41  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / What a shame on: May 07, 2023, 08:36:00 AM
It's a shame that people are still living their lives, saying, if the government says that something is bad then it is bad, government decides what's good and what's bad for it's people.

This is what I get from a lecturer of a university in my country, I was trying to teach some students about Bitcoin and crypto, I was forced to even do it because I have been busy with my business for the past one month now, a good year this 2023 has been for my business, but these students have been calling me to come and give them some lectures about Bitcoin so I did this yesterday.

One of the students have a father that's a lecturer and after I got home this student told me that his father said that the government is the only thing that can decide if a currency is fit to be people's currency or not, if the government says no then it's a no, coming from a lecturer this is so sad.

His son have an interest in Bitcoin and now it's left for him to make a choice, I am only surprised how a lecturer can be this dense, something that should be coming from an illiterate.

I don't know if this will impact the other students too because they are all from the same school but I do hope I've not wasted my energy, I spent 2 hours talking about Bitcoin and the Blockchain.

If something is not clear or doesn't make sense, we should look for answers and not make a blind determination on it, your action can have an impact on someone's else.
The lecturer have called Bitcoin a scam and his son is lost, I still told him to do research on his own but I myself have lose interest trying to explain anything to him anymore.

UPDATE


I've read some comments and people don't get why I believe it's a shame that this is coming from a lecturer. My father was old skool too, yet he never think that paper money is not replaceable, he was so opened to new ideas and he believe that anything is possible.

As a lecturer he should believe in whatever he believes in, but stopping his son from learning about Bitcoin is wrong, as a lecturer what makes him believe that he will always be right? We were taught in school that knowledge is power and this one is stopping people from achieving knowledge.

People believe so much in their government that's why many poor people are so powerless, some countries are in a mess today because all the people believe in are those corrupt politicians leading their countries.

I read some comments and I am disappointed, many people are just buying Bitcoin but they don't understand that Bitcoin gives power to the people through decentralization, for the first time in history the government is unable to be in total control of something, that's Bitcoin.

Gas fee and transaction fees will become a big problem in a bull market, we have been enjoying cheap transaction fees this days because we are in a bear market right now and no one is talking about how beneficial this is, yet some complains about how bad the bear market is.

I do have a solution for you long term holders, and those who must make transactions in a bull market, it's no denying that bull market will come sooner or later so I advice you to invest in your gas fee today, confused? Let's get down to business.

A gas fee of 3$ on Eth network today can cost you 100$ in a bull market, crypto gurus please confirm this for me.

My strategy is to buy some Ethereum for gas purposes today, and for the sake of tomorrow, if you are a big bag holder of projects ruining on Ethereum network this is a gem strategy.

I have bought 50$ of ETH today for transaction fees only.

If you are here in 2018 you know what I am talking about, ETH is unforgiving in every bull market.
43  Economy / Gambling discussion / Questions of the day for gamblers on: May 02, 2023, 04:49:41 PM
If a online casino claims to be a decentralized platform does this mean that their games are fully decentralized too?

Do you guys know that some casinos regulates their own slots machines themselves, can you gamble with ease of mind on such casinos?

If slots games is all you are good at, are you really good at it or you are just lucky? Can you use the word 'good at it' with slots game?

What is the most convenient games you play on gambling platforms?

Is using leverage about luck or skills? Or even a rigged game?
44  Economy / Gambling discussion / Gamble Responsibly on: April 16, 2023, 01:18:19 PM
There are many disadvantages of excessive gambling that we need to talk about, and I do hope that newbies who plan to start gambling will learn something from this thread.

Gambling is not for everyone, some people tend to always get attached to whatever they do in their lives, too caring, too foodie, too protective, all these comes with disadvantages too, because I believe that too much of everything is bad.

If you are someone like this, stay away from gambling.



In the Gambling case, it's a different story entirely, if humans can get used to drugs, alcohol, and other harmful things in this category how much more trying to make money off gambling?

It is easier to start dteaming about quitting your job one day and retire in your 30s, you know what I am talking about, those weird dreams that one never dreamt about when working in a company from 8am to 5pm everyday.

Here are some Negative effects of excessive gambling.

Too much stress
Anxiety and Depression
Debt
Making wrong decisions

And if all these is active in one's life low self-esteem is sure to follow, many people messed up their lives by gambling and they don't know when they start borrowing money, or selling off properties because of gambling until they have nothing left.

Thier families are the one who got caught up in the mess, imagine a family man that has a home to take care of ending up losing everything to gambling and start living a wrecked life, I have seen a lot.

My advice for upcoming gamblers reading this thread today, always makes sure you gamble like a responsible man. Remember where you came from and think about your children and family.  

Gambling must not be your path to success, you will get rekt very fast.

Do not build any dreams around gambling at all.

Gamble for fun only, using small money that you aren't needing, and think about losing that money first, to make sure that you won't be needing the money if it's gone.

Take a break.

Play for fun.

Don't chase your losses.

Stick to your Limits.

Gamble Responsibly.

45  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Take good care of yourselves on: April 09, 2023, 05:11:05 PM
We all have this dream of becoming a Satoshi millionaire, many people have the target of making their first 1 million dollars and yes that's a good thing, this is possible with crypto and Bitcoin and I am not here to discourage you.

I have seen people taking this holding of Bitcoin too far, where they are doing all they can to accumulate Bitcoin. Like limiting their spending by all means, eating less food, and doing harder jobs, I just want you to know that we are living on borrowed time.

Life isn't ours forever, take good care of yourselves, it is better to enjoy your labor than working all your life and leaving it behind for some people who aren't friendly to you while you are alive to enjoy your sweat.

I am talking from experience, since my father died, everything he worked for, all his properties was taken over by those who despise him in the family when he was alive, since we have a very weird culture in the family we the children can't do anything about it.

Bitcoin has a longer life span than our lives, we are going to leave Bitcoin behind one day unless the government finally killed Bitcoin  Wink.

Time is not on anyone's side, as you are working hard to make sure your dream becomes a reality make sure you are also spending on yourself and make sure you stay healthy.

If you have to spend your Bitcoin to stay alive, do spend it, you will get another.

If you have to spend your Bitcoin to save a life, do it, this is not the end.

If you have to spend your Bitcoin to have a better life, do it, Bitcoin or Crypto isn't the only way to become successful.

Take Good Care of yourselves.  Happy Easter
46  Economy / Gambling discussion / Rigged Game on: April 09, 2023, 03:27:32 PM
There are many problems that are affecting online casinos either due to been illegal operations or fraud cases like

Fake Advert, Payment Problems, Spamming Gamblers etc

But one comes in mind that I can't get rid of, those that Rigged their games, I don't know if people actually know that some online casinos Rigged their games, like the Aztec casino that was labeled a scam casino for example.

My question is how can one know that their game is rigged? If you play over 20 games and you lose it all, no one will believe you if you say that their is something wrong with the platform because truthfully as a gambler you have to lose, so what way can you actually know that a casino game is been rigged?
47  Economy / Gambling discussion / A costly gambling mistake on: March 13, 2023, 06:39:37 AM
The most popular mistake that newbies make with online casinos is avoiding the rules and regulations, not all online casinos will put up a warning sign on their first page and say 👇

"New users are welcome, please read our rules and regulation before making your first deposits"

You have to look for the website FAQ and go through it first, I have seen some newbies that avoid doing this has they ended up shooting themselves in the foot.

Some even start spreading FUD on the forum about these gambling platforms that did them wrong, not knowing that they are the ones at fault, they are guilty because they don't read the rules and regulations.
48  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / It's the 12th of March once again on: March 12, 2023, 04:39:58 PM
Almost 800 million in Bitcoin was liquidated in minutes on popular exchange called BitMEX years ago, how many of you guys remember this?

It was on the 12th of March 2020 that Bitcoin dropped 50% in value and this got me so good, till date I still regret my decision, because after so many endurance of waiting and waiting, Bitcoin dumped from 8000$ all the way down to 3,500$, I just gave up and it does not take too long, like 3 months later, that we were already in another bull market.

Do not be deceived by the chaos that the government are trying to cause, it's a big distraction, for those who are weak, do not be a weak BTC holder.
49  Economy / Exchanges / What could make an exchange to seize users assets on: March 11, 2023, 05:27:30 AM
Coinbase exchange was launched in 2012 right? Have there ever been any cases of users' assets being frozen and never released to them? I know someone living in the united states, she said that Coinbase seized her crypto in 2020 within that COVID-19 period and to date, the assets were never released back to her. I respect coinbase so much and I am curious why such a thing would happen.
50  Other / Beginners & Help / Don't consider yourself lucky on: February 27, 2023, 12:37:05 PM
I was crosschecking my messages on telegram just like I used to do every day and I came across a private message that consists of a screenshot with a different set of recovery seeds, for exodus wallet, Flux wallet, and Metamask, strange, isn't it?

This sender sent me this picture only and no Hi or hello like usual, just this picture.



How many of you are getting this messages? I bring this on this forum because it's nothing new to me, the motive behind this is to confuse new crypto investors that they mistakenly send you this picture.

Now, if you are very greedy like how many people are, you will want to import one of these seed into a wallet, hoping you will find one or two coins in the wallets.

And guess what? Such wallets always have coins in them, if they are empty how will you even think of sending ETH as gas fee into these wallets to move out the coins that's never yours?

The fact here is the wallets are wired to move out any deposited amount automatically once you send ETH into the wallets.

Moral lesson of the day

- Why are you even trying to claim what's not yours? You never hustle or work for this and you want to steal from someone else hustle, this is a very bad habit, it means if someone mistakenly send you a BTC or two you won't ever think of sending them back, there are good examples of people that return BTC mistakenly sent to them to the rightful owners, be a good example.

- Do not consider yourself lucky because People don't go online displaying their seeds, even new unpopular crypto wallets will warn you the first time you try to create a new wallet, to never share your seed with anyone, so if you come across any seeds online, it is intentional, to lure Greedy people.
51  Other / Off-topic / You will forever be missed on: February 25, 2023, 08:13:24 AM
There is nothing more painful than losing someone that supports you through and through.

Not long ago, I lose my father (74 years old), it's been 3 weeks now, he was the reason why I was able to confidently continue my crypto journey with no hurry, he has never for once told me that I am wasting my time, I remember one morning in 2018, he called me and told me about a podcast he listened to on the radio, he said they talked about Bitcoin on the radio and this makes it very important.

He said, do not give up, who knows? This could be the next big thing in the future. And his favorite quote is " this Life doesn't wait for anyone, things evolves very fast" ... I am able to be who I am today because of my father, while many people have a different story about their spouse when it comes to Cryptocurrency and Bitcoin, mine was different and very supportive.

The only regret I have is, not being able to take good care of my Bitcoin Father, I feel like I never did enough for him at all, he will forever be missed.

If you have families that support you on your journey, even when they don't entirely understand, consider yourself lucky and take good care of them before it's too late.

And for those who don't have any supporters, do not blame them, older people find Bitcoin very confusing.
52  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Learn from a brother's mistake on: February 09, 2023, 05:21:07 PM
A minute of silence for all Alliance Block investors...i have a brother who invested in this altcoin, hoping to hold till the next bull market, unfortunately the unexpected happened, now all the money is gone before he realized what's going on.

What lesson could be learned from this?

If you are a altcoin investor, do not keep all your eggs in one basket, if you believe in an altcoin, make sure it's not the only one, in fact, the more coins you have in your portfolio the lesser the risk, because not all the coins will go bad or get hacked, if one out of 5 or 10 become successful, 6x to , 10x or more, you've made back your ROI and still have some gains.

Also, I prefer projects from the Binance launch pad because binance don't just list any projects, 85% of all projects that used Binance launchpads are successful.

Alliance Block market cap is very low, projects with very low market cap are called degen by many and they are very risky, remember Gala games? It was hacked and all tokens were reimbursed, if Gala was a very small project I don't think they will do the reimbursement.

53  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Lost Bitcoin? on: February 06, 2023, 06:09:35 AM
If we want crypto currency to be a currency we have to keep spending right? But at the same time it's something worth keeping too since I do the same with my fiat in bank for more than 2years without touching it. Is it possible to say that Bitcoin in every wallets for the past 2years without moving are considered lost due to death or lost recovery keys? It's pretty hard to believe that anyone won't come back for their Bitcoin after 2years with no activities on the wallet.
54  Other / Beginners & Help / Crypto YouTubers are all financial advisors on: January 31, 2023, 05:03:23 PM
If someone is not a financial advisor and still go live on Youtube or Twitch to talk about how they make money investing in a project or two what does that make them?

Aren't they supposed to keep their financial advice to themselves if they don't want to be a financial advisor? Yeah, I think the perfect way to stay away from been a financial advisor is to keep your ideas to yourself, don't say a word about it.

Oh, I almost forget, it pays to be a YouTuber, you need a niche to talk about per se, and it's very easy to talk about a project even if they are going to ruin your life, the secret behind this people is you, the only ways crypto YouTuber makes money is shilling their crypto bags and waiting for new buyers, it's two ways to make money for them, YOUTUBE and CRYPTO BAG..

55  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / So far so good with Bitcoin adoption on my side but I have question on: January 30, 2023, 06:36:18 AM
I wish there is a way that I can show families on here how successful I have bring numbers of people into Bitcoin between 2021 - 2023, it's been so great and I am very happy about it, I have fresh newbies at hand right now,  two of them are from the same university 🎓, I have spent 6 weeks with them teaching and answering questions about Bitcoin and wallets, now they decide to purchase their first set of Bitcoin.

Here is where I am confused, the present value of Bitcoin is growing, some said it's because of the Chinese New year Holiday aka Year of the Rabbit, since I got mine at 17,000 and 15,000 I feel it's wrong to tell these newbies to buy at 23,000$

Have I done the right thing by telling them to wait for some correction before buying or you famz have a better idea? Because right now I don't see anything thing better than to wait, double bottom is always possible with Bitcoin in bear markets.
56  Bitcoin / Mining / Is it wrong to try your luck with Solo on: January 27, 2023, 06:12:17 AM
Is 110TH enough to gamble with Bitcoin solo mining? If you can solve a Bitcoin block in 4-7 years do you think it's worth the hassle? What can 110TB do to make this possible? I have free electricity I just want to embark on this try-your-luck journey, do you think it's worth it? I am not in haste and I am ready to just plug the ASIC miner and move on, I have other business that fetches me good money so..
57  Other / Beginners & Help / Reason why I will never help anyone to invest in crypto on: January 26, 2023, 06:30:21 AM
I have successful stories of people around me that are now crypto guru, it's been a long time coming and I feel happy that they are now even better than me who teach them almost everything about Bitcoin and crypto in general but..

There are some people like six of them who are troublesome to me, they don't want to learn but they like the success stories surrounding crypto investment, not sure about the risk side, the funny thing is they want me to help them invest and choose coins for them, to me this is like breaking the rules of crypto investment, meaning they have no knowledge about what they are investing money on.

Even if they invest what they are ready to lose it still makes no sense, no one can run crypto investment for you while you know nothing about the tech, I told them this but they believe I intentionally do not want help them.  In this case they are the only ones that can help themselves.

If you are in same position like me, no matter how much you like someone or want the best for them do not help them to invest in crypto, they are lazy asses who can't get anything done on their own, and this type of game I don't play it because, in the end, you will become their enemy.  It's already happening and I just ignored them. Is anyone seeing the same thing in their city or country?
58  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Its safe to say Bitcoin has recovered all it's losses since the FTX collapse? on: January 24, 2023, 12:18:26 PM
It seems that people are now getting used to Bitcoin market behaviour, now people are understanding that Bitcoin cycle is 4 years. Imagine if the FTX collapse happen in 2017, I believe the impact will be more drastical compare to today, now I can boldly say that Bitcoin has now recovered all it's losses since the FTX collapsed, is this safe to say?

I never expected the fast recovery that's why I said the world is finally understanding why Bitcoin is a necessity in every one's life, am I saying too much? Or you think I am right?
59  Other / Beginners & Help / Exit liquidity on: January 24, 2023, 07:12:26 AM
In my early stage of crypto investment I was once a victim of exit liquidity and right now the numbers of crypto influencers on Youtube is growing in numbers and merely seeing this it brings back some bad memories.

My Mistake



I spent few hours per day watching influencers videos on youtube, and u always think they know better than everyone else, they talk about coins that will bring 10x to 1000x in the next bull run and I listened only to realise that they are doing this to bring in new buyers for their own bag to surge and exit on us.

The lesson I learned is all those influencers are pumping their own bags so that people like myself can become an exit liquidity. Always do your own research and don't trust any influencers.

The next successful crypto projects are probably never going to be talked about by anyone or get shilled online by anyone, do not rely on influencers to pick tokens and coins, spend your time finding the next good projects with new utilities, do your own research and invest wisely.
60  Other / Beginners & Help / Warning ⚠️ there is a new hack that steals bank/crypto info on your phone on: January 19, 2023, 04:30:20 PM
I don't know if this is the right place for this, I need to warn people about a new trick that hackers are using to drain bank accounts and crypto wallet.

someone living next to me lost over 2000$ in his bank account and tokens in his metamask all wiped out..the last thing he did before he started receiving debit alert is opening a PDF sent to his mobile number, that's it.

The same PDF that's been sent to me several times and since the sender hidden their number I can't block them for good, I just knew it feels wrong downloading a PDF file that I wasn't expecting.

Many people have already became a victim, most are not into crypto and they are blaming the banks.



If you are from Nigeria 🇳🇬 be very careful, the hackers form any +234 numbers and send them this PDF file, there are more than 5 people within my area that have received the same PDF, there are too many news about money vanished from bank accounts that's why many people are scared now.

I have deleted this shit over 20 times already but the sender keeps sending it back, if you know how I can block the sender ( hidden number ) please do share. God bless
