1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / How to claim UNI Token from liquidity pool? on: September 25, 2020, 05:47:16 PM
Hi fellow members,

I need a little help from you regarding Uniswap as I am very new to Defi field. So few days back, I have started liquidity mining with Uniswap. I have invested couple of hundred  dollars in USDT/ETH pool and in 3 days, I can see my fees earned balance is little more than a dollar.

However, whenever I am trying to claim UNI token against that, it is showing there is no claimable UNI in my account. I want to know how can I claim UNI correctly and what should I do to see the UNI tokens available in my account.

Any help will be appreciated!

Regards,
Avikz
2  Local / India / Any place for Indians to securely unlock crypto values? on: September 14, 2020, 02:23:37 PM
Hi all,

Indian banks are on freezing spree again. A lot of news are popping up regarding bank account freezing for transacting in cryptos. Majority of the trades were done on p2p platforms like localbitcoins.

Is there any way for Indians to bypass such risks of p2p trading? Like crypto debit cards where we can directly spend money from the card. Unfortunately polispay doesn't offer services to India.

Do we have a stress free alternative to unlock the values of cryptos without being exposed to such frauds and regulatory hiccups?

Please advise!
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Supreme leader's twitter account hacked - but that's not the main issue! on: September 03, 2020, 06:02:42 AM
Twitter hackers strike again! The twitter account of India's supreme leader Narendra Modi is hacked to seek bitcoin payment. But that's not the main problem! See below,

My dad was reading newspapers from his tab while having morning tea and suddenly uttered - "this bitcoin thing is ruining everything online" (definitely he used local language but it is the literal translation)!

While I immediately cleared his doubt about bitcoin but that's how majority of the common people have reacted because bitcoin is now associated with all small/major hacks happening worldwide!

Sometimes I really feel, it's good to have a centralized authority who can take corrective measures to protect the goodwill of bitcoin. We are loosing reputation fast! Sad to see such an innovation like Bitcoin loosing its reputation and credibility due to few mere miscreants!
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / JPMorgan: Bitcoin's Market Structure More Resilient Than other traditional asset on: June 14, 2020, 06:34:54 AM
I know such kind of news don't really make a buzz anymore. But when it comes from company whose CEO is a known bitcoin hater, it makes room for discussions.

Bitcoin.com reported,
Quote
JPMorgan’s strategists have reportedly found bitcoin’s market structure to be more resilient than those of currencies, equities, Treasuries, and gold. In a new report on bitcoin’s stress test, JPMorgan wrote that cryptocurrencies have “longevity as an asset class.”

Changing stance of one of the largest bank in the world. What does it signifies?
5  Local / India / Shocking - With a law, India plans lasting ban on cryptos on: June 12, 2020, 06:12:48 AM
An article from Economic time on 12 June 2020 says,

Quote
India is looking to introduce a law to ban cryptocurrencies, as the government sees a legal framework as being more effective than a circular from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in this regard. “A note has been moved (by the finance ministry) for inter-ministerial consultations,” a senior government official told ET.

Quote
A high-level government panel, in July 2019, prepared a draft law providing for a ban on all forms of private cryptocurrencies. It had suggested a fine of up to Rs 25 crore and imprisonment of up to 10 years for anyone dealing in them.

Don't know how to react! This is bad and sad! India is already struggling with freedom of speech under Modi government and now it seems to include financial freedom!

6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Online casino searches at "all time high" during lockdown on: June 02, 2020, 06:56:44 AM
Quote
Search interest in online casinos has hit an all-time high in the UK since lockdown began, data show.

Google Trends shows gambling has moved online amid the closure of physical gambling venues and cancellation of sports events.

Ref: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-52633355

Well it wasn't unprecedented. Regular gamblers had to find a way to play while offline casinos are barred worldwide. Even though the overall volume has dropped, the interest about online gambling is on the ride.

I am just wondering if crypto casinos are benefiting from this! It's a great chance for crypto casinos to fetch a new customer base as well as cryptos should see new adoption. Could be a win-win situation for us!
7  Economy / Economics / India's new financial package is a national laughing stock - what do you think? on: May 25, 2020, 05:42:47 PM
India, under the leadership of Modi has recently announced a financial package to help all segments of people in the country. The approximate value of the package is 263 billion USD and people are laughing at it. Modi has again proved himself unworthy of leadership because there's no direct help offered to any segment of people. He has just made a lot of loans available for all. Let me summarize the entire scenario with a beautiful story. The author of the story is unknown.

The story:
My neighbor Alex works for a pen factory. One fine morning, he came knocking my door. After few pleasantries, he asked for monetary help as his factory is closed for last 2 months due to the COVID induced lockdown and he was not paid his salaries. So he asked for some money so that he can feed his family. After listening, I requested him to come after 2 days and promised that I will arrange something for him.

After 2 days, Alex again came knocking my door. Today I offered him a cup of coffee and after few pleasantries I told him that, I have had a discussion with the local bank manager and arranged for a loan of $100,000 for his pen factory owner. So I asked him to speak to his pen factory owner so that the owner can get the loan from the local bank to resume his production and send the manufactured pen to the market. Once the pens are sold, the owner can then pay the installments of the loan and also pay the salaries of the employees.

Alex fainted!

My conclusion: The entire package doesn't talk about any direct help for the people. It only talks about cheaper loan availability to the industries. A classic example of directionless leadership.

What do you think?
 
8  Other / Off-topic / $2500 seed capital - Need online business ideas on: May 24, 2020, 01:48:02 PM
Hi All,

So I have successfully saved $2,500 and willing to start an online business. I am looking forward for ideas which can be started with this amount. $2,500 is decent money in my country. There are certain parameters to qualify as a business idea.

My personal skill sets:
1. I am a Prince 2 certified project manager in my real life
2. I am extremely good with Wordpress. I have been making websites since 2010 and I have delivered more than 15 full size website projects for various domains. I don't do it much because I have full time day job.
3. Excellent soft skills. I have worked with various range of clients from EU and US in my day job
4. Dedication - I don't mind working for 18 hours a day if I find anything interesting.

Qualifiers:
1. Needs to be completely online
2. I am not willing to buy cheap products from China and drop-ship to other countries
3. Must not be related to crypto as cryptos don't have a clear legal status in my country
4. The business must be manageable by 1-2 people
5. The business must be manageable by only working 2-3 hours daily, not more.

Please note, I am currently exploring Print-on-demand business ideas and feasibility. So please don't suggest the same. I am open for collaborating with trusted members only.

Thanks in advance!

10  Economy / Gambling discussion / Do you know any comprehensive study about lockdown effect on online gaming? on: May 14, 2020, 07:20:09 PM
Hi fellow community members,

I am trying to do a little analysis on the matter as mention in the subject. However, I am unable to find anything (a comprehensive study with data) which can help my analysis. I expected a surge in online gaming activities due to the Covid induced lock-down the world is facing right at this moment.

The only thing I am looking for a comprehensive study about the effect of lock-down on online gaming sector. I know a lot of casino owners are pretty frequent in this part of the forum so it will be great if you guys can also share any insight on this subject.

Thanks in advance,
Avikz
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / JPM Bank changes tone and opens for crypto exchanges on: May 13, 2020, 04:36:09 PM
As Forbes reported on 12 May, JPM Chase agreed to provide banking services to Coinbase and Gemini. Apparently, this should have been a very normal incident but, when Jemie Dimon is the CEO of JMP Chase, it makes the news extra ordinary.

Puritans may think otherwise but I see it as a win for crypto community. A good one to cherish for,

15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Ransomware is back - Top tier IT company is attacked on: April 20, 2020, 03:23:21 PM
Cognizant, one of the largest tech and consulting companies in the Fortune 500, has confirmed it was hit by a ransomware attack.

Cognizant spokesperson Richard Lacroix said,

“Cognizant can confirm that a security incident involving our internal systems, and causing service disruptions for some of our clients, is the result of a Maze ransomware attack.” Our internal security teams, supplemented by leading cyber defense firms, are actively taking steps to contain this incident.”

Now they have engaged the related Law Enforcement agencies to find a remediation. Read more below,

https://techcrunch.com/2020/04/18/cognizant-maze-ransomware/

The amount of ransom is still unknown but it seems that the privacy parameter associated with the cryptocurrencies are only helping such miscreants. It's indeed sad to see crypto's involvement with such illegal incidents.

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / 5 promising blockchain projects of 2020 - an article by Bmag.io on: April 13, 2020, 03:03:28 PM
This article got delivered to my inbox today morning by Bmag.io. I usually don't look at altcoin projects but the article seems quite interesting. They have listed 5 blockchain projects that are worth taking a look,

1. Zelwin
2. Cryptwerk
3. ECOSC
4. CryptoCompare
5. Stox

While I don't vouch for these projects but I am definitely going to take a look.

What do you think about these projects? Will they be able to survive this economic situation?
17  Economy / Economics / Nobel Laureate asked India to print more money and not to worry about inflation on: April 09, 2020, 02:44:14 PM
Nobel Laureate Abhijeet Banerjee has recently asked India to print more money and transfer them to the poor class of people to increase demand in the market to tackle upcoming recession post COVID-19.

Reference: https://m.telegraphindia.com/business/abhijit-banerjee-offers-print-money-pill/cid/1763262

A lot of economists will say it is a bad idea because later it will become very difficult to arrest inflation rate. But increasing the demand is a major challenge as well.

Voice your opinion! Will be good or bad step for a diverse country like India?

19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Visa approves Coinbase as Principal Member - big step for mass adoption? on: February 20, 2020, 04:51:07 PM
Quote
The leading cryptocurrency exchange in the United States, Coinbase, has been approved as the very first “pure-play” crypto-related company to become a Visa principal member. Supposedly, this would allow the exchange to further improve its customer experience.

I know Coinbase is a centralized crypto wallet provider and bla bla but here are some facts to consider:
1. Coinbase is the first ever crypto company to manage such approval.
2. Visa manages a market cap worth $466 billion
3. Visa is the largest payment settlement provider in the world based on volume

Do you think it is a great step towards mass adoption? Will it be a positive or a negative?

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / PBOC files 84 patents towards Digital Yuan on: February 18, 2020, 07:14:02 PM
Quote
The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) has reportedly filed 84 patents relating to its plans to launch a digital currency. The patents reveal the central bank’s plans which include integrating digital currency wallets into existing retail bank accounts. The potential for the Chinese central bank digital currency to achieve scale from the get-go has put several other central banks worldwide on high alert.

It seems like China is determined to get access to its citizen's finance to get a better hold and to continue the dictatorship. Centrally controlled digital currencies will left no option for ita citizens to hide any income unreported to government.

Good or bad?
