Hi theymos,

I wanted to open this public thread just to ask you if it is possible to post the current forum finances. Basically a thread/update like this :

Thanks for the attention.
Quoting the post of July 2016.

Hi theymos,

is still (or again) possible to know the forum finances updated to 2017 like the last time?

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / [Prediction Market] CryptoForecast [CFT] on: March 21, 2017, 07:28:38 PM

CryptoFORECAST a prediction markets tool, which is able to anticipate a future movement of the price of BTC. It's a useful tool for the professional trader and not, the investor and any person has something to do with the sale of BTC. The application is able to predict what the price will most likely be, due to the historical data connected together with the volatility, we can position ourselves correctly on the right side of the market.

We would like to clarify that it is not an oracle, the Forecast is based on statistics, it is not 100% certain that the future projection is correct, and that the graphic structure is identical.

The application is based as well as the volatility also on seasonality and as we know the seasons are divided into 4 parts: winter, spring, summer, autumn.
Statistically we know that in the winter we are facing the cold, the cold dampens the arrival of spring bringing the summer, but it is not certain that the spring should make beautiful days, it may be happe some years where winter is prolonged for weeks, thus postponing the spring and the first initial warm.

The Forecast precisely gives us a future trend of what the price in the past has done during those specified periods of time and will give us a future projection, but it may be happen that the movement advances or postponement of a few days. As happens in nature also happens in the financial markets, we are governed by the same laws, therefore we have to adapt every day to what is really happening in the real market; News, environmental disasters, government announcements, and any other drivers are able to have enough power to move the market so "unnatural".

The engine behind the application is the PILLAR algorithm. It was created from scratch by the development team after months of testing, we had a first draft in August 2016, and we have understood the potential that can have long-term application in which we are working with data that do not reach beyond the 5 years (we could get to 7 years, but the tests were not satisfactory as the first 2 years are no reliable data as to create a projection), we think that tool could get your hands on in the years ahead, with broader historical that arrivals example to 10 years and consequently more data to be able to process by reducing the margins of error.

But now let's see how it actually works the application and set it in that way.

DASHBOARD: We have our dashboard where there will be information about subscriptions, starting date and the end, the balance of our CFT's (CryptoForecast Token), there will be a history of season tickets purchased, the BTC price in real time and more Tweet recent. There will be a form for additional requests, we will try to please all if there will be a majority.

GENERATE: The module is extremely simple, it is so intuitive that it is almost trivial, but behind this so simple mask hides the complexity of the algorithm which is the heart of the Forecast.

BTC Market: Right now the only choice is Bitstamp.
Why we chose Bitstamp? For the fact that it is the market with the best historical in USD currency. We will be implement other markets, such as EUR - CNY. If you've read our roadmap to Altcoin we will also add DASH, XMR, LTC, ETH ...

Time Frame: The choice of the time frame is important in the temporal arc base chosen, there is the possibility to choose between H1, H4,1D (1W will be implemented soon) Here we would like to add a point. There will be the possibility to add the time frame most low (5-15 min.) This feature will be implemented in the following months. There are more details in the White Paper.

Start Date: Start date, the point at which you want to start predicting Ex. 2017/3/1.

End Date: End Date, time you've set the time span of prediction Ex.  2017/3/20

History: The History is the choice of the past years that the algorithm will interrogate and process. There are currently available only two years, will be implement soon History of 3-5 years.

Taking for example the two years the application will develop according to the market, the timeframe, and the range of septate dates previously the last two years (2016-2015)

Use STD: This parameter is the standard deviation with the ability to activate and deactivate the prediction. The Standard deviation does not change radically the structure of prediction but it gives you a clear signal that there has been more volatility over time chosen..

CHART: From the Chart section we find the prediction that we just created.

NoSTD: (Bitstamp --> H4 --> 2017/3/1 ñ 2017/3/20 --> 2 --> No STD)

It STD: This  is the forecast with the standard deviation on, you can see how the graph changes but not in a radical way and tells you the days when you can expect more volatility than usual.

Comparison Forecast and real price of Bitstamp.

As we said earlier, we can not expect an identical movement whenever we create a forecast, but we can see visually that the price structure is very similar, and that we have it in advance.

It will be available a demo of three days in the period crowfunding.

I'm not part of the CryptoForecast team.

12  Other / Meta / Why don't allow us to hide also the last activity? on: July 22, 2016, 11:22:15 AM
I don't know if it was already requested before, but I would like to request the admin if he can add the possibility to hide also the last activity/active day.
Because I think the forum should allow us to have more privacy and display our last activity isn't (imho) good but maybe I'm wrong, I know we can hide our forum status but it's not quite useful if we can't also hide our last active day/activity.

PS:Please try to stay on topic, the paid signature ad. spammers aren't welcome.

"Turkish military have sealed off bridges in Istanbul saying they have taken control of the country, as the Prime Minister confirms a coup attempt is underway.

Binali Yildirim added that the military are acting outside the chain of command and security forces are working to resolve the situation. “The government elected by the people remains in charge. This government will only go when the people say so,” he remarked. He said those responsible for the attempted coup will ‘pay the highest price’."


265 dead. ((other source says only 20 coup forces killed) gov-source: 104 coup forces, ~40 civilians, ~161 pro-gov forces [117 unknown combatants, 41 police, 2 soldiers])
1,600+ injured.
3000+ soldiers arrested

15  Other / Politics & Society / Nice terror attack: lorry driver who killed 84 (10 children) during Bastille Day on: July 14, 2016, 10:43:16 PM
A French-Tunisian criminal well known to the police for armed attacks used a hired lorry to kill at least 84 people in a terrorist attack during Bastille Day celebrations in Nice, it has emerged.

At least 10 children are among the dead in the Riviera city following a "cowardly and barbaric" atrocity believed to have been carried out by a 30-year-old attacker, who left at least one British national among the injured. Officials fear the death toll will rise.

As hundreds remained in hospital - including 18 fighting for their lives in intensive care - anti-terrorist judges opened an investigation into "mass murder" and investigators searched the home of the driver in the Abattoirs area of Nice.


AT LEAST one Briton is among the hundreds injured after a man ploughed a lorry full of explosives into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in Nice in a confirmed terror attack which has left 84 dead.

What's wrong in writing 'watching , very interesting' ?  I wanted to follow that thread so I posted on it. My post respects the forum rules, so what's the problem?

Waiting a reply from the staff member who deleted it, thanks.

PS: a notice for the other users, check firstly all the others reply before reply here Wink.

Hey guys, few minutes ago I've received this pm :

!!! WARNING: This user is a newbie. If you are expecting a message from a more veteran member, then this is an imposter !!!

Hi redsn0w

I replied to your thread :

Can you ban this stupid user ? From the seclog page I can see :

 - March 10, 2016, 08:44:16 PM - Benito Finito - password reset via email

so I don't know if it is an hacked account or if it is the real owner.

Don't click the site and most important don't login, it's a phishing page ( that will steal your access data).
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / EU Plans To End Anonymity For Bitcoin And Prepaid Card Users on: February 28, 2016, 12:21:33 PM

There’s a plan of the European Commission, which will be proposed in June, which will try to end the anonymity of virtual currencies, such as Bitcoin, and prepaid cards. The reason the European Union wants this new policy is that they need to fight terrorism more efficiently. However, the Europol just released a report, which says that terrorists are not using virtual currencies, especially Bitcoins, for funding their operations. They are not even using the dark net, they mostly use social media websites to spread their messages. ....
