1  Other / Beginners & Help / How much has the lock-down due to the pandemic been able to benefit you? on: April 05, 2020, 06:42:56 PM
it's no longer news that most countries are still experiencing the lock-down rule, most especially for those that are trying to curtail the further spread of the COVID-19.
Those who want to be busy still, even while trying to stay safe are staying glued to the internet trying to learn one or two things and to probably work from home.

This is a period where we now have more time to learn new things, most especially those who still need to get accustomed to how this forum works.
Since I am not going to work offline for this period, I have been able to have more time for myself, to move around this forum, visit different sections and threads, to read more than typing. So, that when I later get busy with my offline work, after the whole pandemic might have subsided, I would be able to find things much easier than I used to.

Time management, therefore, is very essential.

So, as a newbie or an already established member, how have you been able to manage your time on this forum?

However, I would like to use this opportunity to show my sincere concern for those who are already affected by the pandemic, I wish you all quick recovery. One thing I want you to know is that there is nothing without a beginning that does not have an end. There will surely be an end to COVID-19 soon.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / The success of a project is not the responsibility of bounty hunters alone on: March 28, 2020, 10:04:58 PM
I have come across some people who said/say, "Bounty hunters have nothing to contribute to our projects."
                                                                                                 OR
                                                              "We did not see the impact of bounty hunters on our project, therefore we are not paying them or better still we will reduce their reward."
                                                                                                 OR
                                                              " There are no investors on this forum."

These are all flimsy excuses given by the team whose projects failed.
They forgot to ask themselves if their projects are truly presentable or if their project has what it takes to convince the interests of potential investors.

The duty of a bounty hunter is not to get money out of the pocket of an investor to invest in a project, rather, it is to just create awareness about the project. E.g, by wearing the signature and avatar of the project on the forum. This will only call the attention of the investor. It is now left for such a project to showcase the stuff it is made of. If it contains nothing meaningful, I am sorry, it might not succeed, no matter how much awareness or marketing is done. Only very few projects scale through this without good substance, which is now very rare.

Gone are the days that investors invest blindly. They now take their time to study and analyze the project before giving out their money.
If you notice, people come on the telegram groups of projects to ask questions and if they are not satisfied, they leave.

Therefore, bounty hunters should not be blamed if a project fails, rather, the developers should go back to the drawing board and correct whatever needs to be corrected. Better still, they should ensure that they have done what is needed to be done, before coming to present what they have for the crypto community.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Good ICOs should be protected from dump on: December 21, 2018, 07:43:41 AM
After careful research, when you see a good ICO, you would know and there will be no doubt about it.
I have noticed that good ICOs also dump after listing, competing with crap ones that have no definite direction, but to cart away funds.
There are ways in which they can be protected and prevent unreasonable dump in price. Some of which are:

1. They should be managed by credible and trusted managers, managers that already have good reputation on the forum, else the trust might not be there.

2. KYC should be made mandatory for all bounty and airdrop participants in order to avoid multiple accounts. The kyc should be announced

3. Participants should be made to complete the remaining process of their registrations on the project's website, where IP can be detected. Multiple accounts can also be prevented this way.

4. Listing should be done on reliable and reputable exchange sites.

5. There should be regular and prompt communication with the community.

6. Projects should maintain and comply to their roadmaps and if there is amendment, the community should be made to know, with concrete reasons.

Additional suggestion:
7. An approach that will create the demand for tokens, which can as well prevent dump, is the lockup of certain percentage of the tokens.
Some percentage of the tokens belonging to; the team, advisors, investors, promoters and bounty participants.
The main tokens for the investors should be released, at least to compensate them for the money invested, but their bonuses should be locked for certain period of time. Which is followed by their gradual release.

These are just few among so many other solutions, but if this few are integrated into the system, i believe dump can be minimized if not totally eliminated.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Do not pay attention of FUDDERS at this time on: November 21, 2018, 05:22:21 PM
I came across a crypto news channel today, NewsBTC, saying that Ethereum will dump more.
https://www.newsbtc.com/2018/11/21/icos-yet-to-liquidate-all-of-their-ethereum-could-another-drop-be-imminent/

Do not listen to them, they are FUDDERS.
They are opportunists, looking for those who would dump at ridiculous prices, so that they can buy all that you have and wait for another pump.

The reason they gave was "ICOs are yet to dump their Eth and that they are about to dump, therefore dump yours too."
This to me is ridiculous and are trying to take advantage of noobs.

ICOs that wanted to dump, would have done that before this time. Therefore, none of them will think it wise to dump when the price is this low.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / The energy that drives patience on: October 16, 2018, 10:25:19 AM
Patience is not just the ability to wait, but how we behave while we wait.

Behavior is a very important factor or energy that determines if your patience will be maintained.

The crypto market can sometimes be different from what we thought or expected it would be, there might be delay in getting rewards from bounty participated in, postponement in listing on exchanges alongside other challenges faced and these might bring about some doubt, most especially when it seems the delay keeps lingering.

Therefore, our ability to tolerate difficulties, delays, annoyance without getting upset, will determine if truly we can be patient.

Being able to overcome all these require some energy and the energy is embedded in our ability or the behaviour that guides patience.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Reasons you should avoid selling out of panic on: October 03, 2018, 11:42:18 AM
One of the peculiar attributes of most crypto enthusiasts is selling out of panic. Whenever this happens, it is accompanied by some flaws and setbacks. Reasons why you should avoid selling out of panic are:

1. Dump in price - Sometimes, it does not affect the price of the coin you are dumping alone, it can also affect the general market prices coins, most especially when there is massive dump of prominent coins such as, bitcoin, ethereum and so on.

2. Loss of Investment - you are likely going to loose your investment, because most times, when you panic sell, you sell at lower prices than required. Your profit might be affected, so also your invested capital.

3. Attack on blockchain technology - it might call on attacks on blockchain technology from different quarters. You begin to see people spread more negative news about blockchain and cryptocurrency. For instance, people may begin to talk of crash, scam and so on.

4. Emotional Imbalance: panic alongside the accompanying losses might lead to emotional imbalance in some investors and afterwards the resulting effect on health, such as hypertension and other health implications.

Some people attribute FUDs and perhaps regulations to most of these flaws, which are not. Even though there are FUDs being spread, if we do not panic, the crypto space will be a safe haven for investment.
How many proposed regulations these days have really been implemented? So, why are we bothering ourselves? Some countries such as China, that even succeeded in some of their regulations, does not seem to avoid the crypto world in entirety.

Those who cause panic mainly know that most people cannot control it. Which is why those who take advantage of it, use it as a weapon in the crypto space for their gains.

Note:
I am not telling you not to sell whenever you notice there is going to be bearish market, but take your time to relax and think about it, make your calculations and if you are sure there will be bearish market, sell and buy back when you are also sure it is low enough.


7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Avoid being driven by greed on: September 26, 2018, 09:16:40 PM
Greed is the root of downfall. Most of those that have left the crypto space today or that have lost hope in cryptocurrency were mostly driven by greed.
This happens sometimes when some are trading, they would see profit, but will decide not to pick it. Instead, they will be looking for 1000% profit. Little do they no that no matter how a coin increases in price, it will still retrace.
Pick your profit with all modesty and allow others to take it up from there. Do not be greedy to feel you can take all the profit for that trade.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Experience is the best teacher on: September 26, 2018, 08:22:03 PM
If the adage "Experience is the best teacher" is applicable in different spheres of life, it is definitely applicable in the cryptospace. Those who have been in this space for quite sometimes now will be able attest to the fact that the experience they have had through encounters with different projects and coins on different exchanges, is now helping them to be able to identify at least to an extent both genuine and scam projects.
What could have aided this could be due to the fact that there is no regulatory body, alongside other reasons in the cryptosphere.
So, the more your level of exposure, the more your experience and the better you become.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / BTT forum is a fertile ground on: May 15, 2018, 09:12:12 AM
With the little time i have spent on this forum, i have come to realize that bitcointalk forum is a fertile ground. My reasons for saying this are as follows:

1. The forum is rich in knowledge. This is a place where whoever is a newbie to crypto, can have access to different kinds of information, most especially when it pertains to cryptocurrency and other areas.

2. This is a place where people are built. Spending your time and effort here is never a waste. Ever since i started accessing this forum, i have gained more and i am better than before.

3. This is a place where the standard of living of some folks have been improved. Many now earn a good living through this forum. 

4. It is a safe place to be when it come to crypto, because if any one brings in anything phishy, there are experts who would raise alarm and hinder any fraudulent practice.

5. Considering the latest restructuring of the merit system, it has helped a lot of people to improve on their vocabulary and their posts.

Lastly, i would like to thank the initiator of this forum and those behind the management as well as the moderators of the forum for this wonderful opportunity. I believe this forum will continue to take the lead and be an inspiration to other forums.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Strong Hands Vs Weak Hands on: May 08, 2018, 09:12:59 AM
The world of crypto comprises of two classes of people, the WEAK HANDS and the STRONG HANDS.
-Early dumpers and those who dump at prices lower than the ICO price of any coin, are known as weak hands.
-While those who hold a coin(s) until prices increase to appreciable level are know as the strong hands.

This is a humble call to all investors, most especially bounty hunters. Let us endeavour to hold whatever token/coin we earn or better still if you want to dump early, do not dump at prices below the ICO price of any coin.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / HONEST bounty hunters should be treated with respect on: May 01, 2018, 09:00:55 PM
I have seen situations where bounty hunters are side-tracked after providing their services towards the success of ICO projects. It is either they are paid less as against initial agreement, or they are not paid at all. I would have mentioned the names of some of those projects, which succeeded, are already listed and yet did not pay bounty hunters. Some things really need to change. We are to be treated with respect, most especially the honest bounty hunters.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / HODL while you can on: April 30, 2018, 12:55:19 PM
Although, whatever has advantage, also has disadvantage. Ever since i have been into crypto, i noticed that holding coins is more beneficial than immediate trading away of the coin you have.
These are some of the ways in which you can hold successfully:
1. Research the coin you plan to hold. For instance, some traded away their coins. earlier, not knowing the great benefit(s) behind the technology. Research would have helped out in this.
2. Diversify your holdings. Do not hold just one coin.
3. Monitor your holdings on exchanges on daily basis. If possible, on hourly basis, because you cannot but tell when it will moon well.
4. Look for updates on your holdings through social media.
5. Sell high at the right time and buy low at the right time. Then hodl again.

When you keep up with the cycle, you will definitely be happy to be a holder.

Do not mind my grammatical errors please.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Do what you know how to do best on: April 29, 2018, 04:27:54 PM
We cannot under estimate the cognitive aspect of cryptocurrency. There are different ways by which you can make your earnings through cryptocurrency. Lookout for the one of interest, learn it and do it well, like know not others. Some of the different aspects are as outlined:
1. Trading
2. ICO investment
3. Bounty
4. Airdrop
5. Mining
Although, there are other ways, but these five areas of specializations are very common.
You may try other aspects, but pick one and do it well like a professional.

Do not mind my grammatical errors please, i am only trying to help the newbies...
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Market has woken up on: April 23, 2018, 08:26:20 PM
It seems to be a new era for crypto market again. The percentage growth rate of most coins is increasing. For instance, Bitcoin Cash has risen over 80% in the last
week.
