1  Other / Off-topic / New way to solve quadratic equations on: December 11, 2019, 03:43:44 PM
American mathematician Po Shen Loh invented a new simple way to solve any quadratic equation.
We've memorized the formula for solving them. But this method doesn't require any memorization at all.
Check it out if you're interested here.
2  Other / Beginners & Help / Some problematic things about Coinbase on: November 21, 2019, 03:06:25 PM
Just a few things about using Coinbase.

Coinbase is a really popular exchange which also has a wallet feature. It's trading capacities aren't open to all the countries but the wallet function is open for all. So I see many newbies keeping their coins there because opening an account is simple, nothing much to back up etc...

1: Don't use Coinbase at all
Coinbase makes it easy for transferring coins from one account to another easy. But it's usually not recommended to use Coinbase to store any coins. Even if you have 2FA on, it's still not recommended. Because generally exchanges are rather insecure comparing to other wallets like Electrum or Coinomi. It could be hacked or might also be a scam, you can't be sure. So don't store your coins there.

2: About the verification
It is recommended to not use your IDs to verify on any website. Same goes with Coinbase. Sharing your IDs could lead to an identity theft.

3: About transferring big amounts
Sometimes Coinbase assumes your account might have some unusual behavior. So it may interrupt any transaction and can even ask for confirming your identity.
Once I deposited $600+ there. When I tried to transfer the coins, they refused to process the transaction. They sent an email stating my transaction will be done in 72 hours automatically. I cancelled the transaction. But it went through when I tried to send the money from the Coinbase app. I don't know what was the difference there.

4: The app
The app is kind of insecure. Because it doesn't even require the 2FA code to send transactions. You can be easily compromised.

So don't store your hard earned/invested money in Coinbase. If you can afford, buy a hardware wallet. If you can't, use something like Electrum and store your seeds and/or passwords on paper and keep them somewhere more secure.
Good luck guys. Smiley
3  Economy / Trading Discussion / Altcoins or Bitcoin? on: November 16, 2019, 03:58:45 PM
The fact that altcoins like ETH, BCH and others are slowly gaining more use has made me thinking. If somebody were to HODL one currency, what could it be?
A 100% altcoin portfolio? Or a 100% bitcoin portfolio?
Or do you support holding multiple crypto coin holding?
4  Other / Beginners & Help / For newbies and people seeking high paying faucet app. on: March 04, 2019, 12:19:21 PM
This post is for newbies who want to earn their first few satoshis.
There are two apps I had been using a lot. And they are

The names of those two apps are:
1. Claim Free Bitcoin
2. The Bitcoin Wheel

These are game like apps to get like upto 150 sats every 15 minutes per app.

Register in their site here. Then download those two apps and log in using the same email you used to register.

The main thing here is the "Heart Icon". It's a icon which appears on the top right corner of the two apps. When you have this, you get more rewards like upto 150 satoshis on every claim. So it's important.

The heart icon disappears after 4 plays. You have to Spin the heart wheel to get it.

To get the heart icon, click an ad on the bottom, a browser will open up. Close it with the back button and click the refresh button. Then click on the ad again, cut the browser with back button and then spin the heart wheel. If you're not too unlucky, you'll get the heart.

There's also a faucet on their site as well which pays satoshis every hour. Be sure to check that as well.

Minimum payout to CoinBase and Xapo is 20,000 satoshis and the Direct to Other wallets (Like BlockChain and is 40,000 satoshis. They pay every Friday. Follow them on twitter to get CrazyTimes (More rewards, less time)
Claim Bitcoin Network

That's all there is to it. Happy Earning.  Cheesy

6  Other / Beginners & Help / Beware from this malware. on: February 24, 2019, 09:42:37 AM
Just yesterday I was going to send some bitcoins to my friends address. He gave me his address, I copied it and went to send on my wallet. Suddenly I saw the address my friend gave me started with 3 but the address I pasted to send the transaction started with 1. I then copied other wallet addresses and pasted on notepad. And everytime it was another new address. This was some kind of clipboard hacking. Some kind of malware came into my laptop and started to do these. I think using faucets and other nsfw sites might have done this.
I scanned with my antivirus and MalwareBytes and it was resolved. But I wanted more safety so I did a full Windows re-installation.

Always try to avoid faucets with a lot of ads, don't click anything stupid, don't download anything unwanted.
And always double check addresses before sending any transaction.
7  Other / Beginners & Help / Is our crypto really safe? on: February 23, 2019, 07:19:51 AM
Hi there everyone,
This is a rather old topic...
The CEO of QuadridaCX died who was the only one to know the secret keys for the cold wallets of the exchange. Yeah, I know some people are saying it's a fake death and it was just an exit scam, but I kept thinking, what if I die today and all my crypto holdings are theoretically locked forever? And it's certain that there are people who are dead now who were holding crypto and nobody knew how to access them. These crypto assets will never be in circulation again... So how can we prevent this from happening? Is it alarming or not? Will there be any solutions in near future?

Thanks in advance.
