4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / DeFi Safety - here you check DeFi projects and their smart contracts audits. on: September 05, 2020, 03:53:45 PM
DeFi has taken the crypto market by storm, new protocols are popping up like crazy and already many people have a problem to even track them.

Don't mention the safety of these smart contracts, nobody knows for sure if they were audited and creators are even hiding the facts about audits or their outcomes.

If you are buying, then for sure you want to be safe as possible and here comes DeFi Safety website with help.

DeFi Safety - is a new website which gives ratings on DeFi projects audits, smart contracts quality and safety.


https://defisafety.com/

Quote
DeFi asks us to trust smart contracts, rather than companies, governments or individuals. They ask you to trust the code. DeFi Safety checks the code, how it was developed, tested and score the results.
Quote
We review the public documents, software repository, website and other documentation and ask the following questions. The answers are documented and a score determined using a set scoring matrix.

And here are the actual audits of all already known and new DeFi projects (smart contracts):


https://defisafety.com/

When we click on the audit we are interested in, we will get detailed information, which looks like this:


https://defisafety.com/aave-protocol-audit-results/

As we can see Aave has a pretty high audit score, we can click further and see all information about every component of the audit:


https://docs.defisafety.com/finished-audits/aave-process-quality-audit#deployed-code

I hope that DeFi Safety will help you at least make better decisions when investing in this insane HYPED DeFi projects.

Stay safe and never invest more then you can afford to lose. Peace.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / TxStreet.com - live cryptocurrency transaction visualizer. on: August 13, 2020, 04:45:39 PM
I want to share this great tool with you, I think it is worth a look because is pretty original and shows BTC, ETH, BCH transactions flow in a very special way.

https://txstreet.com/

Quote
TxStreet.com is a live cryptocurrency transaction visualizer featuring Bitcoin, Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash. When a new transaction is broadcasted to a cryptocurrency, a person appears and attempts to board a bus. If the transaction has a high enough fee, they will board the first bus and be ready to be included in the next mined block. If there are too many transactions to be included in the next block, and the transaction didn't pay a high enough fee, the person will either wait in line or board a different bus. Consecutive buses will appear when there are enough transactions to fill them.


https://txstreet.com/v/eth-btc

I don't want to tell too much, just open this website and check by yourself, I like it very much, especially, the ability to see the biggest players in the networks.

We can literally see in real-time from which exchanges, pools, DEXs, etc. transactions are coming, exact fee price, count, time and so much more.

I hope you will enjoy it just like I have.
6  Other / Off-topic / WATCH OUT - TikTok app is a SPYWARE!!! on: July 06, 2020, 10:22:34 AM
I have seen many posts in which members are selling or searching for accounts, likes, etc. for TikTok, so I thought it will be wise to warn the forum about this SPYWARE.

Quote
CNN reports US lawmakers on both sides of the aisle warn that the app could pose a national security risk, and are calling on regulators and intelligence agencies to investigate TikTok’s ties to China.
https://blog.zimperium.com/zimperium-analyzes-tiktoks-security-and-privacy-risks/

India already banned TikTok and urged users to delete the app immediately.
https://www.forbes.com/sites/zakdoffman/2020/07/04/tiktok-loses-6-billion-as-users-urged-delete-app-immediately/#34a04d7e1c98

Of course, now everybody wonders what is so worrying about the TokTok app that it becomes banned and even called national security?

Here are the reasons:



Here a video from YouTube showing - TikTok app in action spying on user device.


https://youtu.be/l_fVbuXLaAA

The origins of TikTok suggest that the Chinese government is involved and this is the best way for them to be the next Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube in one.

TikTok CEO, Kevin Mayer, denied that the app was spying on their users and assured the Indian government:
Quote
I can confirm that the Chinese government has never made a request to us for the TikTok data of Indian users
https://www.forbes.com/sites/zakdoffman/2020/07/04/tiktok-loses-6-billion-as-users-urged-delete-app-immediately/#1ff606be1c98

Of course, the Chinese government has never made such a request because for sure they have the keys to TikTok kingdom, there is just no other way to build such an application in China, without the government's full involvement and control. Just like Facebook and they are from the USA  Wink Cheesy.

So, I'll leave the assessment to you. For me, it is really scary that they can do literally anything with your device and I definitely recommend removing TikTok ASAP!!!

A few more worth to read articles about TikTok:

10  Economy / Gambling discussion / Let's talk Texas Holdem poker hands and how to play like a PRO? on: April 30, 2020, 01:16:49 PM
I haven't seen a thread in this section with a discussion about poker hands played in various Texas Holdem games by our members.

Few times I wanted to share a tricky hand to discuss the in and outs of poker, with fellow poker players from around the world, but to my surprise, there was no thread for this, at least an active one.

Additionally, yesterday I saw a few hands shared in the WO thread and thought that this is the right time to start a thread where anybody would be able to share poker hands and discuss them.

Let's make a few rules:

1. Only Texas Holdem hands, but feel free to talk about poker (texas holdem), as a whole too, strategies, etc. This has not to be a hand per se.
2. No spamming or off-topics not related to poker, let's focus on hands.
3. The best hands will be added to the opening post.

like I said, I have seen a great hand in the WO thread yesterday shared by @BitcoinGirl.Club, so maybe let's start from this one.

HAND NR.1


How fucked you will feel after this?

The guy had QQ and I had KK33 two pairs in the flop! I knew there is a little chance to have a flash in the flop since there are three diamonds already but how the fuck is going to know that the other guy was just relaying on QQ and called my big bet! Even in the trun I was still in the game and placed bet again. He called again. Still he was relying on only QQ but in the river he got fucking luck and I am out!!!

Fucking luck never been with me in this gambling game...

Pre flop
Seeing K3 I gone with my regular bet amount I think I called BB

Flop
Since I have now KK33 I gone with higher amount, I think half of the chips I had in the table. Two pairs with K so you do not doubt much of course. But the other guy called!

The Turn
Since the other guy called I was thinking may be he had a flash but I have already invested a lot of chips and god damn it, it's KK33. I had other thought in mind that the guy is bluffing since he has almost double chips on board than me so he can have the luxury. The only way to test it is to bet an unusual amount and give him a shock. So I gone ALL IN!

But I got shocked when he called that too. And I was feeling fucked as well. I was just hoping the best for me.

River
When I saw diamond then I was pretty sure that the guy had a flash now if he had not in the first three card from Flop. But still I was hoping the best for me.

And finally when the card showed I felt fucked up! The guy was just taking chance with his QQ and got lucky. He was not in the game before River round. Bluffed with calling my ALL IN and he won!

Fucked!!!

11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Can BTC really be a safe haven? on: April 23, 2020, 01:24:06 PM
To answer the question: can BTC really be a safe haven? we'll have to find out what is the main problem that keeps it far away from being one?

In my opinion, this is VOLATILITY. So what forces BTC to make such large price movements?

It turns out that the biggest problem is the extreme leverage on cryptocurrency markets, which is offered by unregulated offshore exchanges.

BTC is highly concentrated and data show that almost 95% of BTC resources belong to a relatively small number of addresses. Such conditions give the market a 'kick' and increase greed.
At the same time, many traders who are using highly leveraged trading platforms have a very high-risk appetite and not always the skills needed to play with 100 or 200X leveraged trades.

BTC                ADDRESSES      %                 COINS                 USD              %COINS

https://bithub.pl/wiadomosci/bitcoin-na-lasce-algorytmow-dlaczego-btc-i-safe-haven-to-na-razie-zwykla-mrzonka/

Most exchanges that offer trading with very high leverage were not designed to handle not only the large-scale volumes in times of heavy market congestion but also the network traffic itself.
The problem of overloading exchange servers has become very common in the last two years. It is ironic that such things happen, of course, at times when markets tend to increase their trading volume drastically. This is a big problem, as we have seen lately, because it makes it difficult for traders to reduce their exposure, when such an event occurs, leaving them at the mercy of aggressive liquidation algorithms.

We have to remember that regulated exchanges only offer around 3 times leverage.

Crypto exchange insurance funds act both as an external picture of the exchange's success, but also as a measure of how aggressive and harmful their liquidation algorithms are for the traders.
This is because on almost every crypto exchange the insurance fund is capitalized from the liquidations of traders' positions.

100x leverage and higher 200X is attractive (at least at first glance) for a trader who wants to maximize profits with a minimum contribution of his own capital, but it causes this insane BTC price volatility, which prevents the profitable use of such high leverage. If the plug by Bitmex would not be pulled out on time a few weeks ago, BTC price would fell to 0$.
How could this happen? Isn't this still too early for such high leverage 100 or 200X in the crypto market?
https://hacked.com/bitcoins-price-recovery-stalls-as-bitmex-shuts-down-u-s-accounts/

In my opinion, only because of this Bitmex incident it would be wise to limit the widely available throughout the ecosystem high leverage to stop this absurd volatility and give a chance to BTC to be this safe haven finally!!!

Quote
Until the crypto exchanges attempt to solve this problem, bitcoin will not free itself from the framework of being a spinning toy towards a resource of true interest for traditional market players.

12  Local / Gokken/lotterijen / Legaal online poker spelen vanuit Nederland, is dit zelfs mogelijk? on: April 03, 2020, 10:24:13 AM
Ik heb veel tijd tijdens deze pandemie  Wink, dus ik dacht dat het een goed moment zou zijn om weer poker te gaan spelen (toernooien, sit and goes, freerolls) maar tot mijn verbazing, al mijn accounts die ik heb jaren geleden geregistreerd bij Party Poker, Winamax, 888, Americas Cardroom en vele anderen online pokerruimtes zijn niet meer actief en ik kan daar niet spelen omdat Nederland een van de beperkte landen is.

Ik heb een paar jaar pauze gehad van online poker, maar ik wist niet dat de situatie in Nederland zo slecht is? Is dit nog steeds mogelijk om online poker te spelen met mijn echte IP?

Ik heb in het verleden berichten ontvangen dat mijn accounts worden gesloten, maar ik dacht dat dit kwam door lange inactiviteit. Ik hoop dat er in ieder geval een paar spelers uit Nederland op dit forum zijn en ze zullen zo vriendelijk zijn om me te helpen en mijn vragen te beantwoorden.
13  Economy / Gambling discussion / How to play online poker legally from the Netherlands, is this even possible? on: April 03, 2020, 10:21:40 AM
I have a lot of time during this pandemic and the Netherlands as many other countries is closed, so I thought it will be a great time to start playing poker (tournaments, sit and goes, freerolls) again, but to my surprise, all my accounts (which I have registered years ago) by Party Poker, Winamax, 888, Americas Cardroom and many other poker rooms are not active anymore and I can't play there because Netherland is one of the restricted countries.

I had a few years break from online poker but I didn't know that the situation is so bad in the Netherlands? Is this still possible to play poker online with my real IP? Where if yes?

I hope there are at least a few players from the Netherlands on this forum and they will be so kind to help me.

P.S
I know that I could use a VPN or proxy server to hide my real IP but what with the verification? Is there any way to pass positively the proof of address?

14  Local / Polski / Wątek koronawirusowy on: March 25, 2020, 10:28:32 PM
...Póki co cena jest jako-tako stabilna, poczekajmy na raporty wyników pierwszego kwartału przez spółki giełdowe pod koniec kwietnia + jakie będzie z bezrobociem + kończące się oszczędności wielu ludzi i firm przez najbliższe tygodnie.

Nie trzeba być prorokiem, żeby wywróżyć, że te raporty, będą jednymi z najgorszych w historii.

Pomimo pompowania pieniędzy w gospodarki, sektor usług leży na łopatkach, bezrobocie będzie rosło, bo firmy będą padać (z oczywistych względów), inflacja wystrzeli (hiperinflacja), spowolnienie gospodarcze, itd.

Trudne czasy idą, ale powiem szczerze, że podczas kryzysu w 2008 roku, miałem, takie wewnętrzne przeczucie, że nie będzie wesoło, a teraz podczas aktualnej pandemii, jakoś nie jestem do końca przekonany, chociaż fakty mówią za siebie, a raczej krzyczą na alarm.
15  Local / Polski / Ranking kryptowalut on: March 23, 2020, 07:35:26 PM
Nie wiem czy zauważyliście, że BSV (ten shitcoin Craiga W.  Wink Grin), jest już na szóstym miejscu w ogólnym rankingu kryptowalut.

Prześcignął nawet Litecoina i brakuje, tylko troszkę, żeby przeskoczył Bitcoin Cash.

Już nie wspomnę, że jest przed Binance Coin, co moim zdaniem, jest zupełnie bez sensu i dowodzi, że to prawda, że rynek wycenia zazwyczaj źle.


https://www.coingecko.com/en

Jest tyle dobrych projektów i jak widzę Tether, BSV, BCH czy Ripple na pierwszych miejscach w rankingu, to wydaje mi sie, że jest to najlepszy dowód na to, że na prawdę dużo sie zmieniło w świecie kryptowalut i pewnie czeka nas, jeszcze nie jeden zimny prysznic.

Wychodzi na to, że pomimo braku akceptacji ze strony społeczności BTC dla BSV, Ripple, BCH czy Tether (USDT), nie wpływa to na ich wartość, cały czas osłabiając pozycję Bitcoina, jako lidera.

Nie ważne, że połowa z nich, to w ogóle nie są kryptowaluty, a reszta, to zwykłe kopie BTC. Wychodzi na to, że rynek nie zwraca, żadnej uwagi na społeczność i jej opinie, wyceniając te altcoiny.

Kto z Was przypuszczał, jeszcze parę miesięcy temu, że ranking kryptowalut będzie wyglądał tak jak dzisiaj?
16  Economy / Service Discussion / Aggregated Heatmap for traders from Bitcoinwisdom.io (BTC/USD). on: March 02, 2020, 11:45:30 AM
As this is the section in which we discuss services, I want to share here the latest tool from Bitcoinwisdom.io that I recently found.

AGGREGATED HEATMAP allows traders to see when buy and sale orders are positioned on the market, so now it's easier to see how these huge orders have an impact on Bitcoin's value.

Completely new software that makes it easier to watch the whales who control the Bitcoin market.


https://bitcoinwisdom.io/the-heatmap

How does AGGREGATED HEATMAP work?

With regard to the purchase and sale of cryptocurrency, heat maps are used to indicate the graphical liquidity of the selected market under the type of horizontal bars at each level of value.
Most cryptocurrency exchanges only present a heat map of their own order books.

The horizontal axis of this chart represents time, while the vertical axis represents the value of the order. Orders in each value range are marked with a colored block, and the depth of this color represents a variety of orders with this value.

UPDATE
Bitcoinwisdom updated their AGGREGATED HEATMAP lately and added a couple of new features.

Now we can easily choose between different exchanges or select them all to have readings from all order books, additionally, they added personalized settings to the heatmap, so now we can adjust everything to our needs. Added exchanges: Coinbase, Kraken, Bitmex, Bitstamp, Bitfinex.


https://bitcoinwisdom.io/the-heatmap

As you can see on the screen, I was able to adjust the settings and to make the reads less noisy.

If you don't have any other tool for order books, then this is a great alternative, most important that it is free. If you still haven't used it, then it is for sure worth checking, especially for traders.

With good personalized settings, I am able to set up correctly stop-loss orders, start or finish trades at the right time, recognize incoming corrections, buy/sell walls, etc.
17  Other / Meta / A reply of yours, quoted below, was deleted by a Bitcoin Forum moderator. on: February 13, 2020, 01:12:18 PM
"A reply of yours, quoted below, was deleted by a Bitcoin Forum moderator."

This is literally all information received by a user whose post has been deleted, and we can't forget, that in some cases, these are long working hours that have been irrevocably removed.
Of course, in 99% of cases, this is enough, because the spammer was punished, but in 1% of the cases, hours of someone's work disappeared and there is no easy way to find out why?

Information: "A reply of yours, quoted below, was deleted by a Bitcoin Forum moderator." is not sufficient and there should be at least a link provided to the thread from which it was removed.
TBH, there should be username added of the moderator who removed it, to be able to communicate with him, additionally, an annotation in the thread too, that the post was removed.

This could be really hard to even find the proper thread from which our posts were removed without all this information or to look further for help, especially in cases that really need this second look.



As an example, I can throw here my 2 (exactly 3) posts that were recently removed.

Two weeks ago two of my posts were deleted by a moderator and I found that this is really hard or even impossible for me to find out why they were removed, so I started to look for help, but to my surprise, there is not much I could do Undecided Huh.

Both posts were published in the Mining Board, where we can see at the first look, that mining had really hard times lately, majority of threads in this section are locked and not much is going on there at all. Anyways, I was able to find two threads that were interesting for me and I knew a lot about the subject. Both threads were opened a long time ago, but still frequently updated with new comments. Of course, because there is not much going on, sometimes answers in these threads were posted with long monthly breaks.

As always, before I commented there, I have read both threads fully and prepared really high-quality on-topic answers. Both threads were updated with new comments about a week or two ago and are still open and running. Both removed posts were (additionally) already merited by few members (just after publishing) and one of these posts got an answer from the thread OP in which he stated that he is interested in the info I just provided. In short, the discussion was started again.

I have to add that this reply from OP was also removed.



To better understand what I am talking about, here are screens from both posts, with links to threads.


The winter mining setup


Bitcoin Mining on an APPLE II Computer! Highly Impractical Other Devices? Poll!

As I already mentioned, both posts were immediately merited by few members and the thread OP, here screen:



These are my first merits for deleted posts Undecided.

First, I asked few members, I know here on the forum personally for help to look at these posts to find the reasons for removal, which I could have missed, but nobody was able to find it either, even other moderators, so I started by sending PM's to mods from the mining board: Gmaxwell and Frodocooper, kindly asking for explanation and help.





Only moderator Gmaxwell was so kind to answer and did it very fast after only one day:



As you can clearly see even moderators can't see the reasons for deletion Huh

I have waited good two weeks for the answer from Frodocooper but never received it Undecided.



I started this thread to discuss in a wider group the need to enrich the information that the user receives after his post is removed, but also quietly counted to find out the reason for deleting my posts, because I do not want to spam, a few additional moderators with PMs if I still even don't know who did it?

As I already mentioned the provided information: "A reply of yours, quoted below, was deleted..." is not sufficient when there is a problem and one has to look for help.

My suggestion will be to add an additional piece of info like:

- username of a moderator who made the deletion (for an easier contact),
- add a link to the thread from which post was deleted (to make it easier to find),
- add an annotation in the thread from which post was deleted (to inform about deletion OP and other readers),
- add the reasons for deletion (to avoid unneeded questions and additional work).

I hope to discuss these suggestions with the community, additionally counting for a response from the moderator who removed my posts and that he provides valid reasons for it to let me avoid such mistakes in the future if I made any.

Believe me such simple info as a link to thread can save hours of searching. I was lucky to write in mining, where threads from 2018 are still easy to find, but if someone has post deleted from an old thread in the altcoin section and he doesn't remember the title exactly, he will need a lot of luck to find it using the search function, believe me, that you won't remember the titles of the threads or even who published them, after a few hours, don't mention days or weeks.

PS
To be fully honest, I have to add that when I get to know that 2 of my posts were removed in a row (which happens to be very rare or even never happened before), I have written another 3rd post in The winter mining setup thread, which also was removed.



I haven't mentioned this one because I can understand that it could be removed as an off-topic (which also could be discussed  Wink).

Of course, no answer or reaction from the moderator who deleted it.

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / How Many Bitcoin Forks Are There? You will be surprised!!! on: January 30, 2020, 11:11:31 AM
I'll start by explaining what hard fork is for less experienced members.

Quote
Hard fork (or hardfork) - relates to blockchain technology, is a radical change to the network's protocol that makes previously invalid blocks (digital pieces of information) and transactions valid, or vice-versa. A hard fork requires all nodes or users to upgrade to the latest version of the protocol software.
https://www.investopedia.com/terms/h/hard-fork.asp

For a long time, there was discussion in the community about the Bitcoin scaling problem because of 1-megabyte block size, which led to longer transaction times and an increase in fees/commissions.

The first hard fork took place at block #478559 on 1 August 2017, which transformed into a Bitcoin Cash (BCH), that offers larger blocks (up to 8 megabytes at the start).

Of course, to be honest with everybody and myself, I have to add that the BTC scaling problem is today not so important or even can be considered as resolved because we have the Lightning Network, where BTC transactions are practically instant and very cheap.

I already mentioned the most known BTC hard fork BCH and think that many of you know about another one, which is Bitcoin Gold (BTG).

So, let's dig in the true history of BTC forks (hard, soft) and summarise everything chronologically:


https://www.howtotoken.com/explained/bitcoin-forks-chronology-ultimate-list-forks/

As we can see there were already three soft forks (no new coin created) before BCH (XT, Unlimited, Classic) and Segwit fork before the Bitcoin Gold.

For sure all of you now wonder: How Many Bitcoin Forks Are There? and how many new altcoins were created?

There are 105 Bitcoin forks (hard and soft) in total. Of those, 74 are considered active projects, the remaining 31 are considered historic and are no longer relevant.

To be continued because this is only until 2019. I wasn't able to find a full chronological list of BTC forks from start until today, so we can assume that the list is even bigger  Shocked.

PS
There is a discussion ongoing about hard forks, soft forks, and pure copycats. Many members stated that only a couple of these coins should be considered as real coins and the majority is nothing more as worthless copycats which add nothing new at all. Of course, I fully agree with all these statements, but the purpose of this thread was to show: How Many Bitcoin Forks Are There? of course hard and soft once and I didn't provide any details about these coins on purpose.

19  Local / Alternatywne kryptowaluty / Porozmawiajmy o zabezpieczonych (i nie) stablecoinach (GOLD, BASIS, MakerDao). on: January 17, 2020, 11:51:19 AM
Mówiąc wprost, rok 2019 był rokiem stabelcoinów, więc pomyślałem, że dobrze byłoby dowiedzieć się o nich więcej.

StableCoin to kryptowaluta powiązana z innym aktywem, zaprojektowana w celu zminimalizowania zmienności ceny stablecoina w stosunku do pewnego „stabilnego” zasobu lub koszyka aktywów.

ZNACZENIE STABLECOINÓW
Bez stabilności krótko- i długoterminowej uważa się, że przyjmowanie kryptowalut jako bezpośredniego zamiennika walut fiducjarnych jest niezwykle ryzykowne dla głównego nurtu społeczeństwa. Większa adopcja zawsze będzie wymagać pewnej formy stabilności. Z perspektywy konsumenta ryzykowne i niepraktyczne jest używanie kryptowalut do codziennego użytku. Zmienny środek wymiany może zagrozić sile nabywczej użytkowników.

Wiele osób myśli o stablecoinach, że to takie zamienniki walut fiducjarnych (USD, EUR) w kryptowalutach, a to wszystko przez Tether (USDT) czyli pierwszą kryptowalutę stablecoin, która jest przypisana (1: 1) do dolara. Oczywiście nie jest to prawdą i stablecoiny można powiązać z kryptowalutą, pieniądzem fiducjarnym lub towarami będącymi przedmiotem obrotu giełdowego (takimi jak metale szlachetne lub metale przemysłowe). Tu muszę wspomnieć, że są również NIEzabezpieczone stablecoiny, ale wyjaśnię to lepiej w dalszej części artykułu.

Zabezpieczone przez towary

Stablecoiny zabezpieczone przez towary takie jak metale szlachetne (złoto, srebro itp.) są znacznie mniej podatne na inflację niż stablecoiny wspierane przez FIAT. Trudniej jest wydobywać złoto lub srebro niż „tworzyć pieniądze z powietrza”. Posiadacze stablecoinów zabezpieczonych towarami mogą je wymienić po kursie wymiany, aby przejąć rzeczywiste aktywa. Koszt utrzymania stabilności takich stablecoinów to koszt przechowywania i ochrony tkzw. "podkładu towarowego" czyli: złota, srebra, diamentów, itd.

Najlepszym przykładem stablecoina zabezpieczonego właśnie złotem jest wystartowany całkiem nie dawno GOLD (token) z projektu Digital Gold.

GOLD to token ERC20 oparty na Ethereum, wygodny i natychmiastowy sposób przechowywania, kupowania, sprzedawania lub transferu złota klasy inwestycyjnej. GOLD token jest dokładnie tym, czego potrzebujesz, aby kupić złoto i przechowywać je cyfrowo z pełną anonimowością i gwarancją ochrony twoich aktywów przed wysoką zmiennością ceny i utratą wartości. Każdy token GOLD jest w 100% zabezpieczony fizycznym złotem przechowywanym w bezpiecznym skarbcu firmy Bullionstar. Ilość przechowywanego złota fizycznego można zweryfikować w dowolnym momencie. Digital Gold gwarantuje płynność tokena GOLD. Nieograniczoną ilość GOLD można kupić/wymienić na stronie internetowej Digital Gold Marketplace natychmiast 24/7.

Zabezpieczone przez FIAT

Jest to najbardziej powszechna forma monet stablecoin. Stablecoiny zabezpieczone przez FIAT (1 : 1), co oznacza, że ​​1 USDT jest równoważne 1 USD. Chodzi o to, że stablecoin jest „zabezpieczony” przez prawdziwe pieniądze na prawdziwych rachunkach bankowych. Ta kategoria monet stablecoin jest rzeczywiście najprostsza, ale także najbardziej scentralizowana. Najlepszym przykładem jest oczywiście Tether (USDT), ale dziś na rynku są dosłownie dziesiątki stablecoinów wspieranych przez prawie wszystkie waluty fiducjarne. Prawie każdy infrastrukturalny blockchain już wydał własne stabelcoiny.

Zabezpieczone kryptowalutą

Stablecoiny emitowane z kryptowalutami jako zabezpieczenie, koncepcyjnie podobne do tych zabezpieczonych przez FIAT. Jednak znacząca różnica między tymi dwoma projektami polega na tym, że podczas gdy zabezpieczanie FIAT zwykle odbywa się poza łańcuchem bloków, krypto-waluta lub aktywa kryptograficzne używane do zabezpieczenia tego rodzaju stablecoin są wykonywane na blockchainie, przy użyciu inteligentnych kontraktów w bardziej zdecentralizowany sposób. W wielu przypadkach działają one poprzez umożliwienie użytkownikom zaciągnięcia pożyczki na podstawie inteligentnego kontraktu poprzez zablokowanie zabezpieczenia, co sprawia, że ​​bardziej opłacalne jest spłacanie długów w przypadku spadku wartości stablecoina. Aby zapobiec nagłym awariom, użytkownik, który zaciąga pożyczkę, może zostać zlikwidowany na podstawie inteligentnej umowy, jeżeli ich zabezpieczenie spadnie zbyt blisko wartości wycofania.

Wybitnym przykładem zabezpieczonej krypto-stablecoiną jest MAKERDAO (DAI), projekt, który ma 2 osobne monety: MKR i DAI. Skoncentrujemy się na DAI, ponieważ jest to stablecoin wspierany przez inne kryptowaluty. W przeciwieństwie do innych monet stablecoin, DAI nie polega na scentralizowanym podmiocie ani na osobie trzeciej, ponieważ działa całkowicie na blockchainie. DAI to zdecentralizowana moneta zabezpieczona kryptowalutą o nominale zbliżonym do dolarów amerykańskich.

Myślę, że niewielu z was wie, że są również NIEzabezpieczone stablecoiny, o których warto tutaj wspomnieć.

STABLECOINY NIEZABEZPIECZONE

Monety w stylu seigniorage - (Algorytmic StableCoin Model) wykorzystujące algorytmiczne podejście do rozszerzania i ograniczania podaży stablecoina, podobnie jak bank centralny drukuje lub niszczy pieniądze. Wraz ze wzrostem całkowitego popytu na monety powstaje nowa podaż monet stablecoins, aby obniżyć cenę do stabilnego poziomu. Głównym celem jest zbliżenie ceny monety jak najbliżej 1 USD.

Wybitnym przykładem monety w stylu marynistycznym jest BASIS.

Wcześniej znana jako „Basecoin”, BASIS to stablecoin, który określa swoją wartość w stosunku do USD poprzez algorytmiczne korekty podaży monety. Stabilność cen osiąga się poprzez monitorowanie różnych zewnętrznych kursów walutowych weryfikowanych przez system Oracle. Jeśli BASIS handluje powyżej 1 USD, tworzone są i dystrybuowane nowe monety stablecoins. Jeśli jednak BASIS kosztuje mniej niż 1 USD, są tworzone Obligacje Bazowe, które są inną osobną walutą, tworzone i sprzedawane na aukcji otwartej w celu wycofania monet z obiegu.

Hybrid StableCoin - to dwie lub więcej krypto kategorie (Fiat, Crypto lub Zabezpieczone Maeatalami i Algorytmic StableCoin Model) wszystko zastosowane do jednego tokena.

Hybrydowe modele StableCoin przechowują wartość częściowo będącą jednocześnie aktywem, jak i modelem algorytmicznym.

Tutaj przykłady najbardziej znanych Hybrydowych Stablecoinów:

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Let's talk about backed (and not) Stablecoins - GOLD token 100% backed by gold. on: January 15, 2020, 12:34:51 PM
Simply stated 2019 was a stabelcoins year, so I thought it would be good to know more about them.

StableCoin is a cryptocurrency pegged to another asset, designed to minimize the volatility of the price of the stablecoin, relative to some "stable" asset or basket of assets.

IMPORTANCE OF STABLECOINS
Without both short-term and long-term stability, it is considered extremely risky for the mainstream public to adopt cryptocurrencies as a direct replacement for fiat or traditional assets. Larger mass adoption will always require some form of stability. From a consumer perspective, it’s risky and impractical to use cryptocurrencies for daily use. A volatile medium of exchange can compromise users' purchasing power.

Many people think about stablecoins that they are the crypto equivalent of fiat currency because of Tether (USDT) the first stablecoin which is pegged (1:1) to a dollar.
This is not true because stablecoins can be pegged to a cryptocurrency, fiat money or to exchange-traded commodities (such as precious metals or industrial metals).
I have to mention that there are also not backed stablecoins and I will explain it better later in the article.

Commodity-backed

Stablecoins backed by commodities such as precious metals (gold, silver, etc.) are much less likely to be inflated than fiat-backed stablecoins. It is harder to mine gold or silver than it is to "create money out of thin air." Holders of commodity-backed stablecoins can redeem them at the conversion rate to take possession of real assets. The cost of maintaining the stability of the stablecoin is the cost of storing and protecting the commodity backing.

The best example for commodity-backed stablecoin is GOLD (token) from the Digital Gold

GOLD is an Ethereum-based ERC20 token, convenient and instant way to store, buy, sell or transfer investment-grade gold. GOLD token is exactly what you need to purchase gold and store it digitally with complete anonymity and guaranteed protection of your assets from high volatility and loss of value. Each GOLD token is 100% backed by physical gold stored in a secure vault. Amounts of physical gold stored can be verified at any time. The Digital Gold Marketplace guarantees GOLD token's liquidity. An unlimited amount of GOLD can be purchased/redeemed on the Digital Gold Marketplace website instantly 24/7.

FIAT-backed

This is the common form of stablecoins. Fiat-backed stablecoin are fully backed by fiat money 1:1, meaning $1 of stablecoins is equivalent to $1 of fiat money. The idea is that their stablecoin is ‘backed’ by real fiat in real bank accounts. This category of stablecoins is indeed the most simple but also the most centralized. The best example is of course Tether (USDT) but today there are literally dozens of Fiat Backed stablecoins on the cryptomarket. Almost every infrastructural blockchain have issued their own stabelcoins already.

Cryptocurrency-backed

Stablecoins issued with cryptocurrencies as collateral, conceptually similar to fiat-backed stablecoins. However, the significant difference between the two designs is that while fiat collateralization typically happens off the blockchain, the cryptocurrency or crypto asset used to back this type of stablecoins is done on the blockchain, using smart contracts in a more decentralized fashion. In many cases, these work by allowing users to take out a loan against a smart-contract via locking up collateral, making it more worthwhile to pay off their debt should the stablecoin ever decrease in value. To prevent sudden crashes, a user who takes out a loan may be liquidated by the smart contract should their collateral decrease too close to the value of their withdrawal.

A prominent example of a crypto-backed stablecoin is MAKERDAO (DAI), project that has 2 separate coins: MKR & DAI. We will focus on DAI since it is a stablecoin-backed by other cryptocurrencies. Unlike other stablecoins, DAI does not rely on a centralized entity or third party since it lives completely on the blockchain. DAI is a decentralized, cryptocurrency-backed coin with a face value that is pegged to the US dollars.

ALL KINDS OF STABLECOINS

https://hackernoon.com/2019-complete-stablecoin-guide-0n9es3zab

I think that not many of you know that there are also not backed stablecoins which are worth to be mention here.

NOT BACKED STABLECOINS - redeemable in currency, commodities, or fiat money are said to be backed, whereas those tied to an algorithm are referred to as seigniorage-style (not backed).

Seigniorage-style coins - that utilize an algorithmically governed approach to expand and contract a stablecoin money supply, just like how a central bank prints or destroys money. As the total demand for the coins increases, new supply of stablecoins are created to reduce price back to stable levels. The main objective is to get the coin’s price as close as possible to USD $1.

A prominent example of a seignorage-style coin is BASIS.

Previously known as ‘Basecoin’, Basis is a stablecoin that peg its value to the USD through algorithmic adjustments of the coin’s supply. Price stability is achieved through the monitoring of various external exchange rates that are verified by an oracle system. If Basis is trading above USD $1, new stablecoins are created and distributed. If, however, Basiscoin is trading for less than USD $1, Base Bonds – which is another separate currency – are created and sold in an open auction to take coins out of circulation.

Hybrid StableCoin - is two or more of the crypto categories, (Fiat, Crypto, or Metal Collateralized and Algorithmic StableCoin Model) applied to one token.  
Hybrid StableCoin Model holds value partly being both the asset and algorithmic modeled.

Here the most known Hybrid StableCoins:
