprint that certifies the real owner allowing him/her to freely sell his digital art compositions without having to worry about piracy isn't it? So NFT's that is viewed as a money making opportunity is just bullshit right?

Edit: Moved to BnH board since I can't get any response from Altcoin Discussion Board.
