1  Other / Off-topic / Share Good Movies Please? on: February 11, 2020, 07:54:09 AM
Can someone share some good movies to watch? Not necessarily new (but it is much better if at least latest from 2018 'til now) or any kind of movies but at least tell me what kind of movie are you sharing so I can choose each time I want to watch.

And also other sites that have free movies to watch aside from Movie123?

Thanks in advance guys, cheers!!!

Edit: since October 6th, 2020, please mention the movies only in the following format:

Movie title - year - genre - imdb link


Seven Pounds - 2008 - Drama -

The change was made in order to have a better idea about the mentioned movies (such as when the movie was launched, what's its genre) and also for reducing spams made by account farmers. If you feel the need to offer more info about a movie, feel free to do so (express if you liked it, talk about the actors, mention if it received an award and so on). But the posts must not offer less information than the one requested (movie's title, year and imdb link).

All the posts which won't respect the new format will be reported to moderators for being spam, in order to have them deleted.
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Iran seizes 1,000 Bitcoin mining machines after power spike on: June 30, 2019, 10:05:05 AM

Authorities in Iran have seized roughly 1,000 Bitcoin mining machines from two former factories, according to state TV reports.

The action was taken following a spike in electricity consumption.

Demand for power rose by 7% in June and cryptocurrency mining was thought to be the main cause, an energy ministry spokesman told local state-run media.

One researcher said Bitcoin was gaining more and more attention in Iran as a potential means of storing wealth.

"Two of these bitcoin farms have been identified, with a consumption of one megawatt," Arash Navab, an electricity official, told state television.

Can this confirmed that indeed Iran is already into bitcoin now as a hedge specially as fears of a total war with US?

Magician feared drowned after attempting Houdini-style trick in Indian river

An Indian stuntman who went missing in the Hooghly River on Sunday after attempting a Houdini-style daredevil stunt is feared drowned, according to authorities.
Chanchal Lahiri was tied up with steel chains and rope and slowly lowered into the water for the escape stunt near the Howrah Bridge in Kolkata. He was expected to free himself and emerge out of the water, as he had done many times before.
But onlookers waited for about 30 minutes before launching a frantic search along the banks and in the water. They have so far been unable to find him.


I feel sad for this magician though, looks like he has run out of luck this time. From the said article, he looks professional, however, when you involved nature in your magic, it could be very 'tricky'.

Julian Assange, Wikileaks co-founder, faces 17 new charges in US

The US justice department has filed 17 new charges against Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange, who is facing extradition from the UK.

The latest charges accuse him of receiving and unlawfully publishing the names of classified sources.

He was previously charged last month with one count of conspiring with ex-intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to gain access to the Pentagon network.

Assange is serving a jail sentence in the UK for jumping bail.

It was while he was on bail facing sexual assault allegations in Sweden that he sought asylum in the Ecuadorean embassy in London in 2012. He has always denied the accusations.

The 47-year-old was arrested on 11 April after Ecuador abruptly withdrew his asylum, and later jailed for 50 weeks for skipping bail.

Just as what everyone is expecting, US finally stepping on the toes of Julian and has filed 17 new charges. I wouldn't be surprised if London will extradite Julian in the next couple of months and face that charges and shut him good a good 30-50 years prison term.

The world's richest man, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and his wife MacKenzie have agreed a record-breaking divorce settlement of at least $35bn (£27bn).

Damn, I think this is the biggest divorce settlement in history. So tips for women, find someone rich and divorce them.  Grin. Seriously though, it only means that even if you have all the money in the world, you can't find happiness.

What are thoughts on this?

Ok, it's time to listen from another experts here.  Grin

A crypto trader and analyst, going by the Twitter handle @filbfilb, produced another chart which claims that Bitcoin will experience a bullish run up to $5,000 by the month of May.

I don't know maybe he is a user in this community. $5k though is within reach short term as compare to those so called experts claiming that bitcoin will go higher than 5 digits this year.

Chinese Court Rules in Favor of Bitcoin, Calls Crypto Transactions Legal

After a year of the Chinese authorities effectively outlawing cryptocurrency and related activities in the country, a Chinese court has now ruled in favor of Bitcoin. While hearing a case involving digital currencies, the Shenzhen Court of International Arbitration said that owning and transferring Bitcoin is not forbidden by Chinese law.

I was quite surprised to read this news because we all know that the Chinese has made its U-turn against Bitcoin since last year. So its interesting if one of their courts rule in favor of bitcoin. But I still have mix emotions though, we all know that the Chinese governments is hostile towards crypto so I don't think that this will set any precedence in Chinese court though. Pressure will be put on the courts to go against crypto, that's for sure.

Sears, the store that changed America, declares bankruptcy

New York (CNN Business)Sears, the once-dominant retail chain that changed how Americans shopped and lived, has filed for bankruptcy.
The 132-year-old company has been struggling for several years and is drowning in debt. The final straw was a $134 million debt payment due Monday that it could not afford.
Sears Holdings (SHLD), the parent company of Sears and Kmart, is among dozens of prominent retailers to declare bankruptcy in the era of Amazon (AMZN).

Oh well, sad to see Sears go but competition is really tough out there specially with the booming online business so its just a matter of time before those giants go down one by one. It will have a negative impact as more people is now out of job not just in the US but in other parts as well, specially call centers or customer service representative around the globe (Asia) that supports Sears.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / CEO, Roger Ver Plans his Own Exchange, To make BCH as a Base Currenc on: October 10, 2018, 07:40:12 AM CEO, Roger Ver Plans his Own Exchange, To make BCH as a Base Currency

Quote CEO, Roger Ver, who is also one of the first investors of Bitcoin and sometimes referred to as “Bitcoin Jesus” is considering to launch his own exchange.

In an interview with Bloomberg in Malta, he said that he will be taking help from other partners to develop the exchange platform but didn’t disclose the amount of investment he is making into. He said the company will be considering to build the exchange in-house. Ver said that he would make Bitcoin Cash as the base currency for the exchange.

I just laugh when I see this news. Roger Ver is hell bent on seeing his beloved BCH to be the top coins in the next coming years. But for me this is a wrong moved, a exchange that makes a altcoin its base currency? I doubt that traders will flock, or if they go and trade, I doubt it will enjoy the support and will just be another trading platform out there. What are you thoughts?
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Hackers Breach MEGA Chrome Extension To Steal Crypto Private Keys on: September 05, 2018, 07:18:04 AM
MEGA Falls Victim To Cybersecurity Breach

On Tuesday morning, concerned individuals across the web took to social media to reveal that malicious code had taken the place of MEGA’s chrome extension, which has been downloaded tens of millions of times across the globe. Some claimed that the updated code allowed the extension to gather sensitive data from popular websites across the internet.

At first, many believed that this hack only affected popular websites, like Google and Facebook, but upon further analysis, cybersecurity experts noted that the updated MEGA extension could grab sensitive data from crypto-related sites as well.

Ricardo Spagni, a well-known Monero developer, backed up this claim, telling his followers that Monero and Ethereum private keys could be stolen via the combination of MEGA Chrome (version)

A not so friendly news to hear. I don't used MEGA Chrome extension, but I just want to give everyone a fair warning about a recent hack. Also mentioned in the articles are Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Github, MyEtherWallet, MyMonero, And IDEX were all affected. So stay safe everyone.
12  Other / Meta / Edit: My hacked account was used for merit abuse by this user: bgpsq on: July 11, 2018, 12:06:21 PM
I'm requesting the mods to perma ban this account: bgpsq.

If anyone is not aware of, my account was hacked about three weeks ago.

Fortunately, I was able to get it back from the hacker yesterday. The steps to retrieved my account  is very simple. I have PM my FJ manager Hhampuz and LoyceMobile to verify. However, I was surprised to find out that the hacker/s has sent all my remaining merits to bgpsq. Which led me to believed that either the hacker is related to this account, or it is the hacker itself. If you take a look at his merits someone sent him 50 merits as well.

I think global mods need to look at that account because its very suspicious and he is really trying to rank up very quick. And should be perma ban to cut off his head as early as today.

13  Economy / Gambling discussion / Las Vegas casino workers may strike for first time in decades on: May 23, 2018, 03:37:59 PM
Thousands of unionized hotel and casino workers in Las Vegas are ready to go on strike for the first time in more than three decades.

About 25,000 members of the Culinary Union voted Tuesday to authorize a citywide strike in Las Vegas unless they reach a contract deal with their employers by June 1, union spokeswoman Bethany Khan said.
The contracts of 50,000 workers, including bartenders, guest room attendants, cocktail servers, porters and cooks at 34 casino resorts on the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Las Vegas are set to expire May 31.

Is this a good news for online gambling? If Las Vegas casino workers are going for a strike, gamblers around the world will only have few options to go and I think most of them will shift to online gambling that might have a good impact on the market price.

14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / 'Fake News': Russian Official Reportedly Denies Involvement with Petro on: March 26, 2018, 07:30:27 AM
The Russian government is pushing back against reports that it helped Venezuela launch its controversial "petro" cryptocurrency.

The Russian government was very quick in denying the report that they indeed help Venezuela set its own crypto currency to somewhat escape the US-led sanctions. Do you guys think that Russia is not really involved or just washing their hands on this matter to avoid friction with the US and the its allies?

Personally, I do think that the Russians is somewhat involved or secretly funding this 'petro crptos', as we all know how Russians works from behind. We don't even know the source of the money being poured in Venezuela's petro, and I highly suspect that maybe some rich Russians is a investor.

Remember they are still not off the hook with the poisoning of a Russian ex-double agent as Britain is accusing them of being involved.

Cryptocurrency Market Bounces Back on Positive G20 Watchdog Statements

The cryptocurrency market has received a much-needed adrenaline shot in the form of positive statements emerging from the upcoming G20 summit on cryptocurrencies that will take place in Buenos Aires on Monday and Tuesday.

It looks like Mike Carney, has brought some positivism towards the market with his statement about cyptocurrency. He is the chair of the FSB the board that works with the financial regulation for G20 members.

He has valid point. crypto doesn't pose big risk as small percentage around the world is into it.

However, what's important in the result of their meeting in Monday-Tuesday. I hope that the outcome will be on our favor so that we can see the price goes North again.

What's your take on the recent bounce of bitcoin price, just hours ago I saw the price as low as $7500 per coinmarketcap and then a surge of doomsayers thread saying that bitcoin can go as low as $2500. Lol.

Now the price is completely reverse itself, care to share your thoughts specially those who are calling that the price will go down? I really love to hear your thoughts on the current reversal.

1. Another bulltrap?
2. Dead cat bounce?
3. $7500 is the bottom and its seems that investors can't deny the fact that is quite cheap already that why they need to get it at this price?

What Happened to Bitcoin Today: A Recap of the Blockchain's Big Split

It wasn't the first attempt to fork the bitcoin blockchain, but it was certainly the most memorable.

As reported earlier today, Bitcoin Cash, a new cryptocurrency, was created when a group of miners "forked" from the main bitcoin blockchain – in short, they switched to a new, incompatible software that changed the rules by which the network would function.

Over the course of the day, miners backing the project succeeded in officially branching off, ultimately adding blocks to the separate blockchain, and in the process, building what they believe could come to be a growing economy centered around its development.

In doing so, they also marked the end of a controversial effort that began as just one of many ways to chart a new technical roadmap in the face of a wide range of alternatives.

Off to the races

As developer and Paxos principal architect Jimmy Song predicted earlier this week, the day's defining moment came at around 8:20 a.m. ET – the time miners running the new software had agreed to begin diverging from the main chain.

That pivotal period started at approximately 12:37 p.m. UTC (or for those keeping time in bitcoin terms, block number 478,558), as it was then that Bitcoin Cash miners began to seek what would become the new network's first block.

Here, they were working under specific constraints – the block had to be larger than the standard 1 MB size limit still imposed on the main bitcoin blockchain.

The waiting game

et, as detailed on CoinDesk's live blog (which you can catch up on here), the creation of first block perhaps took longer than supporters had hoped.

Given the relatively small amount of miners running the new software, and the fact that the software carried over with it the same difficulty that regulates how easy it is to find blocks based on the number of miners, Bitcoin Cash struggled to keep up with the main bitcoin network, which quickly grew in size.

Indeed, as hours passed, some observers began questioning whether miners would continue the pursuit at all (given that they were missing out on bitcoin's mining rewards by doing so).

The idea emerged that Bitcoin Cash could go as long as a day without a new block, given the difficulty and the low hash rate, circulated among some observers.

BitGo engineer Jameson Lopp ultimately had the closest call: "It's likely going to take at least several hours," he tweeted.

A block is found

Then, it happened.

At about 6:14 p.m. UTC, ViaBTC mined the first Bitcoin Cash block, which came in at a block size of 1.915 MB. That block contained 6,985 transactions, according to public data.

Since then, four Bitcoin Cash blocks have been created, though only the first of the initial five had a block larger than 1 MB. By comparison, the most recent block contained 520 transactions, using about 0.4 MB of space in the transaction block.

With the creation of those blocks, Bitcoin Cash entered a new phase in which it became an actual network – albeit one that was given to delays.

The block's passage also seemed to spur launches on digital currency exchanges, with trading now live on bourses like Kraken, TheRockTrading and OKCoin, among others.

Fork Watch: Take Extra Precaution When Trying to Access Post Fork Tokens

Bitcoin holders should be aware that during and after a fork people can make mistakes when differentiating between the two chains. Alongside the confusion, there’s also a chance that malicious actors posing to be trustworthy may promise people help with access to ‘Bitcoin Cash’ tokens – and steal people’s private keys. The risk of losing bitcoin to errors such as these will be heightened during and after a network fork.

Bitcoin, Ethereum Bounce Back Hard To Reach $2,400 and $240

Bitcoin has rebound to $2,400 and Ethereum is up 25 percent in a day as optimism returns to cryptocurrency markets in a big way.

The shift into the green coincides with reaching the required consensus for BIP 91 to lock in for Bitcoin. This paves the way for SegWit activation without the need for a hard fork.

Meanwhile, Ethereum has recovered spectacularly from last week’s seismic losses, currently trading at an average of $242 according to Coinmarketcap.
