1  Economy / Exchanges / Is there any centralized altcoin exchanges that dont require KYC at all? on: July 24, 2019, 07:32:35 AM
I am looking for centralized exchanges that don't require KYC at all, not just for smaller volumes or certain conditions,... and I seem to have a hard time finding any!
there was Bittrex that scammed. then there was Binance that changed the rules and enforced it.
there were also small exchanges like c-cex that died, Yobit which is pure crap and cryptopia which again died!
2  Other / Beginners & Help / how scammers are using newcomers' greed against them on: July 17, 2019, 06:39:15 PM
I just read this thing on reddit and it is quite funny and at the same time it can be very educational for beginners around here to see how there are scammers out there that will use their greed to take their money from them.
you should always try to use your head and do some research before handing your money over to a random person on the internet!
direct link to the chat screenshots:

some funny quotes:
bitcoin mining is an automatic trading software and tools that allow individuals and institutional customers to trade online that enables them make good profit within a short period of time
you will earn 10btc within 48 hours of time
[-who is bitmain?]
it's the machine that mines bitcoin faster
[-oh I thought he's a superhero]
and of course the funniest thing is that he scammed the scammer out of $1 Cheesy
3  Other / Meta / It may be time to remove "Multibit" from Factoids... on: October 15, 2018, 07:17:26 AM
among Factoid there are two of them that mention Multibit specifically the following:
•Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

this wallet is now deprecated since it is no longer being developed and it contains bugs that were never solved. and it has been a year. so it is "not OK" to use it anymore!
for reference:
4  Economy / Speculation / Another large scale altcoin dump and bitcoin price was brought down! on: September 05, 2018, 05:42:06 PM
another massive altcoin dump has been going on today specially in big coins like Ethereum which actually was among the biggest dumped coins today with nearly 20% drop. and that led to a small but still a 5% drop in bitcoin price today.

interestingly enough despite all that bitcoin price is still pretty close to $7k mark and it is resisting all the money that is exiting from the altcoin market through bitcoin causing this sell pressure in bitcoin market.

people always say bitcoin drops makes altcoins dump. but this example among a lot of others is showing it is the other way around in a lot of cases.
I am wondering how many more times do we have to see these types of dumps before we start accepting there is a big problem with the altcoin market and that is damaging bitcoin too.
5  Economy / Exchanges / What happened to NovaExchange? on: June 20, 2018, 04:35:02 AM
months ago when they said they are going to close down or possibly sell the site I withdrew my funds and got out. today I checked it again and it seems like everything has gone through and they successfully changed ownership.

the problem is that I can no longer log in to my account. it fails to log in saying your password is wrong (which I am 100% sure is not) and when I try resetting it I see the error saying my Email is not recognized.

so is there any way to recover this account (I think I had some small amounts of some altcoins there which I would like getting back) or do I have to create a new account now?
6  Economy / Trading Discussion / going from X to Y challenges in Z months... on: January 28, 2018, 08:35:52 AM
I have been around quite a while now and I have seen a lot of people start up these "challenge" type of topics here saying something like "going from 0.01BTC to 1BTC in .... months". I sometimes follow them a while but I never see them in long term. as if they give up or get bored with updating it here!

so my first Q is has anyone finished any of these so far?

I want it mostly for motivational purposes Tongue I have been away from trading for a while and I wanted to get back on the horse again, probably in a month or two in March when the market is heated up to the max again.

if you have any suggestions, I am all ears.
my plan is to start with something between 0.01BTC-0.1BTC and try to make 100% profit each month (increase 2x monthly).
7  Economy / Service Discussion / has anyone tried investment? on: October 11, 2017, 09:42:48 AM
I was always skeptical about investment and all the changes they have made, but it seems like they are doing fine after all this time. the site is turned into a proper gambling site instead of just being a faucet.

I tried their investment (4.08% annual profit) by making a small deposit and by following the funds I see their main wallet currently contains 508BTC that is $2.4 million!

does anyone have any feedback on their services?

for example I didn't find any Contacts/support/ticket section on the site. what do you do if you have an issue?
8  Economy / Speculation / China banning bitcoin is the oldest trick in the book on: September 18, 2017, 08:04:19 AM
does this chart look familiar to you?

no this is not the current chart, it is old. belonging to more than 6 months ago.

now lets fast forward to today:

same story, same dip, same people panicking and same other people buying their coins with a wolfish grin on their faces Grin

I leave finding the rest of the times China "banned bitcoin" to you. there are at least 2 more...
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / I will celebrate the day China bans bitcoin for real on: September 09, 2017, 07:44:21 AM
... but I fear I won't be able to celebrate that day ever Cry

if you have been around for a while then you have already seen a couple of dumps like yesterday's which are mostly starting the same! some fake news, or some exaggerated news is coming out from China and then panic begins! it has been like this ever since 2013 at least. someone farts in China and there is a tsunami on bitcoin exchanges in USD (although yesterday was small wave). Grin

I don't know how many of you, who are panic selling are Chinese that care so much about Chinese news?

anyways, now my of my wishes is that China finally bans bitcoin for real so we can stop talking about it. it is just getting too old. and FUDsters are getting lazy too. they can just copy paste last month's FUD and just change the number in it with current price!
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / bitcoin is outperforming everything and Japan is the lead on: August 13, 2017, 05:45:23 AM
with bitcoin price breaking the $4000 price barrier we are on the rise to the moon.

meanwhile looking at the market, the Japanese are showing an extraordinary demand for bitcoin. currently 46% of the total volume comes from Japan in August alone. source: CryptoCompare

there is obviously an increased interest from investors in bitcoin instead of alternatives such as gold, stocks and bonds these days and that is growing fast.

11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / @RogerVer can little guys get in on this deal too on: July 26, 2017, 06:42:30 AM
I would to make a deal too. I am by no means a whale nor a little fish and I would love to trade the coin that I believe in (BTC) for the coin that you believe in (BCC) with a 1 for 1 (1:1) trade. (my BCC for your BTC)

I see the whale offers and I want in on it Grin

I am not yet sure about all the details of this process but with a trusted escrow and a 2 of 3 multisig I am down. I am sure there are a lot of little fishes like me who would love this deal also.

p.s. I will lock any amount I have, will get, will buy, will earn for at least 5 years so the current prices doesn't matter to me at all.
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / [F2Pool and SegWit] is the "Wang" at it again? *not anymore on: July 20, 2017, 10:26:18 AM
in case you don't remember here is the twitter games Wang Chun of F2Pool played during the Litecoin SegWit activation.

F2Pool has clearly been supporting NYA agreement also known as SegWit2x with their coinbase text
F/NYA/,mmX刔f㹭9,kۖT&J🐟Mined by andjeloketh

but for some reason their block versions are still 0x20000002 instead of being 0x20000012 to indicate both.

I couldn't find anything on his twitter though. I don't know how else they announce stuff like this. is this just trolling or did they forget how to signal Cheesy
if anyone has more information on this please share here.

on another note it doesn't seem to matter! according to stats currently there is 80% support without F2Pool!!! and in the end it won't matter because they ARE signaling for SegWit with bit 1, even if they don't change anything and BIP91 activates everything is still fine.
13  Economy / Service Discussion / Overview of exchange withdrawal fees Update: 2017-8-30 on: June 20, 2017, 04:02:33 AM
with the increase in bitcoin transaction fees many exchanges also increased their bitcoin withdrawal fees, since I am using a lot of them, I've decided to make a topic listing their withdrawal fees here.

In descending order:

Exchange name|Withdrawal fee in BTC|Source
Poloniex|0.00010000|Slow death|0.00010000(?)|Website
GDax (coinbase)|0.00087605|EXtremeAEX

- source website means I opened up their fee page and it was written there.
- source experience means I have an account there and made a withdrawal and it cost me that much.

if you know any that I've missed and want me to add, post it here. or if anything is wrong feel free to correct it.
14  Economy / Speculation / bitcoin charts == Déjà vu on: May 27, 2017, 03:17:18 AM
sometimes pictures speak better than a thousand words.
all these are with the same zoom level and all at 12h steps taken from bitcoinwisdom the bitstamp market. except the first picture which is 1 day steps because  bitcoinwisdom doesn't load that much!

and finally what we have today:

15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / This could be big: US Government considering accepting bitcoin payment on: May 16, 2017, 04:59:23 AM
Homeland Security's US Citizenship and Immigration is now considering accepting bitcoin payment for US Visa application/payment fees

the documents from website reads:
"USCIS is currently considering issues involving virtual currency such as Bitcoin." related to "the use of bitcoin to transfer investment funds to the new commercial enterprise".
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / $1MM segwit bounty on: May 14, 2017, 07:47:46 AM
I am just sharing this from reddit and posting it in bitcoin board since it is SegWit related for the most part. and I am only interested in that part.

A lot of people have been saying that segwit is unsafe because segwit coins are "anyone-can-spend" and can be stolen. So lets put this to the test. I put up $1MM of LTC into a segwit address. You can see it's a segwit address because I sent and spent 1 LTC first to reveal the redeemscript.
Let's see if segwit really is "anyone-can-spend" or not.
Good luck.

link to the original reddit post:

here is to hoping Litecoin clarifies as many things as it can about SegWit so we can finally move on from this bullshit state we are currently stuck in!
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / One of many reasons why I love bitcoin on: May 08, 2017, 08:00:06 AM
this is one of the many transactions that I received, this was from some small exchange that I was trading there for fun and to learn more about how to use API in my bot and I cashed out all my balance worth $7.48.

and this is my cold storage, which has been taking deposits ever since 2014 Cool:

updated on 2017-05-25 for the same transaction.

updated on 2017-08-29 for the same transaction.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / is there any news for STEEM that led to the pump on: April 16, 2017, 07:11:20 AM
from earlier this morning (local time) I found out with an alert that STEEM is rising up and surely enough that rise haven't yet stopped and price is still rising. so far less than 20% rise.

I couldn't find anything on it. so my guess is a normal pump and the normal pumper money moving around to 100%-200% pump each coin and get out to the next.

if there is anything else please fill me in too.

also how much do you think this will go up. it is a small market and it has gone up to 33000 satoshi recently so that can be a good target price in my opinion.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / [F2Pool and SegWit] What do we think of the "Wang" on: April 15, 2017, 08:05:18 AM
So here is the summary, or story of the Wang if you want to call it that!
(I'll try to make this as accurate as possible by checking dates but I may have missed some stuff).

Litecoin price starts going up (30 March) then after the initial pump and when it slows down F2Pool (one of the biggest mining pools on both bitcoin and litecoin) starts signaling SegWit.
Wang Chun tweets are all positive for SegWit.

Syscoin SegWit activation was a big success:

litecoin pump reaches its max limit (5 Apr)

Wang starts tweeting about changing his mind and SegWit being a bad idea.

Concern about Litecoin core code becoming different from bitcoin:

Trolling about stopping signaling of SegWit at 74.9%

"F2Pool: "I’ve to reconsider segwit on LTC. It makes copy code from BTC harder if LTC to activate it but BTC does else. No good news to LTC’s devel."
deleted tweet:

price of litecoin drops (6-9 Apr) down -35%

I was never against SegWit on Litecoin (12 Apr)

litecoin price goes up the same day 28%

now the same story on bitcoin

SegWit is a disaster on bitcoin! (12 Apr)

DDoS attack and then saying we are signaling SegWit because of it! (13 Apr)

Since users want SegWit we will activate it on both BTC and LTC! (15 Apr - 7 hours ago)
(does anyone have anymore info on this poll he is talking about and who and how many voted on it).

and finally the last 3 blocks mined by F2Pool are signaling SegWit:
461954, 461949, 461935
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Price Parity, from "Shave and a Haircut" to "Gold" and beyond on: April 03, 2017, 05:54:56 AM
I was searching around and I found this old topic by Hal Finney from back in 2011, Shave and a haircut, two bitcoins

Just noticed that we've reached "shave and a haircut" parity. The old secret knock is becoming true once again.

Bitcoin's price has reached parity with the per-ounce spot price of gold, according to the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index (BPI).

The per-ounce spot price for gold is $1,237.73, according to the XAU/USD spot exchange rate provided by Bloomberg Markets. Bitcoin's price, by comparison, is at $1,238.11, having opened the day at $1,230.02, BPI data shows.

it is funny sometimes when you look back and see the same talks going on back in early years but about a different price. and this is just one example
