1  Other / Off-topic / [Boxing] Canelo Alvarez vs. Ilunga Makabu on: November 19, 2021, 01:47:05 AM
After becoming undisputed champion at super middleweight Canelo is now prepared for his next challenge. He will be moving up two weight classes to face WBC cruiserweight champion Ilunga Makabu. This opponent is not very well known but he has a high knockout percentage with 25 KOs in 28 victories and he has not had a loss in over 5 years. It will be an impressive feat if Canelo can become champion at cruiserweight after starting his career fighting in the jr. welterweight division.

3  Economy / Gambling discussion / [Boxing] Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley on: June 01, 2021, 02:08:30 AM
Jake Paul and former UFC champion Tyron Woodley have agreed to a deal in a boxing match. This is another easy cherry pick fight for Jake Paul in my opinion. Woodley is not a boxer, he's 39 years old and has lost his last 4 MMA fights.

Elon Musk just announced that you can now buy a Tesla with Bitcoin. He also says that they will not convert the BTC to fiat.

5  Economy / Gambling discussion / [Boxing] Canelo Alvarez vs. Avni Yildirim - February 27 on: January 20, 2021, 11:35:51 PM
Just two months after his dominant performance over Callum Smith, Canelo Alvarez (54-1-2, 36 KOs) returns to the ring to face Avni Yildirim (21-2, 12 KOs). This is just getting his mandatory fight out of the way and I don't expect Canelo to have any problems with the Turkish fighter. Yildirim was last active two years ago in a fight that he lost in a controversial decision.

The fight will take place on February 27 in Miami at Hard Rock Stadium.

Today Tyson Fury tweeted out a statement confirming that Anthony Joshua will be his next opponent. "Coming soon somewhere near you. 2021"

The tweet was accompanied by this photo:

Recent statements by promoters Bob Arum and Eddie Hearn indicate that the fight for the undisputed heavyweight championship will take place at a location in the Middle East.

There is already several casinos taking bets on the fight with Tyson Fury being the favorite according to the odds tracking site Pro Boxing Odds.

In his final weeks in office before Joe Biden’s inauguration, President Donald Trump is weighing granting clemency to Ross Ulbricht, the founder and former administrator of the world’s most famous darknet drug market, Silk Road, The Daily Beast has learned.

Regardless of what you might think of Trump, it is a good thing for someone who was unfairly locked up to be given a second chance.
8  Economy / Gambling discussion / [Boxing] Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul - June 6 on: December 06, 2020, 11:42:23 PM
After the success of the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. exhibition fight, Floyd Mayweather has decided to follow in their footsteps and will be fighting Logan Paul in an exhibition fight. Logan did not look good in his fights against KSi so this should be an easy fight for Floyd. The one advantage the Youtuber has is his size, he is a natural cruiserweight. The fight will be on Sunday June 6th at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

9  Economy / Gambling discussion / [Boxing] Golovkin vs. Szeremeta IBF Middleweight Title on: November 25, 2020, 04:06:07 AM
On December 18th, GGG will make his long awaited return to the boxing ring to face his mandatory challenger Kamil Szeremeta. GGG will be making the 21st defense of his middleweight title. These are not consecutive defenses since he already lost to Canelo but it is still an impressive record nonetheless.

The odds are not yet available but GGG should be a huge favorite. Szeremeta is undefeated but the most notable opponent on his record is former champion Kassim Ouma who was a decade past his prime. He also only has 5 knockouts in 21 fights.

I expect GGG to end the fight with an early knockout. Anything less would be a disapointment and would show that maybe GGG is no longer an elite level fighter.

10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Another major DeFi attack on: October 26, 2020, 05:56:28 AM
An exploit in DeFi protocol Harvest Finance has caused over $25 million in funds to be stolen. Most of these funds have been traded for renBTC and mixed through Tornado Cash.

The protocols native token FARM has fallen 65% in value.

It's possible that this could be an exit scam since Harvest Finance's anonymous devs supposedly have an admin key that can drain the protocol's contract.

This keeps happening over and over again. A user of the decentralized finance platform AAVE mistakenly sent 28,050 AAVE tokens, worth approximately $1.1 million, to the token's contract address. There are now discussions about possibly restoring the user's funds.
12  Economy / Gambling discussion / [Boxing]: Manny Pacquiao vs. Conor McGregor on: September 26, 2020, 04:59:49 AM
There is serious discussion happening to try and make a Pacquiao vs. McGregor fight. McGregor is coming off a win in a tune up fight in January. His last win in a championship fight was in 2016. His record in MMA is 22-4, in boxing he is 0-1. Manny Pacquiao has a record of 62-7-2 and is coming off a win against Keith Thurman for the WBA Welterweight Title in July of 2019.

Manny Pacquiao opens as the heavy betting favorite.

In a recent Cointelegraph article BitPay's Chief Marketing Officer Bill Zielke revealed that only around 2% of their transaction volume comes from Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Despite being accepted by thousands of merchants, nobody is using Bcash for what it is intended to be used for.

Today I received an email that was supposedly from BitcoinTalk support. The email had a link where the text looks like a BitcoinTalk url but when you click on it it takes you to a different website which looks exactly like BitcoinTalk but the url in the address bar is different.
