1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Binance raised withdrawal fees again? on: April 09, 2021, 04:27:49 AM
The withdrawal fees were changed from 0 to 0.2 a month ago for the withdrawal of USDT as TRC20. I went with withdrawing some USDT from binance to Kucoin to buy some velo but the withdrawal fees taken were $1. It's absurd how much binance is charging for withdrawal when the fees from blockchain are most probably free for binance as they are super representative on tron blockchain. 
I use binance for it's cheaper transaction fees but these these unnecessary withdrawal fees are going to be a push factor as newer exchanges too are coming with aggressive promotions.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Bahamas becomes the next nation to launch National Digital Currency on: October 21, 2020, 02:42:39 AM
Central bank of Bahamas has launched the National Digital Currency. It's a distributed ledger, blockchain based technology but the coins would be regulated and minted by the central bank. Similar to what many other countries have launched.
Called the sand dollar, its price would be pegged to Bahamian dollar and would be used for domestic transaction across the island nation. The users would need to go through a KYC first and the transaction fees are told to be negligible.

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Chinese central bank to airdrop 10 million digital yuan on: October 11, 2020, 05:09:24 PM
It's not for everybody though. The Chinese city Shenzhen, often referred as Silicon Valley of China, would distribute 10 million yuan ($2 million) worth of new Chinese digital currency to 50,000 of it's lucky residents. The people would be put into a lottery to bring out the winners.
It is done to test the new system and boost the adoption and use of Chinese Digital Yuan currency. The Chinese digital Yuan is already accepted in a number of retails.

What is digital fast?

Giving up all digital devices for a short period of time, such as a day or up to a week.

Why digital fast?


There are many reasons why you might want to give up your mobile phone and other devices for a brief time. You might want to enjoy time to yourself without the interference that your phone and other devices create. In other cases, you might feel like your device use has become excessive and is adding too much stress to your life.

In some situations, you might even feel like you are addicted to your devices. While technology addiction is not formally recognized as a disorder in the DSM-5, many experts believe that tech and device overuse represents a very real behavioral addiction that can lead to physical, psychological, and social problems.

Signs You Might Need a Digital Detox


  • You feel anxious or stressed out if you can't find your phone
  • You feel compelled to check your phone every few minutes
  • You feel depressed, anxious, or angry after spending time on social media
  • You are preoccupied with the like, comment, or reshare counts on your social posts
  • You’re afraid that you'll miss something if you don't keep checking your device
  • You often find yourself staying up late or getting up early to play on your phone
  • You have trouble concentrating on one thing without having to check your phone

Reference: https://www.verywellmind.com/why-and-how-to-do-a-digital-detox-4771321

I'm going on a 48 hours digital fast starting from the time of this post. I'll not be using any electric or electronic devices including electric lights, digital heating/cooling, digital cooking device, switching off both electricity mains and phone/router connection.
I know It may seem extreme, but I need to make sure I'm in control of myself.

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / US Lawmakers want's a National Digital Currency on: October 03, 2019, 03:23:10 PM
Two Republican Lawmakers French hill and Bill foster wrote a formal letter to the FED asking about the plans of a Digital dollar and proposing it.
PDF to the letters

Facebook's Libra has been mentioned to justify the need
"The Facebook/Libra proposal, if implemented, could remove important aspects of financial governance outside of US jurisdiction."

“We are concerned that the primacy of the U.S. Dollar could be in long-term jeopardy from wide adoption of digital fiat currencies. Internationally, the Bank for International Settlements conducted a study that found that over 40 countries around the world have currently developed or are looking into developing a digital currency.”

“With the potential for digital currencies to further take on the characteristics and utility of paper money, it may become increasingly imperative that the Federal Reserve take up the project of developing a U.S. dollar digital currency.”

Would it influence the FED to release a block-chain based currency? What are you thoughts on them?
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Binance Announces Venus project to put fiat into blockchain on: August 20, 2019, 01:25:59 AM
Binance doesn't need an introduction and they have come up with a project called venus which aims to develop regional stablecoins pegged to fiat or putting the fiat of an entire country into blockchain and hence preventing other stablecoins being used under it's jurisdiction.
It is being said that this project is a counter to Libra and their motive of being a global coin.

While this could increase the adoption, this could also make crypto more similar to the current online payment systems. What's your take on this?
