1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / How to trade on Trust wallet with the Poocoin app on: June 21, 2021, 08:12:45 AM
After my comment on this thread here, directing a user who had issues on how to make purchases on the Dapp through Trust wallet, it suddenly occured to me that there could be other users who may be having similar issue too. These users may never get to read that comment I made which actually helped out that user. This is because it was in the bounty thread of the altcoin section and my response was totally different from the topic title but it did help the user solve their issue. So, I decided to open a thread here and elaborate on that issue to help more users.

It's on how to use the Poocoin app to make purchases on the Trust wallet. It's easier than buying directly on the Trust wallet itself because of the slippage requirements which traders will have to adjust to trigger trades. Most times, the time it takes to adjust slippage percentage makes a lot of traders miss out on trades because of the volatility and fluctuations involved.

I was a little skeptical the first time I used it after watching a dude teach it online, just like a lot may be now. But when I eventually tried it, it worked wonders. Long story short:

Connect your Dapp browser on Trust wallet to the Poocoin app by keying in on the browser.

Once done, it will take you to the Poocoin trading platform. Activate it by clicking on connect, change the default Ethereum to Binance Smart Chain by tapping on Metamask/Trust Wallet (I like trading on Pancakeswap, so I go with Smart Chain). Please, remember to always use the contract address of the token you want in the search tab instead of just typing the token name. The reason being that sometimes there are tokens with similar names and that can confuse anyone to trade the wrong token. But with contract address one gets the right token. Copy and paste the contract address on that tab and it's token will appear automatically.

Then you're good to go. It displays charts and trading indicators like what we have on Tabtrader or Metatrader. You can adjust the indicators any way you want and Time Frames can be changed too. You can use the Multichart option too to view several trades all at the same time.

In fact, with Poocoin there are more and better options than what Tabtrader has. Poocoin app is very easy to navigate too. Who else is having this mellifluous and stressless experience using Poocoin?
2  Other / Politics & Society / Bite or Birth-day for Trump on: June 14, 2021, 07:51:32 AM
I saw this on Twitter from this user @RealS8nn as ex-president, Donald Trump, birthday is today. At first glance the cake didn't mean a thing to me. But then, I remembered Trump's support for Twitter ban in Nigeria by the incumbent dictator Mohammadu Buhari. Donald Trump truly deserves all bashing he could get today, really?

Should it be a birthday for him or a biteday? He truly bit the dust in defeat.

3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Iran bans Bitcoin too on: May 27, 2021, 10:28:13 AM
Iran bans Bitcoin a few days after China did. This is coming after what seemed like an aftereffect of the Chinese action that saw Bitcoin dip severely (it still hasn't recovered from it).

I'm wondering if there are going to be any side effects or consequences for the Bitcoin community with the action taken by the Iranian government or is it just another case of "the snail shouldn't talk where animals with horns are asked for opinions"? Iran isn't such a big name in the crypto space, by the way.

According to report, the ban is a temporary one which will last only four months to enable the country correct its power blackout.

Do you think this ban from Iran is another FUD?
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Elon Musk again on: March 12, 2021, 08:11:13 PM
What does anyone think about the latest tweet from Elon Musk in what looked like taking a swipe at Bitcoin?

Actually, TBC reminded me of The Billion Coin; a scam coin that never came into existence since 2017 it was rumoured to be. Its community sadly believe till date that it will one day become a real use case coin. They're still in denial that it's a scam.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Now that Bezos dethrones Musk, what with Dogecoin on: February 18, 2021, 12:08:52 PM
I am beginning to get skeptical once more about the future of Dogecoin now that Elon Musk, the Tesla boss, has been dethroned on the leader chart of the world's richest men on earth by the Amazon billionaire — Jeff Bezos —, the same guy he toppled less than 7 weeks ago to the number one list. What is the way forward for Dogecoin? Will doge relapse and be comfortable with the fun token it was before Elon's pump saw it to the unprecedented height it got to?

It will be quite understandable if Elon doesn't push doge henceforth as he will be busy on strategy to reclaim his spot. Well, events of days ahead will properly unveil the true nature of things. We only sit and watch as these things begin to unfold.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Doggy take over — Elon Musk? on: February 09, 2021, 01:33:57 PM
In the heat of this Bitcoin frenzy, just imagine Elon Musk should have the below picture and then make a tweet like this on his handle: Doggy supply burn. With a hash tag —
What do you think the outcome will be for Dogecoin?

7  Economy / Service Discussion / Conflicting data on Coingecko, why? on: January 14, 2021, 08:02:34 PM
Before today, I had believed that the total number of exchanges listed on the Coingecko site were just the way as written out until I crosschecked that today. I few days ago, it recorded 419 as the number of exchanges listed and then today I saw 421 and that set my curiosity in motion as I felt the need to find out the two newly listed exchanges. However, what I saw when I checked got me thinking if every other information on the site or other crypto sites like it are often accurate. The total number according to the check revealed 375 exchanges as against the 421 up there. Now I ask, what could be responsible for the conflicting data? Is it just me or any other person has observed such discrepancies?

8  Economy / Speculation / Bitcoin; Then and Now on: January 02, 2021, 04:05:01 PM
Before the great crash of 2018, the total market cap on the Coinmarketcap site was slightly above $800billion. Specifically, according to that data, it stood at $815,596,371,956 from snapshot taken on December 17, 2017 with Bitcoin at $19,140 and an overwhelming dominance of 71.5%

Today, being January 2, 2021 Bitcoin zoomed passed $31,000 pushing the total market cap to $824,684,567,217 with a 70.5% dominance. Yet, it doesn't still look like the market is going to be slowing down any time soon. The year got started on a great pedestal. 2021 is certainly going to be that year when people will constantly be checking their apps for market prices.



I am far from thinking that the market will experience a crash now. But then, that's my thought. I could be wrong. What do you guys think?
9  Other / Politics & Society / The US, weeks after the elections? on: November 09, 2020, 05:21:41 PM
Honestly, those of us who aren't politicians can only but imagine what politicians go through when in lost of elections or their excitements when in win. In anticipation of what next for the outcome of the US presidential election in weeks to come, I will like to ask these questions so we can objectively garner some expected answers to them.

Biden, hitting the ground running?

1. Now that Trump has lost out, will he be humble in defeat and reach out to Biden or continue to cry foul and allege electoral impropriety?

2. Will he move out of the Whitehouse before January 20th as quickly as he went in four years ago or want to be obstinate and remain there?

3. Will Trump be that embittered not to attend the inauguration of Biden as the 46th president of the US?

4. Will his supporters (even those from the Christian community) take his defeat in good faith as what fate brought them and not go wild with rioting?

These and many more are questions waiting for answers.
10  Other / Politics & Society / Apprehension — The US Elections on: November 05, 2020, 08:52:21 AM
The apprehension that built up during the US 2020 Presidential Election is almost over now with the way things stand now. Although the final result hasn't been made officially, it's obvious Joe Biden will take the day.

Pix 1: The contenders
Pix 2: The Result
Pix 3: Apprehensive supporter  Grin

Honestly, I don't know why President Donald Trump is alleging electoral malfeasance from the electoral college since it was the same system that ensured his victory against Hillary Clinton four years ago.

12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / ClipX steals KYC data and shuts down on: September 17, 2020, 07:11:40 AM
The ClipX project, another bounty, managed by the Bounty Detectives' team early today let down bounty hunters gently in what seems a soft exit by announcing that it would no longer continue with the project. The announcement was made here:

That was after it had cunningly collected KYC documents from hunters (even though that wasn't explicitly on the bounty thread). ClipX insisted it was going to be a passport document for KYC or nothing. It was really a suspicious move but anxious hunters neglected it. Why ask for only a passport for KYC and not any other document.

My advise to bounty hunters:
1. Don't participate in any bounty without escrowed rewards.
2. Don't be in a rush to participate in every bounty that comes up.
3. Follow only trusted Bounty Managers.
4. DYOR on any project and don't rely on BMs. Most of them don't even research a project before going into contract with project team.

Anyone else got any advice for bounty hunters, especially the noobs among them?
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Scam Claims Support by South African President on: September 15, 2020, 07:35:59 AM
I brought this issue up here so that the community can jointly peruse it and make dissecting contributions if it's a positive or negative on the image of Bitcoin.

There is a Bitcoin investment scheme called “Bitcoin Revolution South Africa” which recently claimed that President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa is one of its endorsers, in addition to personalities like billionaire Patrice Motsepe, rugby star Naas Botha, politician Pravin Gordhan and comedian Trevor Noah and their pictures splashed on the alleged scam site. These are heavy weights in that country with huge followership and such an allegation shouldn't be viewed lightly.

My second question is this: Will this development further entrench the idea of Bitcoin in the minds of their fans or dispel their interest?

14  Economy / Services / Mpama's Free Bitcoin Acceleration Services on: July 30, 2020, 06:15:45 AM
After suffering a three-day delayed transaction on the blockchain and having to fight through a bout of worry if my Bitcoin would ever arrive the wallet I had sent it to, while on it, I went in search of how and what to do to avoid such in the future, it eventually went through 24hrs later after I asked a user here Spider703, for help on his thread.

The anxiety was something else as I needed it confirmed urgently. After that incident I decided to help other users who may also be in that situation I was a few days ago.

So, feel free to post your delayed TX ID here if you want it speed up. You can also pm me on telegram

Tips are welcome if you feel like it after your transaction has been confirmed. BTC: 12nchg3tMbbtbVgYNW3teQTYXqiuvmQgqi
15  Local / Other languages/locations / African Proverbs in Pidgin on: July 10, 2020, 04:50:19 AM
I have been meaning to do this for a while now but each time I get distracted and laggard. I want us to have an avenue of sharing some of our indigenous proverbs while still learning the crypto stuff.

— E don tey wey I be dey plan to do this thing here but each time too much distractions dey carry my mind comot from am. I go like make our area people share some of our local proverbs here with their explanations. I go put the proverbs in bold.

Share a proverb, and then put up its meaning. It will be best if the proverb is written in pidgin English.

Make I kick start am with some Warri flavour. Area!

Nor be today wey yansh don dey back.
Meaning: We are used to such a situation.

Dem nor dey tell blind man sey salt nor dey soup, you fit tell am sey oil nor dey.
Meaning: Obvious things don't need explanations.
16  Other / Meta / 2FA on Forum Accounts on: May 29, 2020, 06:24:40 AM
I have been thinking lately with all these incessant account hacks going on in this forum that it would be a welcome development if theymos would avail us a 2FA option for accounts here. I mean, that should help strengthen the security features of accounts here.

I don't know if this suggestion has been made anywhere else here as I couldn't find any thread on it before putting this out. If there is any, I will put this down.

I will like to read from other users on this.
17  Economy / Scam Accusations / Who else was scammed by ALGO? on: March 12, 2020, 08:54:02 PM
It's been a while now since the end of the ALGO bounty managed by Orengitu;u=1068599 whose telegram handle is @BMGILEH. The bounty started and ended in 2019. The token has been listed on the CMC since June 2019. However, bounty hunters haven't been rewarded or paid what is due to them and it looks like there isn't any plan of ALGO rewarding participants as the bounty thread and spreadsheet have since been deleted, leaving no trace of it on the forum anymore. This is complete robbery and scam not paying hunters who helped in spreading the advert about the project.

Other bounties managed by Orengitu are Orionix and Hinto.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is Paul Solotshi the pseudonymous Satoshi? on: June 03, 2019, 07:47:15 AM
There are incriminating evidences suggesting that Paul Solotshi is the pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto in an article I just read this morning. It points clearly that one of the reasons that the Satoshi's one million Bitcoin hasn't moved is because the fellow has been in orison since 2002 till date. Below is the link and it makes for an interesting and convincing read.

What are your thoughts?
19  Other / Off-topic / What Temperament Says About You on: June 01, 2019, 05:39:48 PM
I have come to compartmentalize every human I meet for the first time into temperaments and expectations.

Normally, it takes me between 2-5 minutes to do that if we are having a discussion or trying to make acquaintances but longer if I am observing from afar. Honestly, it's been very easy for me relating with people that way and it keeps my sanity.

I got this idea after reading Tim Lahaye's book Why You Act The Way You Do.

There are four temperaments listed and every human is a mixture of two of the four with one always dominating.

Permit me to do a recap and my expectations and how I handle these temperaments:

Choleric - Extrovert and Domineering, Hard Worker, Quick Tempered (most times unnecessarily, anyway).

My Expectations: I see someone who likes authority and always wants to be in charge of any situation even when they know next to nothing about the situation.

Phlegmatic - Introvert and Docile, Lacklustre, Lukewarm, Chief Procrastinator, Indifferent and Nonchalant to things around them.  The book describes people of this temperament as "Christians before being born again" because of their soft and amiable nature.

My Expectations: I see this set as people who like to be led. They hardly make up their minds on things without seeking validation from others. They're the best people to employ in offices if you crave loyalty and obedience. But be ready to always drive them to efficiency if you must counter their constant "I go, I go (I shall, I shall)" and forgetfulness. I hardly have any issues against this temperament apart from it being my worst. It's even worse when a man has it.

Melancholy - As the name suggests is the constant face value mourners. They always look sad and reticent. You definitely want to keep your distance meeting them for the first time. Introvert, Moody, Lone Ranger, Meticulous and Fastidious to details (a Mel can iron his stockings and bedspreads. He is that meticulous, sadly). Perfection driven. Tough on situations (sometimes unnecessarily). They are slow at making up their minds on things but once they do, they hardly back out. Difficult to trust others but once they do they can be fun to be with.

My Expectations: Difficult set to deal with but I can confidently count on their words as bond. They are difficult to win over and sometimes it's a pain trying to even convince them. But once this is achieved, I feel at home with them. This is my best temperament. I can employ someone of this disposition once I am sure of willingness to learn on their part.

Sanguine - Extrovert, Loquacious. Boastful, Gesticulate a lot and most times would touch their listeners to gain attention. Attention seekers. The book describes them as, "Seeing their mouths before seeing them." I had to laugh at that description. There are just one or two I have come in contact in life who aren't boastful. They always want to sound high on achievements which they may not even have just to make others feel envious. They are best as employees for advertising agencies and care services.

My Expectations: I don't take their words as truth because I believe there is always a sugarcoat in whatever they say. I am short of seeing them as perpetual liars. They are as unsteady as the rivers. But they are your best companions when you're moody.

I hope no one takes offence at this reality. If you must do, let's read your side of the post.
20  Economy / Service Discussion / Which Mixer is getting axed next? on: May 28, 2019, 01:18:32 AM
First, it was Bestmixer services that got truncated and the signature advertorials ended abruptly in the 8th Week, then a few days later

Bitblender opted out of running their signature campaigns in a dramatic manner yesterday.

Which Mixer is next? Is this going to be the end of the Mixers? What really is going on here? I know the cyber security dudes are keeping a close watch on the Bitcoin mixing sites. But what really is going on?
