1  Other / Beginners & Help / Your post defines you on: November 09, 2019, 01:57:09 PM
Construction of a solid post poses as a strain to people. And barriers like language, computer adaptation adds to this problem.
Bad and jaw dropping low quality post is not incurable even to the chronic bad posters. Am still on the developing stage so I can say I also have an effort to put in.
 Why do people make bad post
A.  no idea but still want to make a post: some people lack idea or have little idea of what the want to write on and would not take the time to build the idea and make it logical for the community when posted not withstanding they go on to make the post.

B. They are in a rush:people can be in a rush to get there post count, want to be part of the first people to drop a reply to a post, no matter the reason for your rush it makes you to go on and deliver an half done post

C.  To bump a thread: bumping a thread is not against the rule but it has procedure, projects can hire some hoodlums to come on the forum using multiple account to spam and bump there thread

Making nice post is all about your desire to do so, don't wait till you become an expert but the small values and culture you can put into your daily post and your quality post would define you
2  Other / Politics & Society / The understated threats to live and property on: November 28, 2018, 07:59:46 AM
In the world today, terrorism and insurgency has pervaded a huge part of the world, even holding strong bases in some countries and no country is safe from inside or outside attacks.

Then there's the threats to lives and properties from the governments, with the war of words or, 'war of bombs' between, the United States and North Korean leaders, on who has larger missiles, and indirect threats to the citizens of those nations.

We all live in a constant state of denial, otherwise we would daily imagine ways we could wind up dead, and the constant dangers around us.

Is there any solution to the escalating situation?
How could we impact the next generation to do better and be better?
3  Other / Beginners & Help / Benefits of a quality post history on: November 26, 2018, 05:36:23 PM
There has been numerous complaints by members on the forum about quality posts not getting enough merits.
We have 119 merit sources and members in the forum who are active in giving out merits, and the system is all inclusive, but due to preference for specific boards or oversight and the fact that quality is objective, some merit deserving posts might not get rewarded.

But merits is not the only motivation to make relevant posts, having a quality post history is also very important as a member on this forum. Do not simply make one or two good posts solely for the purpose of getting merits and then get frustrated at the system when your post does not get the attention it deserves.

Having a good post history;
Puts you in a good position when a member views your post and goes through your post history to check if you're a regular contributor, or a spammer.

Also a post can be merited at any time, so there's no such thing as an 'unmerited post', It just hasn't yet been seen by a user who values the post.

Also some members go as far as to merit old posts of a member when going through his/her post history.

And very importantly, posting quality regularly impacts on you as a user and improves your knowledge of matters of cryptocurrency and the forum.

Activity limits you to only 14 a fortnight, so users do not have any pressure to post excessively to rank up, only contribute when you have something relevant to add to the discussion.
4  Economy / Speculation / Bitcoin prediction from 'Experts' on: November 23, 2018, 07:38:52 AM
I came upon this article, and the so called experts weigh in on the current price dip and why they believe Bitcoin would reach $3000.

I am usually very skeptical about trading advice from popular cryptocurrency influencers as it could be made with personal motive, but I was drawn to the statement made by Former institutional trader, Tone Vays;

"BTC constantly drops 80 or 90% to make sure people know what they’re doing, that they understand why they’re in BTC. And I think there are so many big buyers of Bitcoin and they weren’t buying it for the right reasons. They were buying it to make a quick buck and to be famous and to make money for their investors"

The current drop is bad for those seeking short term profit, and ICOs sponging on the growth of bitcoin. But I don't think it does much to the actual goal and target of this technology,
Of course we all invest for profit.
But true believers in bitcoin would be mildly shaken by price dumps, especially as it is expected in this space.

What do you think?
What's the support you envision?
Could there be a silver lining in all these?
5  Other / Meta / Trust Feedback without reference on: November 20, 2018, 11:08:08 AM
Going through trust feedback on different members of the forum. I see some feedbacks (positive or negative) left on members without any reference.

I am of the opinion that if you are going to leave a trust feedback on an account you should also provide verifiable references to the reason for it, otherwise it just seems like pulling it out of thin air.
I understand that a trust rating might not be for one reason and could be abstract, at the discretion of the person leaving it. But if you are going to suggest that other forum members trust or cautiously deal with another, then maybe you need to state why.

My question is, Should users be allowed to leave trust feedback without any reference?
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Inquiry about Bitcoin ETF and institutional investors on: November 10, 2018, 10:42:48 AM
Bitcoin ETF, as I understand is a way of indirectly buying bitcoin without needing to go through all the processes associated with purchase (exchanges, wallets, private keys etc)
It's basically a share of bitcoin which can be tradeable in external exchanges and would be classified as a security and would mirror the value of actual bitcoin.

It has been presented as a door to bring institutional investors into bitcoin and increase the adoption and price.

But I've come across articles where institutional investors are said to be buying bitcoin through OTC trades.

My question is;
Why would investors wait to buy bitcoin indirectly, when they can buy now?

And is the grounds of possible manipulations on which the proposals has been rejected a solid argument?

And lastly would bitcoin ETF approval herald the bull run as most people believe?
