1  Local / العربية (Arabic) / احذر أخي المسلم on: March 10, 2019, 11:00:01 AM
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته،
عن تميم الداري أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: الدين النصيحة، قلنا: لمن؟ قال لله ولرسوله ولأئمة المسلمين وعامتهم. رواه مسلم.
ومن منطلق الأخوة في الإسلام والحرص على ألا يقع أخي المسلم في الحرام؛ ربما لجهل منه أو إخفاق منا نحن المسلمين في توعيته، أردت أن أنبه عن العديد من المحرمات التي من الممكن أن نقع فيها جراء سعينا المتواصل تجاه الربح، وبخاصة الربح السريع:

•   تجارة الخيارات الثنائية: منذ عدة أيام قابلت شاباً حديث السن وتحدثنا سوياً عن أشياء عديدة مختلفة حتى وصلنا إلى العملات الإلكترونية، فأخبرني بمعرفته ومدى اهتمامه بها، وأخبرني أنه يتاجر بها لكي يصبح غنياً في يوم من الأيام ويسافر للخارج، ثم ما لبس أن أخبرني بأنه يقوم بالمتاجرة عن طريق الخيارات الثنائية وكم هي مربحة للغاية لكنها خطرة. ولمعرفتي بها سابقاً، حاولت أن أنصحه بالابتعاد عنها لأنها حرام؛ لكنه أبى النصيحة، وهو من ألهمني بكتابة هذا المنشور.
ما هي تجارة الخيارات الثنائية؟
هي نوع من أنواع التجارة الإلكترونية تقوم على اختيار عملة من العملات (سواء تقليدية أو إلكترونية) ثم تتوقع أين سيذهب سعر العملة: لأعلى أم لأسفل (لذلك سميت بالثنائية لأنه ليس لديك إلا خياران فقط)، ثم تحدد توقعك بفترة زمنية معينة. إذا كان توقعك صحيحاً تحصل على 170% من الأرباح وإذا كان خاطئاً تخسر 90% من رأس مالك (تختلف هذه النسب باختلاف المنصة والفترة الزمنية التي يتم التعاقد عليها).
لماذا هي محرمة شرعاً؟
لأنها من العقود الغرر المنهي عنها شرعاً فهي تقوم على أساس المقامرة كما هو بين، وليس فيها تقابض شرعي؛ فالمتعاقد عليه ليس مالاً أو منفعة أو حقاً مالياً يجوز العوض، وتشترط مثل هذه العقود على خسارة أحد طرفي التعاقد لامحالة. العجيب في الأمر أني قرأت مقالاً غربياً عن تعريف هذه التجارة، ختمه المؤلف بقوله أن هذه الخيارات الثنائية ما هي إلا قمار متنكر في صورة متاجرة، وهي أيضاً أحد الأسباب الأربعة التي جعلت الاقتصادي الفرنسي الحائز على جائزة نوبل موريس آليه يقول أن وال ستريت أصبح حقيقة صالة قمار ضخمة (وهذه كافية).

•   تجارة الهامش:
ماهي تجارة الهامش (أو المارجن بالإنجليزية)؟
هي نوع من أنواع التجارة الإلكترونية يقوم فيها العميل بوضع رأس مال صغير (يسمى هامش) ثم تقوم جهة مصرفية معينة بتمويل الجزء الرئيسي من رأس المال المُستَثمر كقرض (حقيقي أو وهمي) لإيفاء العقد بشرط أن يقوم العميل بالمتاجرة من خلالها. تختلف قيمة هذا القرض باختلاف الرافعة المالية المستخدمة، والتي تبدأ من 1 إلى 100 ضعف المبلغ المودع في حساب الشركة أو الجهة المصرفية. تستفيد الجهة المقرضة من خلال فائدة التبييت (وهي فائدة تفرض على مبلغ القرض الذي تقدمه الجهة المصرفية إذا لم يتم غلق الصفقة في نفس يوم التداول)، والعمولات التي تأخذها مقابل توفير خدمات التداول، وفارق السعر بين البيع والشراء (أو ما يعرف بالإسبريد).
لماذا هي محرمة شرعاً؟
لأنها تشتمل على ربا فاحش في موضعين:
- اشتراط العقد على أن تكون المتاجرة من خلال منصة التداول الخاصة بالجهة المقرضة، وفي هذا استفادة لها حيث أنها تنتفع بالعمولات التي تأخذها على كل صفقة بالإضافة إلى ما تفعله معظم الشركات والجهات المصرفية من تحايل على فروق السعر بين البيع والشراء لتجني ربحاً من وراء ذلك، وكل قرض جر منفعة فهو ربا، كما قال الرسول  صلى الله عليه وسلم: لا يحل سلف وبيع. رواه أبو داود والترمذي.
- ما يسمى بفائدة التبييت، و هي زيادة تفرض على قرض مؤجل بفترة زمنية محددة فإذا عجز المدين عن سداد الدين بعد هذه الفترة تزيد قيمة القرض بهذه الفائدة وهذا هو عين الربا.

•   تجارة العقود المستقبلية أو الآجلة (منصة BitMex):
ما هي تجارة العقود المستقبلية (أو ما يعرف في الإنجليزية بالفيوتشرز)؟
هي اتفاق طرفين على شراء أو بيع سهم أو عملة أو أصل بسعر محدد يتم دفعه بعد فترة معينة في المستقبل يُشترط عليه عند التعاقد.
لماذا هي محرمة شرعاً؟
لأنها تقوم على بيع دين بدين، وبيع الإنسان ما لا يملك فهي تدخل في باب ربا النسيئة (وهو أن يباع شيء بشيء على أن يتم التقابض في المستقبل وهذا لا يجوز شرعاً). وحقيقة مثل هذه العقود أنها مراهنة على فروق الأسعار بين الأًصول أو العملات وهذا نوع من أنواع القمار. كما أن منصة متخصصة في هذه العقود كمنصة بيتميكس تخلط بين هذه العقود وبين تجارة الهامش المذكورة أعلاه، لذلك فإن أغلب (بل كل) التعاملات عليها تكون محرمة.


•   الاستثمار في شركات ومشروعات تتعامل بما هو محرم: لا يجوز للمسلم أن يضع ماله في شركات/عملات إلكترونية تهدف إلى محرم أو تتعامل بالحرام كالمنصات التي تقوم على ما سبق ذكره أومنصات الرهان والقمار أو منصات تدعو إلى الإباحية والرذيلة فكل ذلك يكون إعانة للإثم والإفساد في الأرض، قال الله تعالى: << وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَىٰ ۖ وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ >>. واعلم أن ما تجنيه من ورائها من مال فهو حرام لأنه آت من تعاملات أصلها محرم.

•   الاشتراك في حملات مكافآت لمشاريع هدفها حرام: كسابقتها؛ لا يجوز للمسلم أن يروج أو يترجم أو يكتب تعليقاً أو ينشر مقالاً أو فيديو مصور يساهم في انتشار مثل هذه المنصات والمشاريع وتعريف الناس بها لأنه إعانة للإثم والعدوان. قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: إن العبد ليتكلم بالكلمة من سخط الله لا يلقي لها بالاً يهوي بها في جهنم سبعين خريفاً. فالحذر الحذر.

•   المقامرة بالعملات الإلكترونية ولو على سبيل المزاح والمتعة: للأسف كثير منا من يقع في هذا وهو غير مدرك للأمر ولا يعلم عواقبه، وما أسهل أن تقع فيه الآن خاصة مواقع القمار التي تعطي لك جزءً قليلاً من البيتكوين لكي تسهل عليك الأمر ألا تدفع مالاً من جيبك ولكن سرعان ما يتحول الأمر إلى إدمان وتخسر مالك ونفسك ولك في قسم المقامرة على هذا المنتدى قصص وعبر. وهناك من يخدع نفسه بأنها مجرد لعبة وأنه لا يلعبها من أجل الربح السريع وإنما للتسلية فاعلم أنك ترتكب كبيرة من الكبائر تستهون عليك وهي عند الله عظيمة. قال الله تعالى: << ذَلِكَ وَمَنْ يُعَظِّمْ حُرُمَاتِ اللَّهِ فَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَهُ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِ >>. و قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: إياكم ومحقرات الذنوب فإنهن يجتمعن على الرجل حتى يهلكنه كرجل كان بأرض فلاة فحضر صنيع القوم فجعل الرجل يجيء بالعود والرجل يجيء بالعود حتى جمعوا من ذلك سوادا وأججوا نارا فأنضجوا ما فيها.
فحاول أن تبتعد عنها وأن تتقي شبهاتها فإنه لا يأتيك منها خير أبداً.

•   الاقتراض والتسليف: كما تعرف، فإن معظم مستخدمي هذا المنتدى من الأجانب وغالباً ما يشترطون فائدة على القرض وهذا ربا. عن جابر بن عبد الله - رضي الله عنهما - قال: لعن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم آكل الربا، ومؤكله، وكاتبه، وشاهديه. فحاول أن تجتنب الاقتراض ما استطعت، وإن كنت لا محالة مقترضاً فتحرى الاقتراض من مسلم أو اجعل عدم وجود فائدة شرطاً للاقتراض. كذلك إذا كنت ميسوراً وأراد أحداً أن يقترض فاقرضه دون فائدة (مع أخذ الحيطة من النصابين فهم كثر)، فإن الهدف من الإقراض هو مساعدة أخاك المسلم لا الاستفادة منه، ومن نَفّس عن مؤمن كربة من كرب الدنيا نَفَّس الله عنه كربة من كرب يوم القيامة كما جاء في الحديث الشريف.

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: الحلال بين والحرام بين، وبينهما مشتبهات لا يعلمهن كثير من الناس، فمن اتقى الشبهات فقد استبرأ لدينه وعرضه، ومن وقع في الشبهات وقع في الحرام، كالراعي يرعى حول الحمى يوشك أن يقع فيه، ألا وإن لكل ملك حمى، ألا وإن حمى الله محارمه، ألا وإن في الجسد مضغة إذا صلحت صلح الجسد كله، وإذا فسدت فسد الجسد كله، ألا وهي القلب.
أنصحك وأنصح نفسي بالحذر من الوقوع في الحرام خاصة في وقتنا هذا الذي تُسمى فيه الأشياء بغير مسمياتها لتُلبس على الناس دينهم. واعلم بأنه ما تُركَ شيئاً لله إلا عوضه الله خيراً منه. أسأل الله أن ينفع بهذا المنشور أحد من المسلمين وأن يكون حجة لنا لا علينا وأن يوفقنا لما فيه الخير ويرضاه وأن يجنبنا الذنوب والمعاصي والآثام. اللهم هل بلغت، اللهم فاشهد.

3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / We need to change on: August 21, 2018, 12:35:10 PM
I have only gained good things from cryptocurrencies (they have changed my life for the better), however, I am frustrated at those who are in for money, and only money. They hurt themselves as well as cryptocurrencies future. I am sad that I still can't use bitcoin to purchase the things I want, as it isn't used as a payment currency/method. I am sad that there are big financial institutions that want (and do their best) to wipe the crypto world out, and instead of working together as a crypto-community to thrive, we are fighting, arguing, and scamming each other. Where I live, the government relentlessly tightens and destroys our financial lives—I was lucky to have found salvation in cryptocurrencies when others struggled.

We need to show the world that we are not just a bunch of wanna-be millionaires, that we actually care.

6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Just one damned question on: June 14, 2017, 06:58:32 PM
Why the heck do people pay low fees for their transactions, then after waiting a long time, they come here, and start crying about it all over the place. They, then, are ready to do the impossible; they are ready to pay more than $100 to get their transaction confirmed. Simple question: why don't you just pay the damned normal fees of 0.002BTC, so you don't cry later (either about being unconfirmed or being stuck with a double spend)?!

P.S.: I know there are people who are forced to pay such low fees due to withdrawing from an exchange (or just any bitcoin service site). I also know that Blockchain.info fees estimation tool is responsible for the fees being fucked up.
7  Economy / Speculation / What we are experiencing right now is the norm on: June 01, 2017, 08:14:01 PM
Usually, at this time of year, we experience a quiet time (of summer). I was checking Bitcoin price charts and I have noticed that Bitcoin price calms down (nearly stable, just the normal fluctuations) before the end of may, and starts rising again in the mid of June, and dumps again in the mid of July, stays calm for a while, then start rising again at the beginning of September.

So I think buying Bitcoin at the best price would be either now or in July.
8  Economy / Services / ▬▬►Offering English – Arabic translation service◄▬▬ on: May 26, 2017, 03:44:04 PM
I am offering my service to translate anything from English into Arabic and vice versa — anything crypto-related or not.

My rates: not actually going to set this, as I am accepting any offer no matter what the payment is – I am fishing for the translation itself rather than the compensation (I don't have a fixed, specific rate).

My Translation focus: anything you want translated, I can translate it for you in a high quality manner, and short time.

If you are interested in this service, don't hesitate to hit me with a PM.

P.S.: I know that I would barely get any interest (if any), and I also know the lack of Arabic influence on pretty much everything other than Oil, especially their absence from the crypto world. I am just making this to see if it works, anyway.
9  Economy / Speculation / Is a correction happening? on: May 25, 2017, 05:41:12 PM
So I woke up today to find the price jumping to $2,680 (Bitfinex price), I knew that was insane rise, but right now there is a little dip, Is it a correction? Does this mean that Bitcoin is going to stay above $2,000, and what we are experiencing now is not a bubble?

10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / I think we are greedy on: May 21, 2017, 01:21:44 AM
I have been trying to deposit/withdraw fiat into different exchanges, and I found that most fees are absolutely ridiculous (7%-10%?!). With many options to deposit/withdraw fiat (and different fees), I think we are getting a bit greedy with Bitcoin.

According to Bitcoin price at the moment, depositing fiat worth of 1BTC ($2,053) requires fees ranging between $21-$205, while most of us want to transact that same 1BTC with something like $0.5 and getting rage over the delay!

I think paying $1-$5 in fees is relatively acceptable, since bitcoin price is rising every single day.
11  Economy / Service Discussion / A service for altcoins on: May 09, 2017, 10:00:20 PM
Is there any website, software, or service that shows the prices of altcoins on multiple exchanges? No need for it to be live or to include all altcoins (Top 50-100 would be OK) – I just want to know which exchange sells a specific coin for higher price. Even if it was paid.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / A question on: May 08, 2017, 11:00:38 AM
Why after almost 4 years has Dogecoin pumped reasonably hard? I mean in the past four years, its price was always around 18-22 satoshis, but in this year specifically, it has pumped up to 83-86 satoshis, which is 300% profit for holders. What is the reason behind that pump? And why now?
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / So do you still support BU? on: April 09, 2017, 01:19:51 PM
After the Bitmain's ASICBOOST exploit that Jihan Wu used to get an additional 30% (more or less) efficiency for his mining hardware, and the real reason behind Bitmain's attempts to block implementing SegWit has been exposed, do you still support BU after all? If so, why?  
14  Other / Beginners & Help / Weird bitcoin address showing up! on: March 31, 2017, 01:21:57 AM
I have a weird problem that happened to me 4 times so far (and it still continues to happen) – every time I try to copy–paste my bitcoin address, either from the forum, or onto, I end up getting another address, which has the same 3 initial characters that my bitcoin address has. The weird about this is that it didn't happen until I started using Coinbase online wallet, and it happens only on this forum. (I used to copy–paste my desktop wallet address without any problem.)

So does anyone have a rational explanation for this, if not a solution?  
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Can someone explain this? on: March 31, 2017, 12:59:03 AM
I want to know the damned explanations for both of Segregated Witness (SegWit) and Bitcoin Unlimited (BU).
I need someone to enlighten me with the technical (heavy, if possible) details about both of them.

P.S. I cannot find anything about them that satisfies my mind technically on the Internet, just general definitions...
16  Other / Off-topic / English writing mistakes you might be doing! on: March 26, 2017, 12:31:09 AM
I have been seeing a lot of members writing inappropriate English during my experience in Bitcointalk community (and other forums). Unfortunately, some of those members are even Hero or Legendary members. Mostly, I tend to read more than posting, so I wanted to make this topic to help raising posting quality. You can’t say you are a top quality poster, if you make one of these mistakes. I will do my best in order to make this topic plain simple for everyone to understand.

I will be talking about spelling mistakes only in this topic, and I will try to update it as soon as I could. I won't touch grammar because grammar is... well... more complicated.

Note: Please, please, please, check the full thread. Maybe you are making a mistake and you don't know - we all do. I know it's long and boring, and you just want to post to raise your signature posting count, but this will help you in the long run.

List of most commonly used and misunderstood mistakes:
(The mistakes are in an alphabetical order.)

1. 'a' and 'an': There is a massive confusion between these two - when do I put 'a', and when do I put 'an'?!
We were always taught that 'a' precedes a word starting with a consonant letter, and 'an' precedes a word starting with a vowel letter (a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes y). Now, can you put 'a' or 'an' professionally? Of course not.
The most important thing they don't tell us is that pronunciation is the secret ingredient to the recipe. If you want to correctly write 'a' or 'an' before a word, you have to pronounce/enunciate it. The sound of the first letter of a word will determine whether to put 'a' or 'an'. Let me explain by examples:

  • A word like 'hour' begins with a consonant letter 'h', but when you pronounce it, 'h' is silent, you'll have the sound of a vowel letter 'o', hence: an hour;
  • A word like 'university' begins with a vowel letter 'u', but when you pronounce it, you would have the sound of 'y', hence: a university;
  • A word like 'one' begins with a vowel letter 'o', but when you pronounce it, you would have the sound of 'w', hence: a one-time offer;
  • There are words which you can put 'a' or 'an' depending on your pronunciation ('a' U.S. vs. 'an' U.K.): Hotel, Historic, Horrific, Habitual, Herb, etc;
  • Lastly, Acronyms: Which one to use 'a' or 'an'? An acronym like FPS – which is used in the gaming industry as a genre (First Person Shooter), or as a unit to measure a display device performance – is written as "a FPS," which is incorrect. When you pronounce 'FPS', the initial letter is 'F', its sound is 'ef' (vowel sound), hence: an FPS, an SPA, a UFO, a BB gun, an LSK coin, and so on.
 

2. 'allmost': Mistaken for 'almost', just like 'allways' is mistaken for 'always'. (Remember, it's only one 'l', not two.)

3. 'alot' and 'a lot': 'alot' is a very commonly used mistake, which, in fact, doesn't even belong to English. The correct word is 'a lot', and it's two words, just like 'a little', 'a bunch', 'a few', and 'a ton'.
Example(s):
  • Incorrect: Alot of people are doing this. Correct: A lot of people are doing this.
  • Incorrect: This is happening alot. Correct: This is happening a lot.

4. 'advice', and 'advise': People are mistaking one for the other. 'Advice' is a noun meaning a suggestion, a guidance, or an offered recommendation about what someone should do. 'Advise' is the present verb of 'advice', which means giving/offering a suggestion or a guidance to someone.
Example(s):
  • Incorrect: You should give me an advise. Correct: You should give me an advice.
  • Incorrect: The doctor adviced me to rest for a few days. Correct: The doctor advised me to rest for a few days.
 

5. 'ammount': Mistaken for 'amount'. (Remember, it's just one 'm'.)

6. 'another' and 'other': 'Another' is used before (singular) countable nouns, 'other' is used before (plural) uncountable nouns.
Example(s):
  • Would you like another cup of coffee? Why do you want to make another shitcoin? In another 20 years, bitcoin will reach the sky!
  • I have invited other people. I am currently busy with other things. Others don't understand this.
'Another' is one word, not two ('an other' is definitely NOT English).

7. 'atleast': Again, a common mistake just like 'alot'. The correct one is 'at least', and it consists of two words.

8. 'begining': Mistaken for 'beginning' (remember, two 'n').
Example: Incorrect: At the begining. Correct: At the beginning.
 
9. 'carefull', 'usefull' and the like: Are usually mistaken for -ful adjectives, The correct words are ending in 'ful' with a single 'l', not 'full'.
Example(s): Incorrect: Be carefull, Do something usefull. Correct: Be careful, Do something useful.

10. 'changable': Is mistaken for 'changeable'. Unlike 'achieveable', which is mistaken for 'achievable'.

11. 'comitted' or 'commited': Mistaken for 'committed'. (Misspelled due to its present verb 'commit', and its noun 'commitment'.)

12. 'concensus': A widespread mistake on the internet. The correct word is 'consensus', which means a general agreement.

13. 'disasterous': Mistaken for 'disastrous' because of its form (disaster–ous).

14. 'dissapear': Mistaken for 'disappear'. (Only one 's', and two 'p'.)

15. 'excede': Mistaken for 'exceed'. (Misspelled due to its pronunciation.)

16. 'exilerate': Mistaken for 'exhilarate'. (Misspelled due to its pronunciation.)

17. 'existance' and 'experiance': Most people are mistaking these words because of their pronunciation (especially if you hear them in American English). The correct ones are 'existence' and 'experience'.  

18. 'facinating': Mistaken for 'fascinating'. (Remember, 's' before 'c'.)

19. 'fullfil', 'fullfill', and the like: Again, a very mistaken word, people think it consists of (full-fill). The correct one is 'fulfill' (U.S. English) or 'fulfil' (U.K. English).

20. 'gaurantee' or 'gurantee': Mistaken for 'guarantee'. (Remember, 'u' before 'a'.)

21. 'heirarchy': Mistaken for 'hierarchy'. (It follows the 'i before e except after c' spelling rule, which doesn't apply all the time)

22. 'i': The most vastly used mistake. This is simply the lowercase letter 'i', and it means nothing else other than that. While most of Non-English people are using it as the pronoun referring to 'me' or 'myself', the correct one is 'I'.
Example: Incorrect: i think i should go. Correct: I think I should go.

23. 'immitate': Mistaken for 'imitate'.

24. 'independant': Mistaken for 'independent' (misspelled due to American English, but in U.K. English it's accepted as a noun).

25. 'inteligence' or 'intelligance': Mistaken for 'intelligence'.

26. 'intelecutal' or 'intelectual': Mistaken for 'intellectual'.

27. 'its' and 'it's': I am not talking about people who are too lazy to put an apostrophe, I am talking about people who unintentionally mistake one for the other. 'its' is the possessive of the pronoun 'it', while 'it's' is a contraction of 'it is' or 'it has'. If you aren't sure which one to use, simply put 'it is' or 'it has' instead of 'it's'.
Example(s):
  • Incorrect: It's true that its annoying. Correct: It's true that it's (it is) annoying.
  • Incorrect: Its known that Bitcoin is an open source, it's whitepaper is available for anyone to read. Correct: It's known that Bitcoin is an open source, its whitepaper is available for anyone to read.


28. 'kernal': Mistaken for 'kernel'.

29. 'lisense': Mistaken for 'license' (U.S. English, and U.K. verb) or 'licence' (U.K. English noun).
 
30. 'lose', 'lost', 'loss' and 'loose': People are confused which one is correct. 'Lose' is a verb, which means being unable to find or keep something, 'lost' is the past form of the verb, and 'loss' is the noun, while 'loose' can be a verb, an adjective, and a noun - it has nothing to do with 'lose'.
Example(s):
  • Incorrect: When someone wins in gambling, others loose. Correct: When someone wins in gambling, others lose.
  • Incorrect: They set the lion lose. Correct: They set the lion loose.
  • Incorrect: One lose hurts us all. Correct: One loss hurts us all.
               
31. 'maintainance': A mistake that one sees every single day on forums, websites, games, etc. The correct word is 'maintenance', which means the process of maintaining or preserving a condition or a situation (which I think the reason for the misspelling).

32. 'millenium': Mistaken for 'millennium'.

33. 'miniscule': Mistaken for 'minuscule', which means extremely small.

34. 'mispell': Mistaken for 'misspell'. (Ironic, isn't it? Misspelling 'misspell'.)

35. 'neccessary': Mistaken for 'necessary'. (One 'c', two 's'.)

36. 'not to' and 'to not': A massive argument about which one comes first is issued every now and then. Personally, I prefer the first one, as it makes a comforting tone to my ears (and to any native speaker's). But last year, a few well-known newspapers (like NYT) have published articles that include 'to not', and American Dictionaries state that both are correct. But still, English teachers prefer 'not to', and they wish "not to" see 'to not' in any formal document.
 
37. 'noticable': Mistaken for 'noticeable'.

38. 'occassion': Mistaken for 'occasion'.

39. 'occurance', 'occurence' or 'occurrance': Mistaken for 'occurrence'. (-ance and -ence misspelling.)

40. 'orignal': Mistaken for 'original'.

41. 'outragous': Mistaken for 'outrageous'.

42. 'personel': Mistaken for 'personnel'.

43. 'posession' or 'possesion': Mistaken for 'possession'.

44. 'principal' and 'principle': 'Principal' is a noun and adjective referring to someone in a high rank or a position of authority. 'Principle' is only a noun that refers to a natural, moral, legal rule or standard.

45. 'privelge' or 'privelege': Mistaken for 'privilege'.

46. 'promiss': Mistaken for 'promise'.

47. 'publicly' and 'publically': Although some dictionaries recognize both as correct, 'publicly' is far more common than 'publically'. 'Publicly' is considered the only adverb ending in "-icly" formed from an adjective that ends in "-ic."

48. 'readible': Mistaken for 'readable'.

49. 'realy': Mistaken for 'really'.

50. 'refered' or 'reffered': Mistaken for 'referred'.

51. 'referance': Mistaken for 'reference'. (-ance and -ence misspelling.)

52. 'religous': Mistaken for 'religious'. (Formed from the noun religion.)

53. 'speach': Mistaken for 'speech'.

54. 'sucessful' or 'succesfull': Mistaken for 'successful'. (The noun is success.)

55. 'suprise': Mistaken for 'surprise'. (People mistake it because of the American pronunciation.)

56. 'than' and 'then': Another very misunderstood mistake. Most people (even English people known to myself) are confused with the usage of these two words. to be simply put, 'then' always refers to a sense of time (i.e., what is going to happen next), while 'than' is always used in comparisons between two things.
Example(s):
  • Incorrect: I am better then before. Correct: I am better than before.
  • Incorrect: Do your homework first than you can play. Correct: Do your homework first then you can play.
  • Incorrect: It's more then enough. Correct: It's more than enough.

57. 'their', 'there' and 'they're': To be simple enough about this, 'their' is the possessive of the pronoun 'they', 'they're' is the contraction of 'they are', and 'there' mostly indicates to/in/at a place.
Example(s):
  • Incorrect: There doing this now. Correct: They're (they are) doing this now.
  • Incorrect: What were you doing their? Correct: What were you doing there?
  • Incorrect: They're a lot of people using bitcoin nowadays. Correct: There are a lot of people using bitcoin nowadays.


58. 'themself': Mistaken for 'themselves', just like 'ourselves' and 'yourselves' (plural).

59. 'to' and 'too': Although the famous meme that we have here "it's too good to be true" makes it clear enough, people still mistake one for the other. 'To' is a preposition that means toward, reaching as far as, and until. 'Too' is an adverb that means additionally, very, extremely, or as well. If you have a doubt about which one to use, put any of "too synonyms" and see if it fits.
Example(s):
  • Incorrect: The devs are to afraid to try. Correct: The devs are too afraid to try.
  • Incorrect: I agree with you to. Correct: I agree with you, too.
  • Incorrect: Higher fees are to annoying. Correct: Higher fees are too annoying.
  • Incorrect: It's taking to long. Correct: It's taking too long.

60. 'tomorow', 'tommorow' or 'tommorrow': Mistaken for 'tomorrow'. (Just one 'm', two 'r'.)

61. 'treshold': Mistaken for 'threshold'. (The 'thre' in 'threshold' is pronounced like three, not tree.)

62. 'tyrany' or 'tyrent': Mistaken for 'tyranny' and 'tyrant'.

63. 'underate': Mistaken for 'underrate'. (Formed from 'under-rate'.)

64. 'untill': Another very common mistake that they even write it as 'till (abbreviated). The correct ones are 'until', 'till', or ''til'.

65. 'vise versa': Although it's a matter of debate, 'vice versa' is the correct one.

66. 'wellfare' or 'welfear': Mistaken for 'welfare'. (People think it's formed from 'well-fare'.)

67. 'wether': Very mistaken for 'whether'. (Again, pronunciation is the common culprit.)

68. 'wierd': Mistaken for 'weird'. (One of many exceptions to the 'i before e except after c' spelling rule.)
 
69. 'withold': Mistaken for 'withhold'. (Yes, don't look at it like that Roll Eyes Huh, it's two 'h'.)

70. 'writting': Mistaken for 'writing' (not like written).

71. 'your' and 'you're': A very common mistake made by English and Non-English people alike. 'Your' is the possessive of the pronoun 'you', and it's usually followed by a noun or gerund. 'You're' is the contraction of 'you are'. Simply if you aren't sure which one is correct, put 'you are' in its place, and see if the sentence still makes sense. (American pronunciation has a role in this confusion.)
Mistakes like hope your (you're) okay, or your (you're) welcome are used everyday, and they should be corrected.
17  Other / Off-topic / Does anyone have a cure for gaming addiction?! on: March 15, 2017, 01:16:59 AM
As the title says, I am currently looking for a cure for my gaming addiction. I cannot simply lift my hands off my mouse and keyboard. I even ignore some of my college's days and continue playing, and even when I am at college, I keep thinking about what I am going to do when I get home and continue my games. I stay awake for more than 3 days just playing.

I am looking for a cure because this is getting out of control. I won't graduate from college and have a life, if I keep acting like that. Skyrim or LoL won't help me in real life, lol.
18  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / I can't see the full picture here! on: November 30, 2016, 02:14:58 PM
I'm new to the world of Bitcoin mining and I have never mined before (neither using GPU/CPU nor using a mining hardware). So, here is my humble (if not stupid) question, why do miners (ordinary people, like you and me) mine bitcoin? (please, don't tell me, you are doing it for fun). I can't see the profits here (if I'm blind, don't hesitate to inform me).

Here is a simple example of what I don't understand about mining:

The most powerful and efficient SHA-256 mining hardware out there is the Antminer 2016 S9 @0.10W/GH 14TH/s which consumes 1375 watts at a price of nearly $2300 on Amazon.com. The approximately BTC earned is 0.5BTC/Month, excluding electricity, mining pool fees, contracts costs, cooling costs and hardware expenses. But I have searched a little and found that 14TH/S is just advertised and the real hash rate is 12.93TH/s±7%, also, found that all 12.93TH/s Antminers were sold and the remaining ones are of 11.85TH/s.
Also, I found that Bitmain (Antminer's Manufacturer) doesn't make all hardwares the same, every single mining hardware is different from the other.

So taking into account electricity cost $0.1/KW and the other demands costs like cooling, pool fee ...etc plus an additional PSU priced $150 from Bitmain's website as the Antminer can't be plugged directly to the wall, all this sum up into a cost around $3000 which is a big investment (at least, for me).

I know that Bitcoin miners contribute to the world of Bitcoin and their Bitcoin mining serves the purpose of disseminating new coins in a decenteralized manner as well as motivating people to provide security for the system, but seriously, what does Bitcoin mining contribute back to the life of Bitcoin miner (on a personal level)? Sorry for the long post.

Disclaimer: The Example above is for an explanation purpose (so that my subject can be clear enough), I'm not promoting nor recommending the product to anyone. Just asking for opinions and answers.
