1  Other / Off-topic / Stranger things season 3 - Your thoughts and complaints about it on: July 04, 2019, 10:16:18 PM
Just so the summer season really gets into the swing of things
So does netflix by releasing their third season of the really popular series Stranger things today and being on the fourth of July you know what it is going to be focused on in this season. Wink

https://techcrunch.com/2019/07/04/stranger-things-3-is-now-available-on-netflix

Not surprising there has been a five star review on it

If your a child of the 80s then you will get every reference in the series and well enjoy all the tie ins from other movies to the era of ghostbusters and invasion of the body snatchers. Cheesy
2  Economy / Economics / Can not believe 5 years ago you could of bought one whole bitcoin for this much! on: July 02, 2019, 12:36:32 PM
For $651~ you could of got yourself a shiny whole bitcoin on coinbase plus their $6.66 fee.
I wouldnt of mind paying this fee on top regardless.
Even if they were asking 10% of the purchase amount at the time which is probably more by now. Wink
3  Economy / Invites & Accounts / Hashflare account with 0.279eth available to withdraw just needs verification on: June 30, 2019, 03:31:38 PM
Hashflare which is a reputable company and still allowing people to withdraw their funds remaining even if their previous contracts have expired.
I was actively doing withdrawals from them until they required verification on any withdrawals to be processed starting late last year.
I am not wanting to submit id as the account does not have any information in the profile expect for the email address which I can have a support ticket created to have it changed to yours. They reply within a matter of 24-48 hours of any requests for assistance I might have had in the past and are very friendly when doing this for me last time I needed to change it due to an email being compromised which I think they deal with all the time so it is second nature to them in dealing with these requests.
For this rather small amount in ethereum I would rather just receive the amount from someone either in eth or xrp and hand them over the account once the email address change has been approved.
Withdrawals are done within minutes of clicking on the withdraw button on the site.

PM me if you would want to do this as the ethereum contract on the account expires in a month from now and only gets about $0.05 in ethereum per day since the larger one I had on there expired in december of last year.

5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Poland bank starts to use blockchain for documentation authenication big step! on: June 17, 2019, 01:25:54 PM
With some banks in the US dipping their toes into using blockchain technology for their banking business but only offering it on an invite only basis. This bank being one of the top 10 banks in poland is starting to use it on a daily basis and to a wider customer base.

This is a major step for the banking system in starting to use it and the beginning of acceptance in using and relying on it for wider functionality.
6  Economy / Currency exchange / Is there a way to exchange dogecoin for eth without using an exchange? on: June 16, 2019, 03:33:08 AM
I am wanting to know if there is a way to exchange a small amount of dogecoin around 3700 without needing to use an exchange because just to exchange then withdraw the amount of ethereum getting back once it is completed the transaction fee is half the amount after the exchange is done. Roll Eyes
Tried sites like changelly but they only take 10,500 dogecoins minimum per exchange at the time of this writing.
And dont have any exchange accounts like kraken or bittrex to do this either.
According to https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/dogecoin it is around $12.

So if anybody wants to do a trade 1:1 let me know.

8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Crypto news website CCN going to be shutdown due to google on: June 10, 2019, 06:32:02 PM
The mining youtuber who had made a large cryptonews website giving daily uptodate information on the activities going on in the market has been forced to shutdown their website due to the recent google core update.

https://www.ccn.com/ccn-is-shutting-down-after-googles-june-2019-core-update

This is shocking news to me as I followed the guy when he was just starting out with his mining farm in a warehouse and moved into a mega farm based in georgia.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What are bomb tokens? on: June 10, 2019, 06:25:20 PM
If you go to their website you see a countdown of the tokens which are to be burned. It is at 974,441 right now and goes down by 100's per hour.
It goes down with every transaction is done.
So what is the point of it when the counter eventually runs to 0?

It is an experiment I know but it is a legit alt coin to buy and not lose your crypto when it quantity is completed burned up?
Doesnt make much sense to me to invest into it.
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Indian btc traders suicide paying off senior cop for investment made during ATH on: May 21, 2019, 04:18:26 PM
An Indian Bitcoin Trader Hangs Himself, Blames Senior Cop in Suicide Note

Here is an excerpt from the article to grasp what kind of pressure he was in to come up with these two brothers bitcoin investments:

"In a suicide note, Patel explained that he had invested money belonging to the two brothers in bitcoin. Allegedly the senior police officer had invested an amount worth five bitcoins at an unspecified time. But following a decline in the price, the two brothers now wanted a little over 11 bitcoins as compensation..

SENIOR COP WAS DEMANDING A LEG AND AN ARM

Patel did not disclose the exact time the investment was made. But the brothers’ demands could suggest that the investment was made when prices were higher than now. The two brothers are seeking more than double the bitcoins they had invested in as compensation.

At the current prices, the 11.575 bitcoins that the two brothers are demanding are worth around $92,000.

Per Patel’s wife, Usha, the bitcoin trader had tried to convince the two brothers to accept payment in installments. However, they insisted on a lump sum payment. The two brothers were also demanding that interest be paid on the principal amount that they had invested. The suicide note did not reveal the rate."

Very tragic endings for those not knowing what they are getting into as it can be a catalyst just as money could for these random acts of violence towards ones self. Sad
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / HitBTC the next exchange to become insolvent customers not able to withdraw fund on: May 19, 2019, 05:00:28 PM
Heard about this rather well known exchange among the cryptocurrency exchange having issues with settling customers requests to process their withdrawals a few weeks ago.
https://ambcrypto.com/hitbtc-is-insolvent-claim-customers-facing-trouble-withdrawing-funds-for-several-weeks
Didnt think much of it and thought it would just clear itself up eventually.

But then reading about an article just posted today about them asking full kyc or they will keep any customers funds.
https://www.ccn.com/hitbtc-users-shout-fraud-kyc

So they are holding any cryptocurrency a customer has in their accounts hostage for those who do not comply?
Is this acceptable and have other exchanges done this in the past without giving a time frame to be able withdraw your funds if you do not want to go through the process of verifying your exchange account this way?
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Ethereum difficulty dropped significantly today on: May 15, 2019, 06:25:33 PM
Did anyone else notice the difficulty of ethereum on the largest pool out there for those who mine it has dropped a very larger amount?
What could of caused this and what effect does this have on the ones who mine it?
I think it means more profits for them. Correct me if I am wrong as I dont mine for a full time basis as most on here do.

The number of blocks found have sky dived too.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is eBay looking to accept cryptocurreny on its platform? on: May 13, 2019, 05:06:10 PM

Announced at consensus and a tweet by wolf below could confirm they will start accepting cryptocurrencies for payments in the near future.
https://twitter.com/ImNotTheWolf/status/1127696721230934019

source https://micky.com.au/consensus-pics-speculation-ebay-will-soon-accept-crypto

So if they start accepting payments by cryptocurrency then they will start allowing of selling it on their site as well and having paypal as their partner what does this mean in regards to their terms of service of not being able to make payments for crypto using paypal. Although people still do it regardless but just can not claim they do if there are issues with their purchase. Or paypal will void your claim and point this rule in their policies when it comes to the purchasing of cryptocurrency using their service.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Liechtenstein Government Passes New Regulation for secuirties on: May 10, 2019, 09:07:39 PM
The liechtenstien government wants to put a law to govern the blockchain and tokenization so they arent considered to be securities. Causing issues in the united states and have caused many to lose their investments in those early ico which gave out tokens for funding their projects early 2017 into 2018.
source https://cointelegraph.com/news/liechtensteins-government-passes-new-regulation-concerning-blockchain-and-tokens

Germany also wants regulation on tokens
source https://cointelegraph.com/news/germany-plans-major-digital-token-regulation-effort-in-2019-says-source

So there is still interest when what there is to be done in several countries concerning tokens. Yet the states have not and have strictly outright banned them when it comes to having them viewed under one law calling them securities.

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Project zero a module for mining and to stake coins on: May 06, 2019, 09:17:42 PM
Heard of this raspberry pi modification you will able to mine from although at a very low hashrate and be able to stake any sort of proof of stake coins.
It consumes very little power compared to a barebone pc system or even a laptop would so it could be a better alternative to have this instead of having a system running 24 hours a day just so to collect your reward for staking coins.
Looks pretty promising when they do actually have it ready to release after working out any bugs they might have.

17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Ethereum classic price spiking. What is the reason? Coinbase price way up. on: April 07, 2019, 06:56:03 PM
Whats the deal with ethereum classic pumping up higher then bitcoin all the sudden? Lips sealed
Up 26.5% this morning while bitcoin only up 0.9% since yesterday.
Same for litecoin a few days ago up 100% at one point.
Are these alt coins (rather old ones over 2+ years) breaking away from bitcoins lead and venturing on their own when it comes to price? Undecided
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Elon musk had dogecoin pumping for a while on: April 03, 2019, 05:00:31 PM
Musk had the cryptoverse crowding around for the biggest april fools joke cryptocurrencies had so far.
He was voted on dogecoins twitter as the ceo of the alt coin.
https://www.cryptoglobe.com/latest/2019/04/tesla-ceo-elon-musk-on-dogecoin-doge-it-s-pretty-cool
This caused the coin to pump up in price when he tweeted from his own twitter account he thought "It was pretty cool."
Of course it was all an aprils fool joke when it was posted on his bio as "Former ceo of dogecoin"
https://ambcrypto.com/elon-musk-joins-dogecoin-bandwagon-steps-down-after-being-elected-its-ceo

I know it is an altcoin discussion but got a good laugh at how the news fake or real can influence the price of any coin in the cryptocurrency community as soon as it hits.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin & friends - a cartoon series about bitcoin some restricted content on: April 03, 2019, 12:21:44 AM
I watched the first episode and have to say I found it kind of entertaining.
Even shows metalik at one point in his basement searching about nakomoto. But is he the real satoshi. Cheesy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCi3X3AbgT4

The comments about the episode are a bit more favorable then from the trailer a week ago.

Here is the trailer of this web series I just stumbled on but it makes it look pathetic according from the comments on the trailer.

20  Economy / Gambling discussion / NBA betting thread - Selective games on points over and under on: March 29, 2019, 03:13:55 AM
Wanted to start a predictions thread for the rest of the games available for the nba.
So lets get to what happened for tonights pick I had.

Houston rockets vs denver nuggets.
Now knowing the nuggets have been struggling in their last game it was safe to say they would be this game going into houston with the rockets scoring alot of points but mostly at home.
So having the nuggets for under 106.5 points was a good bet to make.

Will follow up with my pick for tomorrow night after going over the previous nights scores around the league.
