1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Easiest Altcoin to Mine advice on: October 20, 2021, 11:41:56 PM
Hi,

I am looking for the easiest altcoin to mine that is in the top 100 crypto market cap rankings that requires less electricity as possible.

Any suggestions?

 
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Best place to get Yield on Stable Coins and other questions? on: October 19, 2021, 11:16:33 PM
Hi,

Stable coins such as USDC, Dai, GUSD and UST.

I'm looking for APY instead of APR cause interest does not get compounded in APR.

I prefer fixed rate over variable rate.

I prefer flexibility on my stable coins instead of locking them in a set time period.

I like to get the highest Yield and pay the less fees as possible.

If I use a centralized service like block-fi then will block-fi lend my deposit/balance out and if the borrower of my deposit/balancer defaults then will I lose all my money and block-fi will be liable for this loss?

For decentralized services, does this mean I have control of my private keys over my stable coins when lending them out? Also which Protocol in De-Fi is the most Audited and least risky? Are all De-Fi protocols have open-source code?

What is 'Loss of Principal' and 'Rug Pull' means?

If I lend GUSD on its own official Gemini Earn website then is my GUSD protected from any counterparty risks and borrowers defaults?

So in summary for centralized services there's counterparty risks and for decentralized services there's de-fi protocol risk correct? After weighing both which one you recommend I choose?

From all these questions answered what's the best centralized and decentralized sites out there?



3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / New to MetaMask help on: October 18, 2021, 10:04:06 PM
Hi,

Metamask settings:

- What is Use Blockies Identicon?

- Show Conversion on Testnets?

- Use Token Detection?

Any other settings that I can change to optimise metamask at cheapest fees?


Lastly I added Polygon to MetaMask, what next? How do I use the Polygon network for cheaper fees when sending/receiving ERC-20 tokens?
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Bitcoin 21 Million Fixed Supply Question? on: September 27, 2021, 06:09:42 PM
Yeah I know 1 bitcoin can be divided into 8 decimal places to lowest 0.00000001 Sat.

It Bitcoin becomes world reserve currency then is there enough 'SATS' to go around?


Question on Meme coins they are Dogecoin & Shiba Inu:

Dogecoin has over a Trillion supply!

Shiba Inu has over a Quadrillion supply!!!

Do these meme coins can also be divided into 8 decimal places and if so then why on earth would these meme coins would allow that? I don't understand? A Quadrillion supply is not enough for everyone in this planet without the need to divide 1 Shiba Inu further down? Like 0.00000001 Shiba Inu coin  Shocked
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Programming Languages for Crypto, which is the best? on: September 25, 2021, 11:41:17 PM
What programming language Satoshi used to create Bitcoin?

These are the most popular programming languages today:

- C
- C++
- Java
- JavaScript
- Python

These are the different types of programming languages:

- Procedural Programming Language
- Functional Programming Language
- Scripting Programming Language
- Logic Programming Language
- Object-Oriented Programming Language

Which type Bitcoin falls under?


So which type of programming language and which programming language is easiest for Debugging for Security Reasons and which one is the most hardware resource efficient/fastest to run?

I keep hearing that there's not that much apps released on Cardano because it uses a unpopular programming language called Haskell that most crypto app developers are not use to using hence lack of applications deployed on Cardano.

The question is why Charles used Haskell for Cardano, what does Haskell has that other programming languages don't? Potential for more powerful complex smart contracts in compared to Ethereum? If so will crypto app developers see this as worth it to invest their money and time resources into Haskell?

I remember the console wars Playstation 3 vs Xbox 360 were games released on Xbox 360 run better because the system was easier to develop for while the PS3 was difficult to develop for even though it had a more powerful complex architecture but that lead to higher development budgets and more time required for developers making games on the PS3.

Can the same be said about Crypto blockchains?
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Patented Copyright Blockchains/Cryptos idea, Possible? on: September 18, 2021, 12:50:09 PM
Hi,

Lets start off with a example:

If I find a cure for cancer I can patent it and make $billions off it. However if I find a natural cure for cancer lets say eating grass cures cancer. I'm not saying grass cures cancer but using it as a example for better understanding. Then I cant patent it because its out there natural open source decentralized where nobody owns it and hence nobody can sell it or monetize off it.

Linux operating systems are open source and I don't see their creators driving lambos. Its more of a charity community driven open source projects for the community that seek alternatives to microsoft windows and mac os and androids os that harvest people's data which is a bad thing. I will get replies saying android is open source but in reality the manufacturer of the phone puts their own layer on top of android source that doesn't make it open source private anymore.

On that notes above, in the crypto marketplace now, we see dozens of blockchains and 1000s of altcoins. They are all copying each other source codes because its open source decentralized where there's gonna be 1000 so called new projects every year that are not really new but copies with a new logo that scam $billions off retail investors. Or they copy the source code or blockchain and change 1 line of code or algorithm and say its new  Roll Eyes Litecoin for example.

With the upcoming regulatory rules on Crypto by the SEC, copying codes and scamming retail investors is a bad thing for the crypto market.


So is it possible to create a open source Decentralized blockchain or altcoin that is patented so no one can copy it? Or a Dao that monitor patented blockchains and take automated action against cryptos violating/copying it.

Or is it impossible to patent blockchains/cryptos unless its centralized Huh
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / How many Cardano Ada Dex are there? on: September 17, 2021, 11:53:34 PM
Lets list them here and you guys choose which 1 will be in top 10 cmc ranking in the next crypto bull market in a few years.

When will these dexs be released and how do you buy these tokens?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Which Blockchain, Platform, Ecosystem will be the Most Competitive for Eth 2.0? on: September 14, 2021, 03:47:27 PM
In lets say the next Bear Market within a year or two.


- Polkadot

- Binance Chain

- Binance Smart Chain

- Algorand

- Solana

- Fantom

- Cardano

- Synthetics

- Avalanche

- Terra

- Cosmos

- Polygon

Any other Popular ones that I missed out on?


What's up with Binance Chain & Binance Smart Chain  Huh

Or will Eth 2.0 kill all above in the list? But then again Eth 2.0 is like Coca Cola Brand in the Crypto market so there's always a Pepsi like Brand competitor to Eth 2.0 right and if so which Blockchain do you think it will be?


Which blockchain is the Fastest, Cheapest, Most Secure  Cool? Usually this determines the winner right?
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Which Algorithm will still be Surviving, Used & Secure in 25 Years time? on: September 14, 2021, 03:22:05 PM
Pow:

- CryptoNight
- Equihash
- NeoScrypt
- Quark
- Scrypt
- SHA-256
- X11
- X13

PoS:

- DPoS
- Hybrid - PoW & PoS


I understand Bitcoin is PoW and Ethereum 2.0 is PoS which are the most popular ones today.

If in future down the line PoS becomes outdated or unsecure for Eth 2.0 then obviously Eth will evolve to Eth 3.0 right?

Also note Quantum Computers in 25 years time.

Lastly which ones from the list above are the ones to avoid today never mind considering them in 25 years time?

Finally if all above will face there certain obsolete death for a obvious reason that is tech always evolves then if there is a new future unreleased Algorithm that makes all from above list look outdated and unsecure then can the blockchains today hard fork or upgrade to that future algorithm?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Which New Project you will Choose under the Cardano Ecosystem? on: September 08, 2021, 07:14:38 PM
From the following link:


Which will be in the top 20 and remain in the top 20 competing with Ethereum top ERC20 projects in the next bull market starting in 2024-25?

Or will Eth 2.0 kill Cardano? Eth 2.0 fees be cheaper than cardano?
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Ugh, There's gonna be another 5000 new Alts released under Cardano Ada on: September 07, 2021, 12:03:36 AM
Cardano Alonzo hard fork end of this week bringing defi, dex's, apps, smart contracts, bringing a whole new cardano ecosystem.

Theres 1000s of Altcoins ERC-20 tokens that have been released under the Ethereum ecosystem that have been scams and they have cluttered up coinmarketcap and coingecko.

The same will happen to Cardano and soon we will see 20,000 cryptocurrencies available to buy on coinmarketcap & coingecko that will scam billions off the retail investors  Angry

The question is how do we find the best cardano defi app coins tokens that will stay in the top 20 ranking competing with ethereum and its multi $billion ethereum projects like Uniswap and Terra and many more Huh

Cardano defi apps tokens fees will be super cheap compared to Eth defi until Eth 2.0 comes out.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / New to Cardano Ada Alonzo Hard Fork - DeFi, DEX, Smart Contracts & Apps on: September 06, 2021, 11:48:08 PM
Hi,

If I hold Ada before and after the hard fork at the end of this week then will I get a free 1:1 airdrop of the new Alonzo Ada? Like Bitcoin cash did to bitcoin holders back in Aug-Sep 2017?

On coinmarketcap where can I see cardano dex's or if they are not released for the public market then where can I buy ada dex's tokens?
13  Economy / Service Discussion / CoinMarketCal and OpenSea sites advice on: September 02, 2021, 10:34:08 PM
I understand CoinMarketCal is news showing latest blockchain updates for altcoins and OpenSea is for NFT's.

On Coinmarketcal how do I filter out all the noise in my search and only list the most relevant important news in my search results?

On Opensea how do I search and filter out so I can find the best buy NFT's in my search results? NFT's that be worth $$$$$$$$ in the future or in this current bull market?

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / New to Launchpads advice on: September 02, 2021, 01:49:28 AM
Hi new to Launchpads.

I like to invest in new and upcoming projects at discounted prices before they release on the public market. How do I buy in these private sale rounds at cheap prices?

Which is the most reputable best smart contract platform that has its own launchpad that introduces new upcoming projects? Which smart contract platform launchpad verifies and audits all upcoming/new projects and its code to check whether the project is a shit/scam coin?

Otherwise when looking for upcoming new projects on these launchpads how do you filter out the shit/scam coins and instead invest in the good ones?

Which launchpads you guys use to get in early? Cool
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Hackers/Public will have Access to Quantum Computers in 5-10 years? on: August 14, 2021, 01:34:19 PM
There's a couple of interesting white papers to read:

https://arqit-res.cloudinary.com/image/upload/v1627024109/Assessment_of_Quantum_Threat_To_Bitcoin_and_Derives_Cyrptocurrencies_nrp6iq.pdf

https://arqit-res.cloudinary.com/image/upload/v1627369111/Digital_assets_The_security_problem__yya4bn.pdf


So Quantum Computers will be available to buy in the shops in lets say 10 years time from now and 5 years from now the first commercial business grade quantum computers will be available for sale for businesses.

Quantum computers can get anyone's private keys in fraction of a second.

The few quantum computers in the world today owned by the Big tech giants such as google, Microsoft, even china has one is used to harvest all that data from billions of people to a single point Ai. These quantum computers are massive, require a lot of cooling and are power hungry that require nuclear reactors to run them. But these are the 1st generation quantum computers.

Eventually these quantum computers will get smaller, more efficient to run off the electricity in your home and everyone will have quantum computer in their bedrooms when they hit the shelves in shops or on Amazon online in 10 years time but at a crazy price tag so not everyone can afford one in 10 years time but they will get cheaper and become mainstream especially with gamers for obvious reasons. Playing fortnite at crazy 16k resolution at million frames per second.

So how can Bitcoin survive in this technological quantum era? The B in Bitcoin stands for Bits. Quantum computing is Qubits meaning it can be a binary 1 or 0 at the same time similarly like a light switch being on or off at the same time that sounds crazy and impossible.

Will there be Qitcoin or somewhat?
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Unregistered Securities SEC Crypto Regulations & Investor Protection Questions on: August 04, 2021, 10:09:14 PM
The Head of the SEC Gary said the upcoming crypto regulation is on Unregistered securities which is illegal.

When looking for altcoins on CoinMarketCap, how do we know which Alts raised money through ICO's?

So any Altcoin that raised money/capital from the beginning to fund its project is a Unregistered Security?

Are all POS coins come under Securities because POS coins can be sold straight away to raise money for the Alt project at the beginning because no waiting/mining is required on POS coins right?

Which ERC-20 coins or POS coins/projects did not need raised money from its beginning from investors?

So only POW coins like Bitcoin are exempt from this new regulation? But POW coins might face new energy wastage global warming regulation  Huh

When Gary says protections for Investors in crypto does he mean FDIC or SPIC Insurance protection? If so how this is implemented in crypto like it already is in Traditional Banks?

So all upcoming regulations and protections from the SEC only applies to USA based crypto alt projects & USA based crypto exchanges? If not then how can SEC regulate alts and exchanges outside of the USA because it is out of their jurisdiction correct? For example can the SEC have the jurisdiction & Power to shut down Chines Binance?

Lastly which altcoins are legal and registered as Securities with the SEC filings?

Finally the XRP Ripple Case, what is Ripple XRP main defence against the unregistered security allegation against them? If these upcoming regulations come into law soon before Ripple case is finished then Ripple will lose right?






17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Elon wants Bitcoin to be a Currency not a Asset from the 'B' Word on: July 22, 2021, 09:06:57 PM
- At what Market cap Bitcoin must be to become less volatile and more stable similar to the Swiss Franc currency CHF so bitcoin owners can start spending their Sats on everyday groceries and a morning commute coffee drink?

- When will Bitcoin become easy to use like a credit card, like swipe/contactless directly without using 3rd parties to facilitate this? I know there's bitcoin credit cards but they still using 3rd party Visa or Mastercard facility for this which is centralized not decentralized. What's the point of using decentralized bitcoin to pay for stuff when we still need to rely on middle man centralized visa or mastercard who can freeze your card anytime they feel like it. Bitcoin is suppose to be independent and decentralized. Imagine buying a lambo on a bitcoin credit card and realise at the checkout till desk visa or mastercard has declined your payment  Shocked

- Really Cheap or Free BTC transaction fees.

Bitcoin can become world reserve currency status overtaking $US Dollar if just the 3 above is accomplished and reached. If Bitcoin wants to be a Asset instead like Gold Store of Value then above 3 doesn't matter and yeah world reserve currency status doesn't matter too.


Elon says Bitcoin Mining can be used as a heater to heat up non residential rooms instead of using a normal conventional boiler/heater so it doesn't look like energy wastage. For example similar to using your bath water to water the plants in your garden or use the bath water to wash your car so no water wastage or not turning on the lights and staying in the dark to save energy. So what about bitcoin mining in hot countries in relation to Elon discussion on btc mining heating   Huh

Is it possible to put up bitcoin mining rig on each of his star link satellites that can get solar energy directly from the sun so it looks greener?

Why is it that only Bitcoin is picked on by governments and mainstream media blaming it as the climate destroyer of our planet when there's 1000s of industries out there especially the crude oil industry that does million times worse damage and banks that have brick and mortar branches that waste energy because most banking customers do online banking anyway Huh

I bet Tesla operations does more harm to the planet than Bitcoin. How can a bunch GPU's kill our planet and they not even overclocked also lol?

I can get a solar powered calculator and run useless math equations on it in the whole daytime outside before it gets dark which is waste of my time and waste of suns energy but as long its not killing the planet then who cares and why governments and mainstream media cares about bitcoin mining that is already 75% renewable anyway?

So has the Bitcoin Community decided whether Bitcoin will be a 'Currency' or 'Asset' and from there Bitcoin can move on and leave these stupid arguments behind

I know original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper mentions Currency but back in 2008/2009 it was suitable for currency then because back then fees were dirt cheap or free due to Btc being new back then with less volume and easier mining.
18  Economy / Economics / Real Inflation only happens when Central Banks print High Denominated Notes? on: June 23, 2021, 03:20:00 PM
I noticed that every country that experienced high/hyper inflation, the central bank in that country has to print a very high denominated fiat note/bill.

For example in Zimbabwe I see kids carrying notes in their pockets displaying on them $10 Trillion Zimbabwe dollars. These poor starving kids are trillionaires much richer than the richest billionaires like Elon Musk and Bill Gates on the planet on a monetary unit scale.

In the US the highest denominated note bill now is $100.

So the question is as long the highest denominated bill still remains $100 then there wont be any high/hyper inflation worries in the future?

I understand if the Federal Reserve printed a $1000 bill/note then that would be concerning right?

The Fed can print trillions and still print trillions but as long the fed keeps the highest denominated note bill to $100 they they can manipulate inflation in their control correct and keep their $US Dollar still in power?

Bitcoin is a hedge against inflation but if there's no inflation or there is inflation but manipulated to look like there's no inflation then what that will mean for bitcoin?
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / KNC or KNCL? Kyber on: May 20, 2021, 07:11:04 PM
Confused  Huh

Kyber Network Crystal & Kyber Network Crystal Legacy the same coins? Or is this like Bitcoin & Bitcoin Cash?

Which one is the most supported and liked by the Kyber community?

Which Kyber is on the Kraken exchange?
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin TapRoot Update? on: May 17, 2021, 11:03:10 PM
Can someone ELI5:

- Is this a hard fork or soft fork?

- A swap to a newer chain?

- If hard fork will bitcoin hodlers get free airdrop?


What date this year the update will happen?

Is this similar to the 'Segwit' update back in near fall in 2017?

What is TapRoot?
