1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / to see is to believe on: January 17, 2021, 05:26:19 PM
I started off Bitcoin years ago, my family never believed it and said it was all a scam and I should stop (of course I didn't), when Bitcoin was making progress over the years, the influence on people starts to get stronger as time goes by, more and more are starting to believe that there is a thing called "Cryptocurrency".

From telling me to not do Bitcoin because I'm just wasting time to "son, can you teach me your knowledge about Bitcoin?", this is where I realized that Bitcoin is definitely the future to be, to see is to believe and they started to believe me, they did because they saw the value going higher and higher each year, 2020 was the year Bitcoin's value exploded to $20,000 and this was the year that they are convinced that Bitcoin is real, they were so down thinking that it's too late for them, but it really isn't and they can definitely keep up, I hope your family is convinced as well that Bitcoin is real by now and not a joke, I've opened their minds and I hope you can open your friends, or the people that matter to you, because it can definitely help them.
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Africa's Bitcoin revolution is rapidly growing on: December 23, 2020, 04:09:55 PM
Coming from Africa, I never would have thought that they'll be making good use of Bitcoin, from a country that has not been fully developed unlike the rich countries, Africa on the other hand is making rapid growth, we all know that they have fully utilized mobile money, they do not only make use of Bitcoin but cryptocurrency itself, I honestly think that with the influence of today's generation citizens of Africa, the continent will continue to develop and probably overcome poverty in the future, I am not african but I definitely am happy that the influence of Bitcoin is making a good chance for them. What about in your country? is Bitcoin creating an influence and change as well in your own country?

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / I introduced cryptocurrency to my friends by using DOGECOIN on: December 20, 2020, 03:06:17 PM
Of all cryptocurrencies, why doge? as a crypto enthusiast myself, I love sharing my experiences with Bitcoin and other cryptcies with my friends, I often get to start off my sharing with DOGECOIN rather than Bitcoin, why is it you say? Well since my friends (at least in my circle of friends) know a lot and love doge memes, I then start off the topic by talking about doge and how popular doge is, then I finally start to tackle about dogecoin being an actual digital currency (I decided to say digital currency so they'd have an idea instead of cryptocurrency) and after a short explanation they are then ought to believe with what I'm saying by showing that I am actually earning dogecoins, and after a few months, they've started planning to actually buy dogecoins and see for themselves, it's actually an easier way to make them benefit with cryptocurrency using other cryptocurrency rather than just by relying on Bitcoin.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Are there governments that are utilizing the technology of Blockchain & Bitcoin? on: December 09, 2020, 02:04:33 PM
It just came out of my curiosity, I know I can simply do a research for this but I think it's also good to talk about it here in this forum since I think we all came here to be educated and gain more knowledge about Bitcoin and other cryptos. Aside from Africa of course, What are the other governments that has aside from legalizing Bitcoin and cryptocurrency are actually using the technology of Blockchain and Bitcoin to give their economy a bigger boost? I mean, it's a good idea to legalize it and give people the freedom but I haven't seen other governments on stepping up and making good use of crypto to actually boost the economy of their country.
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / In my school, Bitcoin is now becoming a subject on: November 29, 2020, 09:49:29 AM
I don't know if we're the same but in this school year (2020-2021) Bitcoin is now being introduced to our school, although it may not be introduced to other courses, since I am currently taking Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT) hence, we are to take Bitcoin and the history of BTC. It's actually great that schools are putting Bitcoin to their curriculum, with that, I got to share my experience with Bitcoin, I got the chance to share my knowledge about the history of Bitcoin and how much I benefited from this.

I also decided to post it here because I think this is a big leap towards the future, from people doubting about Bitcoin and now, people are heavily relying on it, being informed, buying bitcoins, learning the ways on how to exactly earn bitcoins.

P.S - Okay, so for those who are asking on what country, type of school am I in, I currently live in the Philippines which is a third world country, a country that is not yet solidified when it comes to technology, and education that is not as advanced as it may seem, since we are focused on the main subjects, Bitcoin and the technology of Blockchain has unlikely entered, well, educationally speaking, but my school (a college institute) and probably many more has started off talking about Blockchain, there are no downsides to this since we are only talking about it and studying but they're not encouraging students just yet to become enthusiastic about Bitcoin, probably in the future.
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / A cryptocurrency entirely dedicated to GAMBLING? on: December 15, 2018, 03:57:36 PM
An idea came onto my mind, and it consists about a currency that is entirely dedicated onto gambling and also betting, I did not search through the web if there is actually a crypto that has done this. Gambling is a thing that the people love to do, whether if it is in the casino or online, but have you ever thought of a crypto that will serve as your main currency whether if it is in the casino or it is on online, I think this could also be beneficial for the gamblers as well, I wanna know about what you think of my idea, whether if it is a positive or negative opinion, I will still take it.
7  Economy / Gambling discussion / What cryptocurrency would you engage to gamble in? on: August 29, 2018, 08:37:25 AM
I've seen a lot of people talk about BTC gambling, but is it that there are lots of cryptocurrencies to gamble in and not only Bitcoin? Although I know the answer for this, and maybe a lot of people as well know the answer to this, but I'd leave the answers to those who are eager to enlighten those who have little knowledge and information about this.

So what do you think? What cryptocurrency should be recognized and should be gambled with?
8  Economy / Gambling discussion / Beginner's Luck on: August 16, 2018, 07:48:17 AM
Let's talk about something like this, what is the first thing that comes into your mind whenever you hear about the word "Beginner's Luck", Well, I'm here to share one of my experiences back then when I was new to gambling, It was nasty, I had a great time gambling in my first day at the casino, I was very shy and was definitely scared to lose my money if things didn't go out well, but luckily, I had the opposite thing that I was expecting, there was no strategy used, I simply just played, and I honestly won a lot of games, and have made a lot of profit, they called me a beginner with luck in my hands, socialized with the people around me, and have made a lot of progress in gambling, though I do not have settled my mind in full-time gambling and will try to limit myself as much as possible.

How about you? What were your experiences back then when you were still starting to learn how to gamble?
9  Economy / Speculation / Bitcoin on the LOW! on: August 08, 2018, 02:57:57 PM
August 8, 2018, Bitcoin is ongoing, the flow is outrageous as some people have said, the price continues to go down, the price exactly went down today at $6,401.30, A lot of people are panicking and are being boggled by the price, and I think that most of these people who are panicking right now are probably those who are not informed, and those who are just going with the flow of what the community thinks about the current state of BTC. You guys need to completely calm down and stop making your own opinionated statements about BTC's future and of its price, now it is obvious that even if a lot of people will think that the price is completely fine, and will improve soon, sadly, on the other hand a lot of people are inventing or making these false accusations, generally speaking, some people in the forum are completely making doubtful thoughts about BTC's progression, some may say that the price will go way down and will continuously go down, until it DIES. And I just cannot believe my eyes, a lot of people have panicked, selled their holdings right away, and are just straight up scared with the current situation right now, and lastly before you reply, be sure to check legitimate websites that are exclusively giving updates on what to know and what to avoid during these kinds of situation, and most likely to check the price and flow as well.

Give some additional statements about this, correct me if I am wrong in some parts, it would be a big help.

10  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / HARDWARE WALLETS: WHAT IS IT FOR? on: July 25, 2018, 09:40:08 AM
Giving you additional information on what you need to know, probably most of you out there have heard about a HARDWARE WALLET before, and I think I can help you out with some information you may need and why you should buy yourselves a hardware wallet.

WHY SHOULD I BUY A HARDWARE WALLET?
Probably most of us are using software wallets; Coinbase, Electrum, Bitpay, Jaxx, and etc. I'm not totally saying that you should spend some money and buy a hardware wallet, In my own opinion, I do think that software wallets will give you security in keeping your bitcoins (or whatever that you are holding), but I don't think it will be enough for you to keep it without getting robbed, it is not HACK-PROOF, which means you cannot assure yourself that it won't get hacked, numerous people have been robbed through their software wallets, and some people have lost everything in just a glimpse, you can search from it on the web, google, bing, or the search engine that you'd prefer, go there and search for cases about BTC, and it actually has numerous cases of people getting robbed from their software wallet.

WHY SHOULD YOU BUY A HARDWARE WALLET?
Hardware wallets are indeed one of the best but there, hardware wallets can keep you safe and will take your holding even if you are not online, keys are extremely secured, hardware wallets may seem to cost you, but you should consider it despite that it will give you extra security, a lot of my friends actually own a hardware wallet and ever since they bought one, they never complained to me, it's hassle free, and you won't be worried about your holdings, since you'll be the one who's responsible about your hardware wallet. Now there are youtube videos and these hardware wallets' official websites, I highly recommend you guys try it out, here are one of the most knowned and trusted hardware wallets out of all.

Ledger Nano S: www.ledgerwallet.com
Trezor: www.trezor.io
KeepKey: www.keepkey.com

These hardware wallets are one of my most prerferrable wallets as of now, watch some youtube videos and see for yourself!

THANK YOU! FEEL FREE TO REPLY AND GIVE YOUR OWN INSIGHTS AND OPINIONS ABOUT HARDWARE WALLETS.


11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / BITCOIN won't die, period. on: July 05, 2018, 02:54:29 PM
As you can see that BTC is the largest crypto among all in the market, I just really do not understand why people like to claim that BTC is about to die, do not easily fall for these kinds of topics and think that Bitcoin is dying, put some research on it, its just another person's opinion but again it is misleading. One last thing before you reply, this is extremely important and might be a big help for you (especially for newbies) avoid agreeing with such wrong info given to you, be sure to take extra care in replying, and the most important part of all is that you should make some research and do not forget to read the thread (if necessary) it is also important as you can gain new information from other people, though just make sure that what you are reading is very much legitimate.


Thank you and feel free to respond, I wanna see your insights about this.
12  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / Hardware Wallets vs. Software Wallets on: July 01, 2018, 01:41:49 AM
Give me 2-3 minutes of your time to explain what software wallet is and what hardware wallet is, Now I am just going to give you guys the exact information about what software wallet and what hardware wallet is.

Software Wallets - A software wallet is a software program that stores private and public keys and interacts with various blockchain to enable users to send and receive digital currency and monitor their balance. If you want to use Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency, you will need to have a digital wallet.

Hardware Wallets - A hardware wallet is a special type of bitcoin wallet which stores the user's private keys in a secure hardware device. They have major advantages over standard software wallets: private keys are often stored in a protected area of a microcontroller, and cannot be transferred out of the device in plaintext.

Now I have searched this information clearly on Google and I have to say that the info is quite clear and easy to understand right? Anyways there are also other wallets and not only hardware and software, there are also hot wallets, cold wallets and desktop wallets and many more types of wallets out there, but for now let's talk about these 2 types of wallets which is the hardware and the software, which one do you prefer?


Edit: Please do refer to the replies below as their information is more accurate than what I have shown above.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Which altcurrency do you think has potential? on: June 30, 2018, 02:02:52 PM
Now before you reply read this carefully, Altcurrencies are being made almost every month, and right now there are over 300+ altcurrencies in the market right now, I did not made this topic because I'm going to endorse some altcurrency, I wrote this topic because I want you to give me and the people around the forum about your speculations about which cryptocurrency has potential, clearly there are tons of cryptos to choose on and I want you to take a closer look on every alt in the market, and if you do have chosen an alt that you'll want to share with us then feel free to reply on this thread, goodluck and may this information spread even more.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / MiO - Miner One ICO: A revolutionary ICO on: May 03, 2018, 06:07:18 PM
First and foremost I am not advertising nor promoting this ICO. I just feel like this ICO is kinda promising and seems to be taking the game to a next level, miner one is clever since they have focused on Youtube, youtube is one of the most used apps through a month, and one of the modt clever things Miner One has done, aside from that the advertisement's quality is very much edited well, and the content is also on the top.

I decided to make this topic because I am pretty much sure some of you out there uses youtube for their own reasons. Here is a brief info about miner one and who runs this ICO, also here is the link to their advertisement.


MINER ONE'S AD: https://youtu.be/-ELO4unQ5KM
What Is Miner One? What is the difference between Miner One and other ICOs?

Miner One is a community of people who want to mine cryptocurrency profitably by combining resources to achieve savings on cutting-edge equipment, professional maintenance, and ultra-low-cost electricity. We are conducting an Initial Coin Offering, or “ICO”, to raise funds and build the World’s Biggest Crowdfunded Crypto Mining Operation. The Miner One “coin” will be the MIO Token. Once Miner One is built and mining cryptocurrency, MIO Holders will all share the output based on the MIO Tokens each holds. ICOs are used to fundraise for many different kinds of projects.

Lastly I wanna know your insights about this ICO is it gonna be great or is it gonna be another failure.

15  Economy / Speculation / Predictions: BITCOIN'S FUTURE on: April 27, 2018, 07:58:34 AM
As of now bitcoin is running unstable, so as the prics of it in the market, as months pass by the price of bitcoin goes up and down, nothing is bad if we would give predictions about bitcoin's future and other cryptocurrencies, but for now let's focus on bitcoin and it's possible outcomes after 5 years or so.

Feel free to reply, I also am eager to see and view your insights about the future of bitcoin.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin bubble burst? What is it? on: April 15, 2018, 04:05:49 AM
The main topic right now is the bitcoin bubble burst, what is it? I posted this topic for the junior members or people in this forum who are not familiar to the bubble burst, and what are the effects of it to bitcoin.

What is a bubble burst? Because it is often difficult to observe intrinsic values in real-life markets, bubbles are often conclusively identified only in retrospect, once a sudden drop in prices has occurred. Such a drop is known as a crash or a bubble burst.

I wanna know your insights about this, and I do wish I helped some people out there and I hope you understand more about bitcoin in an economical way.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / What does bitcoin need to improve? on: February 14, 2018, 05:29:10 PM

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What is the best altcoin for you? on: February 11, 2018, 02:57:43 AM
I've seen a lot of cryptocurrencies trying to top off bitcoin with their benefits in investing and having wallets. Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin and many more, but as far as I know these altcoins are doing their very best to dethrone bitcoin, as of now I wanna know about these altcoins more, I wanna know what would be the best cryptocurrency for you, remove bitcoin on the list, what is the best altcoin after bitcoin? Give me your insights about it.
20  Other / Off-topic / Bitcoin in the future? Your thoughts about it? on: February 11, 2018, 02:49:29 AM
I've seen that there are new cyptocurrencies going out, starting new ICO's new cryptos and more, but what about bitcoin, what about satoshis, they are the ones who started digital currency, and I am eager to know what are your thoughts and insights about bitcoin in the mere future, I need your opinions about this, bitcoin is gaining a lot of attention right now, and I can see two (2) sides of what bitcoin will look like in the future, but before that I wanna know what'd be your opinions about this.
