1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Have you guys heard of Travelflex? on: September 16, 2018, 05:15:59 PM
I'm considering buying TRF while it's so cheap. They are one of the few coins to switch to DAG which makes them one of the fastest on the market at under 30 second transfers. I hear they are working on going on a new exchange as well. Have you guys looked into this project?
2  Economy / Trading Discussion / Why does anyone care about BTC ETF? on: September 11, 2018, 12:15:56 PM
I'm no expert but why does everyone make such a big deal about something that many experts have warned would have a negative impact on the price? It's almost like people need the blessing of "big brother" to feel ok about something. This is supposed to be decentralized people, you want regulations then go invest in stocks. Am I outta line here?
3  Other / Politics & Society / Are we entering a new dark ages? on: September 09, 2018, 05:23:49 PM
In my estimation, the decline began in the mid-90's. Or as soon as Bush Sr. took the thrown. It's hard to pinpoint the exact moment but it doesn't matter. Things took another sudden dark turn in 2016 with the craziest election I have ever witnessed. The country, and even the world, especially the western world, is split down the middle. The "news" and most media took sides, mainly one side. Now cryptocurrency is under attack. Sites like Hostgator and others refuse service. So divided are we that whatever group you may be a part of, Facebook, forums, even establishments, bars, and workplaces try to monitor how you feel and what you believe and say just as fascists do. And they will question you. If you don't tow their party line, whether it makes sense or not, you almost surely WILL be rejected from the group or kicked out of the establishment or even fired. It happens every day. A recent example is how I started a group in a forum and built it up to 7700 members. After I posted my opinion about gentrification and proliferation of extremists in my neighborhood, I came back to find that my group was given to others, without even a warning. It's a total shutout. After 2016 I figured this was just a bizarre faze that will pass. However the non-s insanity seems to be increasing. Censorship of opinions, hatred, violence, racism, and hypocrisy are the new norm. And this infantile behavior is being taught in schools, not to mention the detestable sexualization of children. They can't avoid the messages. On top of this, the economy shows signs of cracking, and few even show concern when threats of nuclear war are all too frequent. Do you feel this is just a bubble or is this the beginning of the end of "civilization" or was that just a veneer all along and the animal side is now winning over?
4  Economy / Service Discussion / Hostgator the bitcoin haters. on: September 09, 2018, 03:48:38 PM
I signed up and paid for a hostgator plan. They wanted me to send in two pieces of ID which I did. Just becuase of the domain name, the fraud department contacted me asking the following:

Then just hours later, before I even had a chance to respond they send me this:

hostgator.com refunded $142.77 USD from your purchase on September 9, 2018.

They refunded my money and refused me service. Talk about ignorance and prejudice. Does anyone know of a hosting company that's crypto friendly? Thanks in advance. 
5  Economy / Trading Discussion / Market manipulation on: September 08, 2018, 04:20:00 AM
Back in 2017 it was published that certain powers will crack down on cryptocurrency in 2018. Comments by institutional representatives like "oh there just kids playing in the sand box. They'll lose interest soon." leave some wondering what they meant by these statements. Some say that the moment BTC Futures came online, the market just started tanking, and never really stopped. The double, or is it triple dip that happened here in mid Sept seemed odd to many. Commentators claimed that "unusual market activity" occurred just before it tanked. Many chalked it up to a decision by Goldman Sachs but do their choices really matter THAT much to average traders? Do you feel this market just flows naturally and it's just weak hands throwing money into the wind again and again? Or do you feel that there is a more sinister hand at work here? 
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / ETH is about to pop!? on: August 31, 2018, 12:18:02 PM
Not advice but just an observation that, say what they will, ETH is so undersold and as soon as bitcoin seems a bit high ETH is waiting down super low to ready to POP. Just look at ETH chart YTD and look at the trend. It speaks for itself!
7  Other / Beginners & Help / Does every bitcoin have a serial number? on: August 25, 2018, 02:24:51 PM
No, correct? The reason is logical. Bitcoins break into too many fragments to maintain serial numbers per coin. So instead, they are measured by amounts and locations. The synchronized confirmation nodes all agree on amounts and to which wallets which have public addresses, and then they enter the transaction into a synchronized ledger called the blockchain. There is of course much more to the mechanics of blockchain, but that answers in layman's terms how it is accounted for. Is this explanation accurate?

Also.. which coins use DAG?
9  Other / Beginners & Help / What do you guys think of Travelflex TRF? on: August 18, 2018, 04:58:36 PM
They just switched to DAG just like their roadmap promise. And it's SUPER fast as in seconds not minutes. The coin has a low circulating supply. This could explode yes?
10  Other / Beginners & Help / What's the fastest transaction speed you've seen? on: August 16, 2018, 04:09:35 PM
I was with my friend and he had two computers set up. One with the new TRF (travelflex) to DAG swap wallet that converts the old TRF into the new DAG version. He sent one coin to his personal wallet and by the time we walked into the other room moments later to view it on his other computer's home wallet, it was completed! So we decided to time the rest of the deposit. It was acknowledged as incoming in less than 8 seconds, in fact the wallet reacted right after I hit send. Then moments later, the transaction was completed. I hit stop and the time was at 33.36 seconds total transaction speed! Holy S&%t this DAG stuff is a game changer! Peer-to-Peer in seconds. Why are so few coins using DAG?
11  Other / Beginners & Help / Has anyone experienced DAG technology? on: August 14, 2018, 04:51:31 AM
A friend of mine was testing out the new Travelflex TRF DAG wallet and when he sent from one wallet to his home wallet both computers were side by side and the moment he hit send, the receiving wallet reacted. Then moments later it was reflected on his receiving wallet. I was stunned. I have never seen a blockchain transaction move that fast! there are only a few coins switching to dag and you cant just do it anytime. TRF is going to be one of an elite group.
12  Other / Beginners & Help / The most important thing all newbies NEED to know.. 2FA on: August 06, 2018, 04:30:31 AM
What is 2FA and why is it so important?

2FA means two factor authentication. Think of it as a second way to make sure that you are the one accessing your crypto not someone who shouldn't. I personally have never heard of someone getting hacked and losing their crypto while having 2FA. Most wallets and exchanges have a 2FA feature. If you have more than you care to lose on there or you plan to store it for a length of time, you should turn on 2FA. BUT something you must do is back up your 2FAs back up code or key. The problem that can arise is in order access your crypto, you'll need your phone. That's so a hacker somewhere else in the world can't take it even if they have your passwords because they would also need access to your phone. BUT if you lose your phone and you have no backup key, you lose your crypto. Except with exchanges, they can work with you but really you shouldn't store your crypto on exchanges either.
13  Other / Beginners & Help / Where should I look for an affordable web designer? on: July 13, 2018, 04:59:48 AM
I'm building a site and I'm starting with an HTML template from themeforest to save on production costs. I know basic web design but looking for someone savvy in design and hopefully block chain related development. Does anyone have a suggested website or even person that can help me build my platform on a budget? Could be from India where the dollar goes further. Ideas? Thanks!
