Title: What If the Earth Does Not Exist?

What do you make of this video? Before watching grab something to eat/drink. Its 20 minutes long.

I truly believe that we are living in a simulation but I am still trying to figure out the purpose of this simulation. What might be the aim behind a simulation like ours? Is it why we don't see aliens roaming around in the galaxies cuz this simulation was programmed to be of humans only? How do religions play into this theory? Were they actually introduced by the being or beings running this simulation? But most importantly Does this indirectly mean that "God"/"Gods" exists? This is a very interesting topic for me. So many things come to my mind but I Would love to hear from you guys. Do you think we are living a virtual reality after watching that video? What makes you think this is a reality itself while guys like Elon say otherwise. Leave your thoughts below.
3  Other / New forum software / Merit Button Like trust? on: October 01, 2018, 05:00:53 PM
It would be nice to have the 'merit button' just like the trust one to open up the merit history of the user. I know all it takes is 2 additional clicks to achieve it, But it gets annoying when you are hunting for merit-sellers.

8  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-09-09] Lightning Network Comes to 4,000 Merchants Worldwide Via Coingate on: September 09, 2018, 10:15:02 AM
From the article: Lithuanian blockchain payment processor CoinGate, which was founded in 2014, has announced that over 4,000 merchants worldwide that use its services can now accept Bitcoin (BTC) payments over Lightning Network (LN), a "second layer" payment protocol that enables instant, scalable, and low-cost Bitcoin transactions.


Dmitrijus Borisenka, co-founder and CEO of CoinGate, says that the pilot launch had been successful: “We were pleasantly surprised when we came across tweets of our Lightning Network implementation at the Kasbah Bar in Oslo. You may have heard critics claiming, ‘you can’t buy coffee with Bitcoin’. Well, we’re not sure about coffee, but buying beer with Bitcoin within a second for zero fees is definitely possible in Oslo"

Who's up for some beer? On a serious note tho. We need Payment Processors Like Coingate to adapt to these changes, Only these people can bring the LN to the masses. Interesting times ahead for sure to say the least. How will community react to the LN once it gets some traction? Will the people who invested in BTC to get rich Quick will start to use BTC as their daily driver? What will it take to change their mindset? I don't believe that one day a guy who is hodling for years will suddenly start to use BTC as his daily driver.

The common fundamental weakness of crowdfunding and venture capital is the lack of liquidity. By nature, this excludes from the equation all investors that are reluctant or cannot aff ord to have their funds locked for several years. Coming up with solutions for improving liquidity is a big trend in 2018. The need for a secondary market is a crucial element in bringing new investors to young and innovative companies.


Blockchain technology can reshape the way investors own and trade ownership. We believe the market is mature enough to combine the power of blockchain technology with the best practices of venture capital, private equity, and crowdfunding in order to issue security tokens to trade on a secondary peer to peer exchange, using smart contracts, in a regulated framework.


Transactions of securities are highly regulated. Ledgity’s solution will help remove anonymity features that are typically associated with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin so that security tokens can achieve mass adoption through compliant solutions that offer investor protection by authorities. “Know Your Customer” (KYC) and “Anti-Money Laundering” (AML) are critical for more transparency, regulation and growth. On our platform, KYC will be embedded to identify and verify all users and investors. Ledgity will bring the best practices in terms of KYC/AML requirements.


LTY utility tokens are designed to be used in the Ledgity ecosystem at several levels. LTY tokens will be used for peer to peer security token trading and for access to features on the mobile platform and tokenization tools.

Core Team

The team is composed of hedge fund managers, entrepreneurs, investors and software engineers.

10  Other / Meta / Community-Led Development of Bitcointalk? on: September 04, 2018, 01:16:14 AM
Since Theymos has recently said that he is short-handed, I think its about time this should be discussed. Should Community-Led development of bitcointalk be a thing? There have been many great suggestions in the "Community generated suggestions" thread. Many of these ideas/suggestions would take years to get implemented at the current development pace, No Offence. What I want to propose here is to allow the community developers to offer a helping hand to theymos.

There are certain pros and cons to this. The biggest con is making bitcointalk's code open to the public. Which would mean if there are any loose ends in the code, a rogue developer could exploit them. Obviously, these developers won't work on the 'live' version of bitcointalk. The code written by them will be first published to a GitHub Repository where 'theymos' and other developers would validate it before implementing on the live version.

Another con would be, We will see Copies of bitcointalk pop-up everywhere, making phishing easier for hackers.

The biggest Pro is the obvious one i.e Rapid Development of new features. Personally, I don't know whether this one 'Pro' will outweigh all the cons which community-led development may bring. But I would like to hear your opinion on this. Should something like this take place? Or Theymos should consider hiring new people to work on the development of bitcointalk with him. Also, Theymos has yet to explain us why he hasn't been hiring staff for the development of bitcointalk. Funding doesn't seems to be an issue here, Is 'trust' really the major factor behind not hiring people? Or is there something else which is preventing him for not working with people outside of his 'inner circle'. Whatever the reason may be, I think its about time we as a community get some answers.

12  Bitcoin / Project Development / Spam Filter Plugin on: September 01, 2018, 08:48:21 PM
I wanted to know can a plugin interact with the page user is on? What I want to accomplish via this plugin is to automatically ignore the users who have received no merit. So E.g A Jr.member with 0 merit should be ignored automatically or via a click. Can something like this be coded on the plugin? Also, how much will it cost to code this out?

14  Other / Meta / Spamming Bots! Promoting shit ICOs on: August 27, 2018, 10:02:42 AM
Was just browsing the altcoin mining section, It seems new kind of bots have popped up.

First, I encountered this in VoskCoin's Thread, I thought it was just a bot account trying to Rank up by creating spam posts and deleting them down the line.

TalentSnap is a new word in the sphere of hiring. Its’ ecosystem can only exist with the use of a token - called TalentSnap Coin (TSC) - the key to transmitting one’s data across the Blockchain. With TSC, employers and candidates alike can make use of FitScore to find their perfect fit counterpart, and seeding nodes in the ecosystem. Now we can purchase them with 40% bonus, can you imagine? Roll Eyes

But then I encountered this.

TalentSnap is all about Automating Hiring with Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence Technologies. They are going to change everything connected with hiring! This year alone, the team has partnered with more than 30 Blockchain startups to grow their teams. TalentSnap creators are so experienced and forward-looking people, that’s why I’ve joined their ICO! Grin

They are using bots to spam around the forum!  Undecided  When will we as a community start to take action Huh I don't know whats next! We have already got people bumping up ICO threads, Signature spammers, Farmers and now this :/

We need to take action now! Rather than sit on our asses and debate this shit out. Captcha for newbies should be implemented right away, Or shadowban them till one of the mods approve them.
15  Economy / Gambling discussion / How do you make a Player vs Player Game Fair? on: August 23, 2018, 06:13:18 PM
I am currently working on a project but I am stuck on making its gameplay fair. Here is the issue I am facing. It is a Round based game. A server seed is set for each round and 10 people participate in that. The server seed is the same for everyone but the issue is I can participate myself in the round and as I will have access to the "Unhashed" server seed I can set my client seed in such a way to win over everyone else. So it isn't fair to just use a server + client seed Provable fair system for a game like this. I am wondering what could be done to prevent "tampering/cheating" even if the "house" decides to participate in the round.

17  Economy / Games and rounds / 🏏 🏏 BitcoinTalk's Cricket Pool | 0.005 BTC to join | Pot 0.05 BTC 🏏 🏏 on: August 09, 2018, 08:20:47 PM

This Pool is a direct inspiration from hilariousandco's Bitcointalk's English Premier league pool. I am looking for only 10 people to join for the first month to kick things off. As the Caribbean Premier League has launched yesterday. I believe this is the best time to start things off.

The entry fee is 0.005 BTC, The Pot will become 0.05 BTC once the 10 members have joined. If I manage to get a sponsor the pot will only go up. Prize distribution will be as follow.

1st prize 0.02 BTC.
2nd prize 0.015 BTC.
3rd prize 0.0075 BTC.
4th prize 0.005 BTC.
5th Prize 0.0025 BTC.

The Pool rounds will last 30 days each.

How will the things work?
I will create a post in the Games & round section. I will post upcoming games each day. You guys can place your predictions in the following format there.

Game: RSA vs Srilanka
Toss: RSA to Win. (10 points)
Win: RSA (10 points)
Runs: By 50 runs (10 points).
Wickets: By 4 wickets (10 points).

A margin of +/- 20 Runs will be applied. So E.g South Africa scored 280 runs and Srilanka got all out on 220 runs. That means South Africa won by a margin of 70 runs. You will be credited 10 points for being in range. 50+20 = 70 runs.

A margin of +/- 2 wickets will be applied too.

To join the pool, Send 0.005 BTC to this address: 3EWG3btpyRsWYTA6QJXhZSWmf6LhPGcNi9

Once the 10 Members have joined, We will kick the things officially. This thread can be used for Banter/Discussions. I will create a spreadsheet of scores and post its link here. It will be updated after each game.

I will be the first one to join this. 9 Spots remaining.

19  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-07-31] Millennials 5 times more likely than adults to save BTCs for future on: July 31, 2018, 10:12:13 AM
From the article: The future of bitcoin remains a topic of hot debate, but young people are significantly more likely to trust the cryptocurrency than their older counterparts.

That's according to a new survey from Bankrate, which found that 5 percent of millennials (defined, in this case, as those aged 18 to 37) say bitcoin is the best place to put money they won't need for 10 years or more. Only 1.2 percent of Gen X-ers (ages 38 to 53) favor it for long-term saving, and less than 1 percent of boomers (ages 54 to 72) do.

My thoughts: Being a Millennial myself i think the same. I have recommended my dad and other family members to invest in BTC. Most of them don't understand the technology and some of them just want to profit off from it. I remember when i said to my dad when BTC was at 1.5K USD Last year to buy at least 2 BTC but he said he won't invest in something virtual, One of his friends said its a Ponzi. The Same dude bought BTCs when it reached $6K after the drop from $20K. On the other hand, my Best Bud who bought 6 BTC Last year at $1.2K is still holding them. He could have profited at when BTC reached $20K but he believes in the technology and is hodling like a champ.

Wouldn't recommend you guys to read the article, its all the usual BS which goes around from BTC being too volatile to never put all your eggs in one basket etc.
