1  Other / Beginners & Help / Manipulation looks like on: September 18, 2022, 06:02:34 PM




I know all the members who are into bitcoin and crypto. We heard a sentence that whales are manipulating the market. Manipulating! It was a little confusing for me when I heard this the first time, but when I actually understand what actual manipulating should look like, there are lots of members who also want to know what it might look like to see that picture. And see the game how they played it 4 hours ago. They invested in knc worth 65+ btc, so they added value to knc, but it appears that they have already sold 52+ btc worth of knc after 4 hours. They are pumping and dumping the market price. This is how they actually play the game. Just think, you saw that the KNC price went up when they invested 65+ BTC, and after hours you saw a major dump on KNC after they sold 52+ BTC worth of KNC. Now we think yes, we got an entry point because it dumped, so it will pump again. But you might not have noticed that they are still holding 13+ btc worth of knc. So he can easily dump your fund, which means you invest in the price. Then they dump it again by selling their portfolio. You will panic and sell at a loss. They will again buy and play their usual game. I hope now you understand before investing or trading how much research you should have done and don't take an entry on a sudden pump and dump moment. Thank you so much if you understand what I actually wanted to tell you. Your comments will be appreciated by me.
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / 4 Bitcoin Traders Arrested Due To Illegal Trading on: September 07, 2022, 12:35:11 PM


The news comes from Bangladesh that 4 people were arrested by RAB-5 (Rapid Action Battalion) for the purpose of illegal bitcoin trading. The news I read is in Bengali, and if I translate the news, then according to the news sources, those 4 people who are placed in Narshingdi are arrested not only for using bitcoin, though bitcoin is illegal in Bangladesh, but they are also being arrested because they are doing some kind of money laundering. According to the news, they first use some illegal and banned dating websites, then from other countries' people take dollars, then they convert those dollars into cash through the p2p method. Finally, they convert that cash into bitcoin again through the p2p method. So Bitocin is illegal, which means they did not pay taxes because of the p2p method, and RAB suspects they are involved in money laundering. So that's the overall news.
 
Now my closing statement on this matter is that no doubt this arrest is a good job because these guys are scamming people and laundering money, but in this case, the news portal highlights bitcoin that it is illegally traded. What I do think is good. Because they choose illegal paths like dating websites and money laundering, but you can't use balmebitcoin for this. That's my opinion. What do you think about this news? Please share it with us. Thank you.

We know what time we are going through right now, but we believe everything will be over very soon. And we are hearing lots of FUD and what we are doing is only sharing the news and creating this FUD viral, but those who need opportunity, they just make something else happen. But it's true that this 900B down makes the times very tough for us. But those who believed in crypto saw an opportunity at this time. who we call the strong hand. And they are grabbing much more this time. In the meantime, two of the most powerful crypto influencers added more bitcoin to their treasury. And that is called strong hands grabbing bitcoin.

6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Just watch "Trust no one" diocumentary film related 2019 biggest crypto scam on: April 04, 2022, 09:08:58 PM


Just watch the documentary film on Netflix called "Trust No One". Which is the true story of the biggest scam worth almost $250M by Gerry Cotten. What comes out after his death and at the time when his death has become the biggest mystery in the crypto world? This is really a scary story. And when I watched the film, I was just curious about one thing: is it possible to understand the feelings of those people who lost everything on quadrigacx exchange?

And this film teaches me 2 things.

1: A centralized exchange is required, but it is also risky.
2: What happened to your bitcoin after your death, if you didn't share your account access with anyone?

 
Though there are several posts related to these 2 points on this forum. But I want to point out these 2 things from the films. If you haven't watched it, I think you should have watched it if you are working in the crypto field. It helps you get some alerts on what might help you. And you will find the films on Netflix. And if you don't have Netflix, then you might find any piracy website. I don't suggest it. However, if you so desire.

If you watched the movies please share your opinion here. And if you find any important things please share with us.
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / How do you feel if satoshi back on: April 02, 2022, 10:49:43 AM


I just saw this on my news feed. Though I know it's been edited. But we all know that satoshi is a feeling and emotion for us. And if he comes back, it will be a great feeling, but on the other hand, it is also scary. Because people say if he comes back and starts to sell his holdings, the bitcoin price will be dumped brutally. That is why I am scared too.

What would be your feelings if this happened?

A local school In dubai accept bitoicn and ethereum as a tuition fees. This school has become the first educational institution in the Middle East to accept crypto.


This is called adoption. And Dubai is always first to experiment technology. And this is a proof of it. Whats your opinion about this adoption? Othercountries should learn something from this. And this is a proof that bitcoin is unstopable.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Friends Give Me BTC as Birthday give on: March 27, 2022, 10:40:00 PM


Today was my birthday. I just came home 3 hours ago. It was really late at night, but a party was organised for me. By the way, thanks to my friends who gave me this special birthday. But I was most surprised when I saw they gave me a birthday card and asked me to open it. When I opened it, I saw an email and password were written. And the account was a Kucoin account. Then I logged in and I saw there was $93 worth of bitcoin. And when I asked them about it, they said "this is a gist from five people. Four give 20 each and one gives $15, but because of the price volatility, it becomes $93. Though I didn't ask about the amount, I asked them what they did. Because I have been helping them learn about bitcoin for the last 15 days, and they have already made their first investment with me. This feeling is really something special for me. Literally, this is something special. And this birthday will be really memorable for me. My life's first bitcoin gift was on my birthday.
 
Do you guys have any memories of something like this? If you want, you can share that, and if you also give them any surprise, please share that too, so that I can get a better idea of what to give them.

10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / My NFTs journey on: March 16, 2022, 05:55:20 PM
Actually, I was also excited about investing in NFTS. Because it created the hype and I got trapped in that hype, I am trying to invest in some of them and have profited from some of them also got rugged by some of them. Today I will share my NFTS experience till now. Though I can't recall when I began my journey. Let me clarify. I am not a whale investor and I am not holding nft like bored punks or some blue chip. Yes, I did invest in some Solana-based nfts through Minting. not much, only a few. Here is my list:

Name& Link               Mint Price        Sold/Hold/stake     Comment

Solana Banana Nft         0.99Sol         10 Sol   Made Profit Cheesy
Degods Nft                         3 Sol         Still not sell i am staking it. Floor Price is now lamost 50 Sol. I am staking it where i am earning 10 $DUST EVERYDAY. It is my bluechip. Cheesy

MAYBE RUGGED OR NOT

Skeleton crew         can't remember exact but maybe 2 Sol         Floor price 0.7 sol Not sold yet just stake it for.   I am in loss but holding  Cry
Sol Sneks 3D         Cant remeber exact but maybe 1 sol         Floor is 0.20 sol now not sold yet   Holding because of loss  Cry

I have more than 9 more nft who rugged(loss) me. I minted lots of rugged nfts. I am at a huge loss. But from only 2 NFTS, I got a profit. And the degods know what I am still holding that is my portfolio game changer. It turns all my losses into profit. Another thing is that I actually started my nft journey with 1 sol. That was my first investment in solana bananas. I immediately sold them on the market at 10 sol. Then I invested that $10 into some NFT. So the overall thing is that I am in profit because my overall nft investment is 1 sol. But after some losses, I stopped investing in NFTs. But the Degods gave me new hope.

This topic is not for financial purposes. I just shared my experience and you saw that the maximum of my investment is in loss. But I made profit from some because I believed in myself and, because of that, I took risks with Degods. And my trust gave me profit. That's it, and being panicked is also a bad thing. And what I learned from this is that we have to choose a project that has a vision no matter what its present position is. Because if their vision is clear, they will give me a profit guarantee, regardless of what the degods show me.

Thank you everyone for reading my nft journey.

12  Economy / Gambling discussion / Gambling in METAVERSE on: March 12, 2022, 05:59:09 PM

The most hyped thing is that people are talking too much about it. And they said this would be the future of the internet and the future of business. Yes, you guessed correctly, it's the metaverse. After Facebook changed their name to Meta, and after the announcement of Web 3.0 and the hype of NFT and several blockchain technologies, people really want to experience the things of the Metaverse. And it is true that blockchain gaming will be the first place where the metaverse will be introduced properly.

But my intensity is about gambling in the metaverse. Did you think about it? What are your thoughts on gambling in the metaverse world, where you and a friend are playing at a table, but it's online, and you're sitting next to each other, but you're from different countries? Isn't it sound cool? Well, it felt cool to me. I don't know if this type of site exists or not, but in the future there will definitely be a gambling world in the metaverse. And I really want to experience that. I hope that technology comes soon.

Whats your opinion about this technology?

I am actually a little confused about where this post should be suitable. If you think it's the best category, please move it.

14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is El Salvador in debt because of the bitcoin price drop? on: January 24, 2022, 08:39:05 AM
image source: Google search

We know that El Salvador was the first country to make bitcoin legal tender in their country. And he's doing all of this while the price of bitcoin is rising. And they continue to notify us about their new investment in bitcoin. How much bitcoin did they buy, and when did they buy it? How much did they spend on the average price of a bitcoin? Because of the recent massive drop in bitcoin, I assumed that this bitcoin drop had put them in debt. If this dump continues for some more weeks, then it might be problematic for the El Salvador government. Because the opposition party has something to blame them for any kind of debt. And because of the economy, stocks and fiat investors also have something to say against Bitocin. If this happens, then other countries will be really confused about making bitcoin legal tender. To make it legal tender, they might study the case of El Salvador.
 
It's just my speculation. What do you think about my speculation? I really appreciate your opinion.

15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / I invested $100 for 18 years for my new born nephew on: January 23, 2022, 10:50:36 AM
Since last week, we have been very happy because a new member has joined our family. Yes, last Saturday, my elder brother became the dad of a boy. After spending 9 days in the hospital, they came to our home. It really is a great feeling for me to become an uncle. He is the first baby in our family's next generation. So I thought of something for him yesterday. I thought I would make 15- 18 years of FD for him. so that we can provide him with a better education. We are not from a rich family. We belong to a lower middle class family. And my elder brother is working at a bank as a security guard. because he didn't study well. As a security guard, his salary is only $90 equivent a month in our currency. This won't be enough for him to give a better study. So I thought I would do something so that i can contribute little on his study. As a crypto member, I have finally made a decision. I will make an investment in bitcoin for him. But I don't have much money, but I can invest a little amount for him. Yesterday I bought $100 worth of bitcoin for him.

This is a really small amount, so my brother won't say no to me. Then I load it onto a separate account for him. And write the wallet ID (Means electrum wallet seed) on a note paper and give it to my elder brother and tell him to keep it for at least 15–18 years. And my trust in bitcoin says that after 15–18 years, this $100 could be a very handsome amount for my nephew. They don't have any technical knowledge, so I just told them to hold it. They will hold it. And when he becomes 10 to 12 years old, I will start teaching him about bitcoin so that if anything happens to me, he can easily access his account and get access to his reward. I am teaching my younger brother about bitcoin. He can also help. However, my family's wish is that all of the next generation members will be tech savvy. Because tech is the future.
 
What do you think, guys? Will this amount be enough for his better study costs? Though if they keep it for 10 years, at least that's enough for me. What do you think, guys? What will be the price of this $100 after 18 years?
I bought bitcoin at an average price of $35,546,.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Detailed Explanation of "METAVERSE" on: January 21, 2022, 10:41:29 AM


Hello, friends!


Imagine you meet with your family members or your friends, but not really, rather in a virtual 3D world. One that is created artificially. You enter this world while you're sitting in your room, using a special headset or glasses. Similarly, you're working or studying or shopping, you do almost all the things that you do in the real world, but not in the real world, instead in this virtual, artificially created world, using this special headset or glasses right from your room. How does it sound? Doesn't it sound a little depressing? Friends, the Metaverse promises something akin to this for the future. It is touted to be a technology that would replace the internet in the future and will become the future of humanity. "Will Metaverse change the world of the internet?" "I think we'll have to brace for this race for the Metaverse. I think we'll see more and more of an AI coming in the gaming space." "The next platform and medium will be even more immersive an embodied internet, where you're in the experience, not just looking at it. And we call this the Metaverse. Because the future is going to be beyond anything we can imagine."

The word Metaverse is made up of two words. Meta + Verse. The word Meta is derived from Greek, it is a prefix that basically means 'Beyond.' And the Verse comes from the word 'Universe.' We live in this Universe and it will be the Metaverse that will be beyond this universe. This word is basically used to refer to an artificial world. You might recall another word related to this, the Multiverse. The one talked about in the latest Spiderman film. Multiverse is the concept where there are multiple existing universes, It is something that is even scientifically discussed. Some people believe that there isn't only one universe, rather there are multiple universes, thus the Multiverse. But anyway, Metaverse means an artificially created universe. The Internet can also be said to be a distinct universe but when you go on the Internet, it is mostly limited to 2 Dimensions only. Whether you're using your phone or your computer, these are 2-dimensional screens. But when Metaverse is talked about, Metaverse would be a world where you can be completely in it.

In 3 Dimensions. Like when you watch a film, you wouldn't be watching the film merely as a viewer, you would experience being in the film. For example, you're watching the Dandi March happening, you wouldn't just see the photo of it, or the video of the Dandi March, rather it would be as if you're sitting in a boat nearby and actually watching the Dandi March as it is happening. Or when you watch a cricket match on the television, it is in 2 dimensions, but technically, if we use virtual reality, then you would get a 360° experience of watching the cricket match around you. It will try to create an experience that would make you feel as if you're actually at the match. The word Metaverse was first used in the year 1992. In the science fiction book Snow Crash. Written by Neal Stephenson. In this novel, he talked about a dystopian world, a world where real-life has been destroyed the outdoors wasn't livable for humans anymore, so everyone lives confined to their buildings and rooms, and spends their life in virtual reality. That virtual reality, the artificial world, was referred to as Metaverse by him. After this, a game was released in 2003 called the Second Life. You could play this game on the computer, and create a second life in this game on the computer. Meeting people virtually, buying items, buying properties in the game, exchanging goods and services, and creating realistic looking avatars.

By the way, an interesting fact here, the word Avatar, was first popularised in the 1992 book Snow Crash. This word comes from the Hindi/Sanskrit word Avtar, when we call someone a reincarnation of a deity. Similarly, the word Avatar was used here for the characters in the virtual reality that you could create. They'd be your Avatars. Like this 3-D animation of Mark Zuckerberg created by him, this 3D character is the Avatar of Mark Zuckerberg. Obviously, this word became more popular in the rest of the world with the release of the 2009 film Avatar. Recently though, many companies tried to create their virtual worlds and Metaverses, but this word was made popular again by Facebook. When Facebook decided to change the name of their company to Meta. Saying that they want to adopt the Metaverse. That they want to expand from being a social media company to a Metaverse company. And Mark Zuckerberg defined the Metaverse in this manner. "And you're gonna be able to do almost anything you can imagine. Get together with friends and family, work, learn, play, shop, create, as well as entirely new categories that don't really fit how we think about computers and phones today. If it were up to Mark, he would've said that you could eat and have bodily functions in the Metaverse itself. Because the more you spend time in the Metaverse, the more data they would be able to collect on you. More they earn.

But let's talk about this later in the video. The cons and dangers of it. First, let's see how the Metaverse is created. Various technologies are used here, to actually create the Metaverse. The first is Virtual Reality. This technology already exists today. But to use this, you have to wear these heavy headsets. And if you have them on for more than half an hour, they start causing headaches, and motion sickness. As claimed by many users. On top of it, the things that you can see in virtual reality now, the level of technology that we have today, is quite poor. The quality of animation that you see in the virtual reality games, the videos that you can see on there, Although it is something that would definitely improve with time. It is also being hoped that these heavy headsets with the new technologies, they would keep getting smaller and slimmer, and eventually, they'd be the size of normal glasses. Where it wearing it and taking it off would be as easy as wearing and taking off a pair of glasses. Whether this would be actually possible time will tell. The second technology is AR. Augmented Reality.

It would mean that some artificial elements mixed with our real world. It wouldn't be a complete Virtual Reality. An excellent example of it is the Pokémon Go smartphone game. On it, you can use the smartphone to look at the real world around you, but when you look at it through the smartphone, you can see the artificial Pokémons in there. It seems like they are mixed in the real world around you. Another good example of it is, the Google Glass that was released once upon a time. Remember? A product that was released and taken back without people finding out about it. But Google Glass had a huge hype around 2013-14, glasses with which you could add virtual elements in the real world. When you look at the road in front of you, you can have a map at the corner of the glasses, You could take to someone through the camera, while looking in front of you, even while walking, this feature was heavily criticised. In fact, this was mocked so much that eventually, the Google Glass was a huge flop. Apart from this, having 5G technology in the Metaverse is also talked about. If we're to create a huge virtual world, we'd need to constantly upload and download a huge amount of data, for this, we'd need extremely high internet speeds, we'd need 5G. Additionally, Blockchains and cryptocurrencies are also mentioned, when talking about the Metaverse. When money would be spent to buy anything in the Metaverse, they can't be real money, of course, because everything is digital, so there would be a need for digital currency.

This is where Cryptocurrencies come into play. And because there's a large number of transactions constantly, they'd need to be kept secure. There would be a threat of hackers, or the threat of data breaches too, To keep these secure, Blockchains might be used. The exact manner in which Blockchains keep the data secure. Apart from it, if you want to buy land in the Metaverse, or some other property, or any asset in the Metaverse, how should that be accomplished? It is said that it'll be accomplished through NFTs. Non Fungible Tokens. You can think of NFTs as tokens, that exists on the blockchain, and can prove the ownership of any digital asset. How would you prove that you own a particular digital land in the Metaverse? An NFT will prove it. Nowadays, it is being used to buy or sell the ownership of memes. NFTs can be used to verify the tickets to a concert also. If someone holds a virtual concert in the Metaverse. It is something that some singers have already done it.

Virtual reality concerts. In it, they get up on a digital stage and perform, and you see them as animated figures and see them perform. It can be used there as well. Last year in September, singer Arianna did this by virtually performing in Fortnite. Although all these technologies exist individually on a basic level, but by combining them, and creating a true Metaverse will take a lot of time. Mark Zuckerberg estimates that it would take about 5 to 10 years, for the key features of Metaverse to become a part of the mainstream. Several experts believe that it would actually take decades, before something akin to the Metaverse could become so popular, that majority of people would be using it. Many people believe that Metaverse is inevitable. It is bound to happen someday. The next thing after the internet would be the Metaverse. But a critical question arises here. Will this Metaverse be successful? Is there a demand for it? Does anyone want it? And it is a very interesting question. Because if you look at the technologies like Google Glass, there were a lot of efforts put into making it popular around 2014, Many celebrities went around wearing it, it was handed out to influencers, people made tech reviews of it,
showing how cool they were. But eventually, the Google Glass was a flop.

There are many reasons for the lack of response. One of the reasons was that they had a battery life of 3 hours only. They looked weird. There was the issue of privacy because they had a camera. Many places had already banned them because with people wearing them, no one knew who was being recorded when. Many countries went about banning them. People couldn't wear them to certain restaurants and bars. But in my opinion, there was an even more important reason behind the failure of Google Glass. They didn't have any feature that the people truly needed. It did look very cool, a futuristic piece of technology. And the people who owned one of these, they could show-off the features of the Glass, but actual, real-life use was next to none. Anything you could do on Google Glass, you could already do it on your smartphone. And you could do it better on the smartphone. Whether it is looking at maps or talking on video calls, You could do it on the Glass at the corner of the lens, but why wouldn't you just take your phone out of your pocket and use it? There was basically no use case for the Google Glass. Something similar can be said about the Metaverse too. It is very cool to try it for the first time, seeing how you can sit in a 3D virtual environment and communicate with others, having 3D meetings, but realistically, why would you go through so much trouble? Everyone needs to put on the glasses, and call everyone else on the 3D setup, it's easier to simply take out the phone and get on a normal video call. It is much easier to do so. Who would go through with preparing for all of it? Same thing for meeting up with friends, You can meet them actually in real life, but even if you want to meet virtually, have a video call with them.

Or talk to them via messaging. Is there something extra this special 3D world offer? The technology that is the most popular among people, Is the easiest to use. And provides a clear benefit to the user. If that's not the case, then it would be very difficult for a technology to become mainstream. Another example of it was the 3D glasses. There was a time when 3D became the latest trend. Every other film that was released was in 3D, there are many 3D pictures released now as well, but I'm talking about the time when 3D TVs were very popular too. People wanted to have a 3D TV in their homes. It sounds very cool. To have a 3D TV! But realistically, it was bothersome to put on glasses for watching TV. No one wants to put in so much effort. Things should be kept simple. Only the things that are simple would be successful. If you have the simple option of simply turning on the TV to watch it, you wouldn't care about 3D. And the additional eye strain and headache while wearing the 3D glasses is unacceptable for many people. This is the reason why the popularity of 3D cinema is sinking. People have started preferring watching 2D movies again. Because there aren't many additional benefits of watching 3D movies. And the feeling of being stuck with the glasses, and the strain on the eyes isn't worth it for the additional advantage  of watching the movie in 3D. The second point of criticism is perhaps more significant.

Do we really want to distance ourselves from the real-life so much that we forget how to live real lives? That we spend all our lives in this fake artificial world. If this virtual world becomes so addictive and immersive, somewhere or the other, people will stop worrying about the real world. It is truly dystopian. It will be very depressing. And the book that I talked about, Snow Crash, is actually a Dystopian Novel, it wasn't something to draw inspiration from. To create something of that sort. It tried to show the Metaverse in a negative light. The third problem is specific to Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg. The threat to privacy and data theft, You are tracked on Facebook by all possible means. The exact pixel you click, the content that you like, based on it, you are shown similar content. This creates bubbles. You remain in your bubble. You are shown only the things that you like. Because of this, what eventually happens is that, as I told you in the video on Facebook, we witness riots in the real world. Polarisation of people takes place. Left-wing and Right-win this religion versus that religion, this political party and that political party, people start fighting. And there are literal riots in the world. The blame for the genocide in Myanmar was put largely on Facebook. And because Mark Zuckerberg talks about creating the Metaverse, this same thing will increase 10 or 100 times. Because they want you to work in the Metaverse, talk to your friends, each and every movement would be tracked. Each word that you utter, they will track it to sell ads.

You will be shown things that you like. You can imagine the same thing on a much bigger scale. Think how dangerous it would be. On top of it, when such a virtual world is being created, a new type of universe is being created here, and it's created by one company. Think how the owner of that universe would be Mark Zuckerberg. In the real world, there is no such owner at least. Mark Zuckerberg would become the literal God of the Metaverse. If he gets control over everything. If the Metaverse truly becomes successful, suppose 60% of the world's population starts using it, and they start doing everything in the Metaverse, think about the level of power with that one person, that one company, that would own the majority shares in the Metaverse. It is very unethical and highly dangerous. What is your opinion on the Metaverse? What do you think? Will it become popular in the future? Comment below to let me know. If you ask for my opinion, I think some technologies from it that would definitely be popular in the future. But they will be popular in their sectors. For example, the technology of AR. Augmented Reality. I think it has a very productive use case in engineering, architecture or even in the field of medicine. Where you need to think in 3D. Using 3D models would make the work more efficient and overall better.

Especially if you could interact with 3D models. I believe it has great potential in many business areas and industries, these types of technologies.  I hope you found this post to be informative. Let's meet in the next post. Thank you very much.

WTF coin is now a super hyped coin, and the fees.wtf website allows us to see how much we spend on the Ethereum network in fees. Essentially, it allows us to track the ethereum network fees spent activity.Recently, they announced a reward as an airdrop.
