1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support /, I find no way to verify the download with PGP on: August 11, 2020, 07:13:49 PM
The page takes us to the GitHub repository where we can download the zip file. Don't we need to verify signature with PGP? For we have the signature, but for wallet we don't, neither did I find that for plenty of other websites, that I find trustworthy by the way since they were mentioned in popular places. But no signatures to verify their downloads.

Any idea?
2  Economy / Trading Discussion / Closing a futures position at 70700 ADA on margin balance and getting 52000! on: August 08, 2020, 05:55:18 PM
Hello guys,
Donno if anybody could have an explanation. It's pretty frustrating, I longed ADA in Binance futures, had an unrealized ETN of about 6400 ADA and an initial balance of 63000 ADA. I decided to close my position, and, surprise, here is my balance at 52000 ADA!! How could such a thing happen? Am sur that at the exact moment I closed that position my margin balance was 70700 ADA.
That was on COIN futures.

Hi everyone,
Is there any prices history excel charts or other stats for cryptos. Do you know any websites?
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / chainlink vs band protocol? on: August 02, 2020, 06:19:17 PM
Hello guys.
To put the question in context, I never invest in a crypto unless I am extremely knowledgeable about it. The only crypto I own is ADA.
But I think at some point I will be choosing another one (not bitcoin, sorry). I think oracle cryptos are a good idea. I looked at Tellor, Band Protocol and Chainlink. I discarded Tellor, so I still have to choose only one between Chainlink and Band Protocol. Unfortunately Band Protocol has quadrupled in price in the last 2 weeks so this would be something to take into account, but also chainlink is skyrocketing.

Has anyone done some research?

The post of Samuel Jobs below is correct. I am deleting this topic.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / AVAX project vs Cardano on: July 25, 2020, 01:27:39 PM
Hello everybody,
I am an ADA fan and will be holding it for a long time. I don't think, in my opinion, other smart contract cryptos will be able to compete with it, but it's only my opinion.
Although I've heard recently about the AVAX project that seems a little bit interesting to me (I missed the ICO). Has anyone compared the 2? I basically find it interesting but I am definitely not buying the IOU at 6 dollars right now.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Cardano bearish people please come here I need you! on: July 20, 2020, 10:29:14 AM
Hello everyone,
Please, this post is only for Cardano bearish people. Of you're bullish (like me) do not post here please. You will understand why in a second.
It's been about 6 months I am studying crypto, and I found Cardano to be the perfect investment right now.
1-Because a lot of people talk trash about it (scam, etc) so that drives the price a little bit down which is good
2-No working product yet but a lot of work is to be done with very competent people, so when the product comes out it's true value will come.
3-Everything else...

I find it so perfect as far as a risky investment is concerned that the words of Benjamin Graham start resonating in my head saying "Excitement in Wall Street leads to disaster". But still, I really like this project, and I am truly scared about missing something over there.

For the record, I only invested once in my life 3 years ago with gold that turned out to be pretty good for me.
8  Economy / Trading Discussion / Do you get to buy all the assets in a futures contract on: July 19, 2020, 01:14:54 PM
Hi everyone,
This should be an easy question for experienced traders, if you would like to help please of course:) Because I spent hours searching for the answer and there is none! And it should be a very basic issue for futures trading.

I am a new crypto investor (so not a trader), and there is one altcoin that I would like to buy but I don't have the cash right now:(
So I want to buy a futures contract, let's say, with a 20x leverage. So I will put 0.1 BTC, long my altcoin and wait for the 25 th of September at 2pm, the time of expiry, hopefully without being liquidated.
At that time, I will have 2 BTC. So on the 25 th of September I get to deposit these 2 BTC to buy my altcoins at the price of the contract? Surprisingly enough I cannot find any document that could explain this.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Let's talk decentralization: Internet power and electricity are centralized on: July 16, 2020, 10:24:32 AM
Hello everyone,
I am somewhat new to the crypto world (few months).
This is rather a question for long term investors, who think and plan about when to start getting out of crypto. Of course crypto is wonderful but wonderful doesn't mean it can't be killed. We've seen how governments synchronize together in lockdowns, same timetables for letting people out... Who would have thought this could happen? Having multiple governments doesn't mean they can't synchronize together in decisions.
Now, under some new threat, like terrorism as an example, to prevent crypto currency exchange between people, the whole internet could be shut off. Why not? They only give us TV updates. Paying with credit cards? no problem, a new network could be put in place, like internet version 2.0, only available in stores. I basically searched but found no project that calculated for this possibility.

Now I hope not of course, some projects like Cardano are well suited for regulations, so I hope they just start regulating things and not just shut off the whole thing.

But, this post only asks one question: What are the signs you will be looking for such a scenario to happen?

Thank you in advance for anyone who has worked on this subject and is willing to share
10  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / How come that quantum computers supposedly can't hack non used wallet addresses on: July 01, 2020, 05:43:23 PM
Hello everyone,
How come that I read several times that quantum computers can't hack the wallet address that has never sent bitcoin, because the address is not on the blockchain. But from the address that sent the bitcoins to this other address never to be used, we can see the public address. So how come that it can't be hacked. Any public address could be hacked with sufficient computer power no? Unless there is something that I miss here, or is it related to the private key?
Thank you!
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Verifying that an ERC20 token can't be inflated on: June 26, 2020, 06:02:52 AM
I have found an ERC20 token related to a business I think is interesting. The only issue left with me is how can I verify, within their open source code, that the creator of the token can't just create as much token as he wants at some point if the token becomes very valuable. Does anybody know? Thank you!
12  Other / Off-topic / GnuPG user Guide?? on: June 05, 2020, 10:49:01 AM
I consider myself to have an advanced computer literacy, but I just can't get my hand on GnuPG. I've been trying on and off since one month to see how can I verify installations, but it is just impossible. The GnuPG user Guide says "we released version 2.0 while installation guide has not finished". On YouTube, the cryptodad channel has a guide on windows and I have a Mac.

I installed it, can find it nowhere on my MacBook (seems like you should use a terminal), and I'm clueless of how I can use it!! Any videos? A step by step guide? Thank you!
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Can CHP alt coin (CoinPoker) be inflated? on: May 16, 2020, 07:23:10 PM
First of all, this is my first post, hello to everybody on Satoshi's forum!

CHP (CoinPoker) is an ICO based on ERC20 (etherum blockchain). It is impossible for me to know if this could be inflated (created for free by the crypto starters). Maybe there is something in the technology that I don't understand, but does anybody know? How could you be sure of that? The support says there will never be new CHP but they don't have a reference to support it, and can't help much more than just saying that's how it works.

As a matter of fact, I know there couldn't possibly be more than 21 000 000 bitcoins. But as far as CoinPoker is concerned, I just can't put my hand on something credible.

Thank you!
