1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What is happening with EOS? on: July 12, 2019, 09:52:43 PM
Guys, what is wrong with EOS?

It has lost almost 50% of its value within just a few weeks. Is there something bad going on with it that I don't know about?
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / LIBRA - Strategy for world domination on: June 27, 2019, 09:41:02 PM
Is Libra the first step for Facebook to take control of the world?

Lets think about the facts:
- Facebook has 1/3 of the world as its user base (2.4 billion users)
- Libra coin will be very easily accessible to all of facebooks users
- Libra coin will be a stable coin, price will not fluctuate providing users in 3rd world countries with a medium to store their wealth.

There are already countries (like venezuela) where a national financial crisis caused fiat money to lose all worth. In desperation people are moving their life savings to bitcoin... Considering that bitcoin is a hard resource for the average person to use, imagine how quick adoption of Libra will be. Libra will be available to use on every cheap smartphone. Developed by Facebook it is sure to be a very user friendly experience, everyone will be able to use Libra. People will use it like real money in every possible way through things like facebook messenger, online shops, international transfers, peer to peer transfers...

Facebook has penetrated our lives in almost all possible ways; relationships, news, entertainment, social gatherings, advertising... the list goes on. The only thing facebook still doesn't have control over is our money. Here comes Libra...  

The snowball is rolling, it can not be stopped.

Imagine the world in 20, maybe 50 years.

With the addition of Libra, and a very smart plan for user adoption Facebook can rise to a position of such great power, that it will be in control of the whole world.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Javascript miner as a source of traffic revenue for websites? on: September 18, 2017, 07:05:15 PM
Hey Guys,

I've come across this article:

To summarise for the lazy ones, piratebay has done a 24 hour trial, where they CPU mined Monero with a javascript app executed automatically on website visitors

What do you think, could it be that such js mining apps will one day take over as the main way of monetising website traffic (opposed to adverts)

Let me know what you think!
4  Economy / Trading Discussion / OKcoin inward SWIFT payment fee? on: January 20, 2015, 05:29:02 AM
Does anyone have some experience on what the inward SWIFT payment fee is for using OKcoin?

My bank does free international money transfers (swift/wire payments) to any bank, in any country, so the only fees I am liable for are the inward fees OKcoin's bank levies.

As the website doesn't indicate what these could be, does anyone have any indication from previous deposits?
