1  Economy / Service Discussion / Is legit? on: July 13, 2020, 06:05:17 AM
A few months ago I discovered the website website isn't popular at all,despite the fact that it has been around since 2016.I've seen a few positive reviews about the website,but the lack of popularity kinda makes me hesitant to try this service.Basically is an alternative to
Has anyone here used the website to sell amazon gift cards for BTC?Has anyone been scammed by this website? I would like to know your opinions.
2  Economy / Service Discussion / Paxful customer support doesn't respond on: June 09, 2020, 11:20:44 AM
I made a Paxful account 7 months ago,but the Paxful website was kinda slow and caused my browser to crash often so I decided to delete this account.After 5 days,I decided to use Paxful,so instead of creating a brand new account,I logged into my old account.Surprisingly my old account wasn't deleted.
I had to verify my phone number,but the verification failed,because my old phone number was already in their system.
I contacted Paxful customer support and never got any reply from them.All I got is an automatic email saying "How would you rate our customer support?",which is weird,because I never got any response from customer support.
Anyone having the same problem contacting Paxful customer support?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Coinsbit CNG airdrop?Legit or no? on: May 23, 2020, 05:49:25 PM
A month ago my Youtube feed was flooded with videos about this Coinsbit CNG airdrop.
The requirements were:
1.Sign up at before May 20 2020
2.Complete KYC.
3.Join their Telegram group
If you completed the above steps you would get 30.000 CNG tokens worth 300 USD.The CNG token trading will start on June 1 AFAIK.
Anyone signed up and completed the KYC so far?
It sounds too good to be true and has a lot of negative reviews here on Bitcointalk.
I'm just curious about this airdrop.It would be nice if someone shares his experience with this airdrop.

4  Economy / Scam Accusations / "G2A refund" BTC scam.Beware. on: April 10, 2020, 06:43:44 AM
There's a new scam that I discovered recently.
Here are the details:
The victim gets tricked into installing a Tampermonkey script in his Chrome browser and using that script to purchase game keys or gift cards on G2A using Bitcoin.The victim is manipulated to believe that the script will change the timezone of the checkout page and make the payment session to expire,therefore Bitpay(the BTC payment processor of G2A) will refund automatically all transactions above 0.005 BTC,while G2A will complete the order and deliver the game keys/gift cards.

Hence,you get games and gift cards FOR FREE! Right? WRONG!

In reality,the Tampermonkey script changes the Bitpay wallet address on the G2A checkout page with the BTC address of the creator of that script(the scammer).The victim sends BTC to the scammers address and expect an automatic refund from G2A,but such refund never happens and the BTC are gone...

I don't want to post links here,but you can search Youtube for "G2A refund" and there are a bunch of videos about this "exploit". Usually the videos have more likes than dislikes and lots of fake sounding bot comments,about the script "working perfectly".

The Tampermonkey scam script has several names- "G2A refund glitch","timezone exploit","G2A exploit".

I don't use G2A and I don't care about this shady gaming marketplace.
If you ever want to buy something from G2A,just don't trust the "get everything on G2A for free" videos and methods that are shared across the internet.

5  Other / Meta / Widget with current crypto prices embedded in the forum? on: January 07, 2020, 08:09:32 AM
Have you ever visited a forum like
They have a widget on the right side of the page,showing the current BTC,ETH and Ripple prices,which are constantly updated.
Maybe it would be nice if we have such widget on top of the forum page.
Nevermind,it's just a suggestion.
6  Other / Off-topic / Anyone with social anxiety issues? on: December 28, 2019, 07:18:53 AM
My social anxiety kicked in.
I just hate talking with people in person and I hate the feeling of stress and pressure.
I know I have a problem and I don't have money to get professional help from a psychic doctor.
Anyone here,who faced this problem before?

By the way,I don't know where to post this.Maybe it belongs to the Meta forum,but I will post it in the bitcoin discussion forum.I'm going to be busy around the holidays so I'm posting this "masterpiece" now.
Damn it.It looks kinda mediocre.I'm not an artist.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin taxation infographic.Any suggestions to improve? on: December 16, 2019, 12:37:52 PM
All credit goes to the author of the infographic,but I'm looking for suggestions how all this information can be updated/improved.Is there something missing in the info?
9  Other / Meta / Readdit Karma whores=Bitcointalk merit whores :) on: December 12, 2019, 01:01:53 PM
 A karma whore is a Reddit user,who deliberately uses Reddit to boost his karma score by applying different tricks(re-posting old content for the sake of gaining more karma,etc)
Some members of Bitcointalk have a similar approach towards Merit.
Can we create a list of all "Merit whores" on Bitcointalk?
You can submit your suggestions below.
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Have you ever purchased bitcoins using eBay? on: November 25, 2019, 08:08:16 AM
I was browsing eBay and I see many sellers,who are selling bitcoin and altcoins.
I thought that eBay isn't crypto friendly,but the sellers,who are selling 24-hour btc mining contracts.
The fees are ridiculous.To buy 9USD worth of BTC,you have to pay 14USD via paypal.
It's weird that those people actually have sales.
11  Economy / Economics / Your favorite Youtube channels about finance and economics? on: September 26, 2019, 11:42:58 AM
My favorite youtube channels about finance and economics are:
1.Graham Stephan-Real estate,financial advise,saving,making money(nothing about crypto).
2.Economy Explained-It's more about macroeconomics and why some countries are wealthier than others.

Which ones are your favorite Youtube channels about economics and finance?
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Do you remember Graft(GRFT)? on: June 01, 2019, 12:22:07 PM
Does anyone here remember the GRAFT project that was active around 2017-2018?
I had around 11280 GRFT coins,but I sold them for 200 USD on March 2018.
Now,it looks like Graft is just a dead altcoin.Can we do something to bring it back to life?
I don't mean just pump&dump.Graft looked like a promising project,but it went down...
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Compilation:The most stupid questions about Satoshi... on: May 28, 2019, 12:22:29 PM
I am sick and tired of the amount of stupid questions regarding Satoshi Nakamoto that gets posted on the forum everyday.This nonsense just keeps going on and on:
"What would Satoshi think about this?,What would Satoshi think about that?"Is Satoshi a gay?"Is Satoshi a woman?""Is Satoshi  the NSA?"...
STFU people!We can't answer these questions because we are NOT the one and only Satoshi Nakamoto and we can't look inside his mind.

Can you add your mindless question to the list? Grin
14  Other / Off-topic / My facebook account got locked on: May 28, 2019, 12:01:20 PM
Today,I've got an email from Facebook,saying that someone was trying to login into my account and therefore my Facebook account will remain locked until I verify my identity.
I tried to verify my identity via text message and via the option to login from another device,but nothing happens.I guess my Facebook is lost...
Anyone having the same issue?
15  Other / Off-topic / What's the best purpose for a VPS? on: May 21, 2019, 05:10:58 PM
I've signed up for the AWS free tier and I have one VPS.
I wonder what should be the best purpose for that VPS.
Install GSA search engine ranker and build backlinks to my website or video 24/7?
Run some bot?
Livestream some video on Youtube/Facebook using Openbroadcaster  software?
Run Linkedhelper on Linkedin?
Run Hitleap/YTmonster and sell web traffic/views/likes?
16  Economy / Economics / Is the US dollar backed by oil?What do you think? on: March 20, 2019, 12:43:26 PM
I kinda like this guy and his Youtube content,but he is anti-bitcoin and he has some solid arguments.

The first video is about the bitcoin bubble and the second video is explaining the petrodollar and the US/Saudi Arabia relationships.The petrodollar conspiracy theory sounds pretty good to me.

What do you think?
17  Economy / Speculation / What do you think about this plan? on: December 06, 2018, 07:48:21 AM
Imagine having one bitcoin.
You sell that bitcoin at the current price(around 3800 USD).
Bitcoin crashes again somewhere around Christmass and the price goes down to 1K USD.
You buy 3.8 bitcoins with the dollars you got from the previous sale and you HODL.
In 2019-2020 bitcoin recovers to 10K USD (or maybe reaches 20K ATH).
You have made atleast 38K USD. Grin
I know it's not guaranteed to happen,but hey,this is the Speculation forum,so why not speculate about this.
I think that this is every crypto whale's trading plan for the next 2 years.
18  Economy / Speculation / Satis Group-Bitcoin might reach 96K by 2023 on: September 08, 2018, 05:55:26 AM
According to Satis Group(google it,if you don't know anything about them) Bitcoin price will reach 96K USD by the end of 2023 and 144K USD by the end of the next decade(around 2030).The second most valuable coin will be Monero with a 18K USD price.Coins like ethereum and litecoin are doomed to fail in the long run,according to the market analysts.
Well,I don't trust such predictions,but this is the speculation sub-forum and we always discuss those type of "market analysis" here.Any thoughts about this?
19  Economy / Economics / Some facts about the global debt... on: June 25, 2018, 06:37:29 AM
Do you know that the global debt is around 230 trillion USD?
This is around 325% of the global GDP.
Countries like Japan have estimated debt of around 250% of their GDP.
China`s corporate debt is around 150% of China`s GDP.More than 50% of that debt is created by the govenment owned corporations.

Every idiot,who calls bitcoin a bubble should look at these stats.
The global debt bubble is 10000 times bigger than the crypto or bitcoin bubble.
The cryptocurrency prices are pumped by this bubble.This bubble will create the new Great Depression.
20  Economy / Speculation / Crypto market=online casino on: June 01, 2018, 05:47:09 AM
Do you think the global cryptocurrency market is just like one giant worldwide online casino?
I have that feeling,when I trade on some crypto exchange platform.It`s like you are just "betting" on altcoin,token or BTC and hopping for the price to skyrocket.There`s no real investing involved,your money won`t create new jobs and lower the unemployment rate.The money goes from one trader to another.It`s a zero sum game.This is not a "win-win" situation.The sad thing is that Wall Street is the same type of "casino".
This makes the think that cryptocurrencies won`t change the world.
Nothing can change the "casino capitalism".
