1  Other / Meta / Is this allowed?? Or could it be consider as spamming? on: January 13, 2024, 06:31:13 PM
I visited my local board, and I saw one user post a bounty thread on it. I wanted to direct him to the right place to send it, but I saw that other users had already done that. Upon checking his post history, I noticed the user had already shared the same bounty thread with the same content on three different local boards, and only the one on the Chinese local board was a little bit translated.

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / EOS BLOCKCHAIN on: December 28, 2023, 10:56:06 PM
Has anyone used the EOS blockchain recently? It's been a long time since I saw any project emerge under the blockchain, and even though it seems like the season is for some altcoins, I have not also seen EOS coins trending or making some big profit. Is the blockchain still alive, or have its competitors completely sidelined it?
 
I just looked at my old crypto currency book, and I happened to find out that I have used and owned the blockchain native token before, which brought the name back to mind.
 
So it will be nice to hear from anyone who might have used the blockchain or owned the coin recently. Let's know if there are any latest developments from them.
3  Economy / Gambling discussion / Which type of gambling have more gambling addicts ? on: December 18, 2023, 07:08:41 PM
I don't know if this has been discussed before or not.
 
Reading about gambling addiction I don't think it's a new topic, but fitting to be in here, I just want to ask: between casino gambling, in-house gambling, and one-on-one gambling with physical players available on the table, which among these is more likely to turn someone into a gambling addict if the person doesn't have self-control in all his gambling activities?
 
Now are days I see much or all this in house gamblers becoming addicted and acting weird over gambling results, and walking down into some betting shop, you will see most of those gamblers spending their whole day in the gambling shop, which made me have the above question. I know any form of gambling can produce gambling addicts, but among all, there is one that is most common, which is what I want to hear from others.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Some of bitcoin's aim and purpose have been trampled upon on: November 09, 2023, 11:05:54 PM
Am I the only one seeing this recent happening on the high transaction's fee of bitcoin as a direct attack on bitcoin purpose?
 
Some of the things that make bitcoin unique and part of its purpose are: privacy, decentralisation, transparency, security, seamless transactions, and above all, financial freedom. Being in control of your holdings—when I say control, I mean total control—you decide when to spend your holdings and when not to spend them, and there is no limitation in terms of when they could be used.
 
But based on the recent happenings on the transaction fee, which is a result of the network being too congested, which is a result of the Ordinal and the hype that follows with the minted NFT on the network, now an average holder who wants to make some transactions can't execute a smooth transaction when ever they want to or however they want it to be, the network is now for the rich, and those willing to pay the high fee get their transaction to the top.
 
When someone can no longer use the network and perform transactions however they want without being forced to either use the lightning network that's for those who know how to set that up or being forced to make use of some other shit altcoins out of their whereabouts, is that freedom?
 
Some of bitcoin's aim and purpose have been trampled upon, which don't look good on the network at all.
5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Greed or risk on: October 28, 2023, 10:37:55 PM
I saw this image below on one of my friend's WhatsApp statuses earlier today. I don't know if the game was played by him or if it was an image saved from somewhere, but the image got me thinking, and we got into a debate because of that.
 
I was telling someone that if I'm the one to have such a slip and the game is already showing me to cash out such an amount of money, which is equal to $865 based on our local exchange rate, seeing such an amount as cash out available and leaving it will make me appear like someone who is too greedy, but the guy was telling me it's not being greedy but it's all about taking risks. The debate didn't end well, so I decided to bring this up here to see the responses from experienced gamblers.
 
Lucky for anyone who ever has that bet slip, it seems like the game played in his favour.
6  Bitcoin / Wallet software / What could be the cause of this? on: October 24, 2023, 05:03:07 PM
There is a recent strange behaviour that trust wallet users are experiencing currently that those who are using it could be able to identify as an uncommon hange.
 
A friend contacted me earlier today regarding how his balance is no longer visible on the trust wallet, but the BTC figures are there but the fait value is no longer attached to it. I advised him to download the blue wallet and import his wallet using the phras he has in it; then he should also create a new wallet using the blue wallet and move his BTC holding over to the new blue wallet. He has done the wallet creation on the blue wallet, but when trying to send out the coin to the new address, this error is showing.



This screenshot was taken and sent over to me, which is something I have not experienced before. Can anyone explain the cause of this to me and how to resolve it?
 
7  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / Some common scam which you might already be familiar with on: October 09, 2023, 12:12:33 AM
There are three types of scams, which I'm going to share here today. There is no point in creating three different threads for each of them, as I will try to make it brief.
 
1. Scammers targeting Opay, PalmPay, and other microfinance banks: There have been rumours (or they can't consider them to be rumours again since I have had no experience with them) that someone who might claim to be a customer support representative or agent from any of the microfinance banks will talk with you politely with most of your details, which they already have on their table. How they get someone's number is not hard at all considering the fact that most of these online payments use personal numbers as their account numbers. They will talk about some form of promotional offer that they want to help you activate in your account in order to be eligible. To cut the story short, they will send you a withdrawal code to your number, and if you communicate it to them, your funds are gone. How they go about this, I don't know.
 
2. Fake calls from scammers: The scammer will call their victim, pretending to be a close friend to their relative, whom they will claim to either have an accident or something terrible happened to the person, for which they have to rush the said person to the hospital or police station. How they will call your name and the name of your relative is what surprises me, and at that very moment, the number of your relative or those who might happen to be close to them appears to usually be unavailable, so there is no way to confirm the authenticity of the information, and a sum will be demanded, which they will claim is to be used for hospital bills. But they are just scams. They have called me, which I almost fell victim to, but lucky enough, someone who has had such experience was close to me and explained everything in detail, which I later called my relative to clear my doubt, and she was safe and sound. Most people who are unaware have fallen victim to such scams.
 
3. This part is what I believe most people have known in his forum: it was added to a WhatsApp group this evening from an unknown number, which I have reported and blocked, and they claim to be investment people whom they have been dropping some fake testimonies and all of that trying to deceive people to invest with them, which I find very funny with the kind of testimony that they drop from different WhatsApp users that appear to be controlled by one person. Any where I come across we are 100% real I always run for my life, this is purely scam and most people might likely fall victim of it.
 
8  Bitcoin / Wallet software / Question about Imported wallet and its address on: September 29, 2023, 01:29:39 PM
I have an important question about importing wallets from either trust wallets to blue wallets or trust wallets to Electrum.

Reading through posts about the best Bitcoin wallet to use here in this forum, I happened to understand that TrustWallet is not in any way recommended as it is not open source, so now I decided to use my old wallet created using the TrustWallet multiwallet option, which accepts both bitcoin and other altcoins (that apart). I used the generated phrase to import it into my blue wallet and that of electrum on my mobile device.
 
Upon doing this, the blue wallet gave me a new bitcoin address, which I can start using for receiving new incoming transactions. My old balance on my old wallet is still visible with the blue wallet, but when I click on the receive option, I see a total different address, and on the address icon inside the blue wallet, I notice that I still have about 20 unused addresses, and my imported address has been marked as used.

Here comes the question:
1. If I happen to use any of the generated addresses from BlueWallet that are attached to my phrase, can I spend them using my trust wallet? Since I can still spend anything from my old address using a blue wallet or even my electrum, trust wallet allows me to do the same thing, as I can't fine any of such options on trust wallet.
2. Among the new addresses that were generated, if I happen to receive new coins into them and I want to spend just the coin I received with the new address, leaving the old one that came with it when I imported the address, will it be possible for me to specify which address I want to be debited from? And if yes, will my transactions also be linked to my old bitcoin address, which I have been using in the past?
 
These are just questions running through my head out of curiosity.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin User Just Paid Half a Million Dollars for a Single Transaction on: September 11, 2023, 05:22:16 AM
Just happened to jump into this right now
https://twitter.com/whale_alert/status/1700920065934213256
A bitcoin user who happens to pay 19 BTC for a single transaction which the transaction is worth less which is a total of 0.0740544BTC.

My question here is:
1. What are the possible reason for such kind of mistake, was this as a result of custom fee configuration where the user was trying to customize the fee to execute the transaction faster and made a mistake of inputting the fee in place of transacted amount and amount to be transacted on the fee option.

2. Could there be able possible way of recovering from such an incident? Can those fee be returned to the person by the miners? Or let him just consider everything as his lose and live with it.

It’s really disheartening to read such a story, as this could really be a big lose to the sender as this is worth more than half a million dollars.

I happen to follow up the site and check out the quiz if i can gain some crypto knowledge, but there where just few information relating to crypto and they are very simple, which the answer you can just click anything and it will not tell you if it's correct or not and I happen to answer the quiz question completely, a new page POP up, showing for me to claim free $150 ERC-20. Indeed it is an alarming amount enough to convince someone in falling into their scam trap.
Next page required me to connect my wallet to their site using any of the provided method.

11  Economy / Economics / Advises 'Get Rid of Your US Dollars Now (Economist Peter Schiff) on: April 11, 2023, 09:05:07 AM
Quote
Gold bug and economist Peter Schiff has urged U.S. dollar holders to get rid of their USD now. He tweeted Friday:
"How much clearer does the writing on the wall need to be? Get rid of your U.S. dollars now, while there’s still enough people who still can’t read it."

"The dollar’s reserve currency status is in jeopardy, as is the American standard of living that depends on it. The best move you can make to mitigate your personal loss is to divest of dollars and dollar-denominated financial assets".

The economist has repeatedly issued warnings about the state of the U.S. economy and the looming devaluation of the U.S. dollar. In a recent tweet, he cautioned that the U.S. economy is “poised on the biggest economic disaster in its history,” emphasizing that we are on the cusp of a financial crisis that will be bigger than the last one.

Schiff also tweeted Thursday:
"Soon everyone in America will be a multi millionaire. But don’t get too excited. Chewing gum will sell for over $1,000 per pack and all those higher taxes meant to soak today’s millionaires and billionaires will drench tomorrow’s middle class".

We have seen lately how many individual bodies, government representative of different country's have been on the motion of finding another alternative to the US dollar, which many are already adopting to new international payment currency, why others are still using it to some point.

Read lots of article lately regarding Dedollarisation, my question here are:
Are we totally ready for the so called "DEDOLLARISATION" ?
Will there be any negative impact on the world economy if a hatch decision is being taken towards abandoning the USD for any alternative?

13  Other / Beginners & Help / Curiosity question on: October 14, 2022, 01:50:57 AM
When I first register for this forum my first search was Satoshi
 I was curious about knowing if the name I have been hearing everywhere was actually the same person who created this forum before then I already concluded believe the user was actually the owner before I searched it, then after the search, I saw a position badge " founder " which made me confirmed my guess.
But I just recently came across a post where a high-rank user of this forum corrected a member that satoshi is not the owner of this forum.
Quote
Satoshi does not own bitcoin.org, it belongs to Cobra.

I am curious and want to really know who owns the forum and its relationship to bitcoin in other for me not to mislead the public with wrong information if i happen to be ask any where.

Thanks
