41  Economy / Exchanges / Omg Help Exchange threatened to get me Rekt! on: February 24, 2021, 10:55:29 PM
Hello,

Poloniex said that they credited/deposited my account with coins by mistake   Huh

Lets say Poloniex credited my account with over 1000 Bitcoins and a day later I withdrew them and liquidated them elsewhere and bought other coins with it because I assumed it was a free airdrop or reward in my account or whatever promotion I see all the time on exchanges because I see free air drops of new coins in my other exchange accounts few times a year so I assumed these new coins in my Poloniex account are legally mine.

I'm from UK and Poloniex is in USA I believe.

Poloniex saying they will get authorities involved  Angry

What is Poloniex Terms of service/User Agreement regarding coin deposits and legally speaking who is liable for what if this turns into a civil legal matter?
42  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin $1Trillion Market Cap questions on: February 17, 2021, 04:47:40 PM
Okay it took Bitcoin 12 years to reach up to around $1trillion market cap.
Apple reached $1trillion marketcap in 2018 and doubled it to $2trillion in 2020 in just 2 years!
What will it take for Bitcoin to double its marketcap to $2trillion resulting in $100k for each btc this year?
Where the extra $1000billion will come from to make this happen? Okay Elon Musk spent $1.5b but that leaves $998.5 billion left to go right?


Did the corona virus helped Apple to double its marketcap because the forced lockdowns meant more people needed to buy iphones to keep in touch with friends & family?

There's about 2Trillion helicopter money coming soon from the federal reserve printers, how much of this do you guys think from retail investors will go into bitcoin?
43  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Which Stablecoin is the most Trustworthy? on: February 13, 2021, 08:41:36 PM
Lets say for example that the auditors/regulators has found that USDT Tether has printed tokens out of thin air that are not backed by the fiat $dollars, from there what will happen to USDT on the basis of this news?:

- Is it possible for a stablecoin to crash to 0?

- Will centralised exchanges start delisting USDT in light of this news?

- What will happen to all of the USDT tokens in the millions of user wallets, become worthless?

- Will all decentralised projects smart contracts that used USDT in them be automatically cancelled/void?

For beginners the word Stablecoin sound stable 'no risks'.

What's the best decentralized stablecoin out there where you can earn interest on or stake it?

Otherwise which centralized stablecoin is backed by FDIC or SIPC protection policies?
44  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Can China takeover Bitcoin network? on: February 13, 2021, 07:52:28 PM
Most btc mining is done in China because electricity is cheap there and all mining hardware originates from there also right?

China controls over 50% of the btc hashrate meaning they can do a 51% attack on the bitcoin network or control which btc transactions are valid according to their liking correct?

Has the chinese government or chinese central bank added bitcoins to their treasury reserves apart from the tons of gold they have been buying recently?

If the chinese govenment/central bank has bitcoins in its treasury then there is no incentive for them to raid and take control of the mining pools in china otherwise they be shooting themselves in the foot right because they be crashing the price value of their btc treasury reserves correct?

Do you think electricity will get more expensive in China and by when? Higher electricity costs should encourage mining out of China to other countries so the mining becomes more decentralized.

Finally if the Chinese government/central bank dont have bitcoins in their treasuries and release their digital chinese currency CBDC then from there what guarantees can be made to long term btc investors that the chinese regime wont raid btc mining pools in China or torturing/threatening mining pool owners into handing over the hashrate control to them or force mining pool owners to get together together into 1 big mining pool company owned by the chinese authorities?

46  Other / Beginners & Help / Best way to put my Crypto to Work, Passive Income? on: February 08, 2021, 01:57:34 AM
Like for example earn interest on my crypto or loan it out or what other ways are there that I don't know yet?

These services above that I mentioned, is there a decentralised service, where I still control the keys and also there is no 3rd party/middle man/counterparty risk?

For example I see ads everywhere like deposit your Bitcoins into so called platforms and earn up to 10% interest. For example if someone has 10 bitcoins worth $400k now and deposited their bitcoins into this service for $40k a year on interest return. Sounds great however what if the platform gets hacked or platform freeze your account or platform goes bankrupt or whatever counterparty risk it is, the depositor will lose their 10 bitcoins correct?

What's the best decentralised services out there?

Lastly can a hardware wallet like ledger nano offer such services through their ledger live app and you still have control of your keys on your crypto right?

Otherwise who's crazy enough to take huge risks to sign up for these such services? Shocked

If there's no decentralised service exists yet, when will we get such decentralised services?


Finally in the meantime if there's no option except for centralized services then which one is the best on the market now and also are they covered by FDIC or SPIC programs?



47  Economy / Economics / Dollar Index DXY advice needed on: February 04, 2021, 08:43:46 PM
I see the dollar index is rising putting downward price pressure on gold.

Questions I like to ask:


- Is DXY index going up because Euro EUR currency is going down now?

- Will all that money printing for stimulus cheques coming soon courtesy of the Biden administration, will that put downward price pressure on the DXY because of inflation or is DXY is only measured against EUR and other currencies regardless of how much inflation there is in the $US Dollar? Lets say there is Hyperinflation with both $US Dollar and EURO at the same time then will that mean DXY wont be affected?

- Will DXY be updated to include the Chinese Yuan currency and approx. when will that be?

- Like gold can DXY put downward pressure on Bitcoin too?

- Can cashing out assets to the $Dollar, like selling off stocks, selling bitcoins for $dollars increase the DXY? I ask because of the march stock market crash last year the DXY jumped up in price at the same time.

- When people spend $Dollars, then will that put downward price pressure on DXY? Is it spending Dollars from savings or from debt that causes this?

- Will low interest rates put downwards price pressure on DXY because it encourages more spending and less saving? Also this encourages a lot of borrowing to spend that should boost the economy but does a US economy that is running on debt increases or decreases the DXY?

- Is it high DXY that causes Crude Oil prices to go up or vice versa?

- If the USA changes its paper fiat $Dollar currency to the newer blockchain CBDC Central Bank Digital Currency digital programmable new $dollar money system, then will that replace or Reset the DXY to 0?

48  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Last 2017/18 Bull Market compared to Current One on: January 28, 2021, 12:06:13 PM
The last ath 20k bull market back in dec 2017, btc has hit 14k support from ath 20k five times before finally breaking 14k support on the 6th time it hit it. From there it was end of the bull market entering the bear market. It took about a month to break the 14k support on the 6th time

Fast forward to today are we seeing something similar today with the same winter months like back in 2017/18, everything looks the same except everyone now is saying this is early stages of the bull market run by big institutions. If that's the case then it should not break below the 30k support right Huh We can see btc has hit 30k support twice from ath 42k. So after another month from 42k ath are we are going to break 30k support around 7th feb to enter a bear market like last time?


49  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / If Bitcoin had a Billion Max supply instead of 21 million.... on: January 25, 2021, 10:57:44 AM
Then how much you think the price of 1 btc be today? Is it just doing some simple math to work out the price or is it more to it?

If 1/8th of the world population had 1 btc each then what you guys think the price will be?

There's a 1000 million in 1 billion.
50  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Is it possible for a Billion max supply capped altcoin to reach $100? on: January 25, 2021, 10:54:13 AM
Bitcoin has max 21 million coins, this low amount gives it that fundamental value.

Can a altcoin with a billion max supply reach $100 each?

Has any alts in history with a billion or billion+ but no more than a trillion coins reach $100 each?
51  Economy / Speculation / FUDS are big Confirmations that were in a Bull Market!!!!!! on: January 22, 2021, 01:10:31 AM
I remember the 2017 multiple FUDS from China banning Bitcoin and the Jamie Dimon btc scam FUDS and FUDS from everywhere to dip the price so they can buy CHEAPER lmao.

You will never get FUDS in a bear market.

Isn't this just blatantly obvious. Wink

Old school Market Manipulation.
52  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Vs Tesla Fight! on: January 04, 2021, 09:52:08 PM
Who do you think will win and keep on pumping more?

Elon Musk's Tesla stock showing no sign of dumping even when stock markets are red today!

Bitcoin too looks like its on the way to the moon like Tesla.

Who can get to the moon 1st  Tongue?

Its like King of Crypto vs King of Stocks. This 2021 year will be the showdown between the best of these 2 asset classes.


Elon Musk is spending most his shareholder capital to fund his space missions. Maybe with his shareholder money he can use it to go to the moon 1st class.

Or whoever dumps 1st is the loser?





53  Economy / Speculation / What if Bitcoin goes off this Institutionalized expected Bull-Run? on: January 04, 2021, 06:26:16 PM
Everybody is expecting btc to hit 100k this year because of the so called, from all that institutional and hedge fund buying of it that caused this bull btc cycle, and of course you will get 30% healthy corrections in this cycle along the way but:

What if there was no black swan event this year and bitcoin instead of a correction, crashes back to 20k or 15k because there's no more institutions left to buy it?

Institutions are smart people smart money so why they buy at any given market price when they can save and get it cheaper in a correction or a crash?

Everybody saying bitcoin supply is running out but high demand is still there but if thats the case then how bitcoin dropped over 10% today when there's clearly supply for this demand causing it to drop over 10%???

Bitcoin dropped around $7k in a day  Shocked

If supply is trickling little drops like a tap then bitcoin price should increase 5k daily right?
54  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Which Altcoin would you Buy now and Why? on: January 03, 2021, 12:32:47 AM
- Kyber Network

- LoopRing

- Icon

- Bat

- Terra

- Ontology

- Iota

- Enjin


These coins are in the top 100 at cheap prices with low max supply, which of these coins has been established for years maintaining its top 100 rankings + which ones haven't been heavily premined + has a real world usage + not a shit/scam coin + has good fundamentals + very active project with regular updates from the coin team.

Which of these coins are new if not established and in what trend? De-Fi?


55  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / XLM Stellar Lumens compared to Ripple XRP? on: December 31, 2020, 11:29:49 AM
Are both coins related in anyway because both coins have crashed?

Is Stellar centralised like Ripple and can it too be in trouble by the SEC regulators?

Or Stellar has no connection to ripple and is a totally different alt to ripple that has no ripple executives on stellar's team however the only thing common between the 2 is price correlation?
56  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / OneCoin & Ripple Questions? on: December 29, 2020, 12:04:57 AM
Was onecoin a centralised coin that was only 1 Dr. Ruja had control over?

Why people still trade onecoin today with onecoin receiving around a $million week from investors? Do people still hope onecoin can make a comeback one day like for example bullish news like finding Dr. Ruja who gets arrested but wins in court by a jury verdict? Theres theories out there that she ran away from the central banks that targeted her.

Ripple is a centralised coin run by 1 Brad Garlinghouse.

Ethereum says its decentralised so why it has Vitalik Buterin at the front of it? Lets say Vitalik gets arrested for example for drug offences, this means that price of Eth should not crash from this news because its decentralised right?

Bitcoin is said to be started by Satoshi Nakamoto but no one knows where he is or whether he is dead or alive meaning Bitcoin cant get arrested or taken to court right like the front runners above?

Why are exchanges delisting ripple when the verdict in court on xrp hasn't been reached yet? Wht dont the exchanges wait for the verdict from jury and then delist if ripple is convicted  Huh

So in conclusion a true decentralised coin has no one at the front of it meaning there should be no price crash risks from scandals, arrests, legal actions correct?



57  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Confused... Dec 2016 start of Bull Market or Dec 2017 end of Bull Market? on: December 17, 2020, 12:20:44 PM
Lot of Investors are confused whether this new Btc bull market were riding in December 2020 relates to the start of bull Dec 2016 where this bull market will continue into next year $100k bitcoin or whether this bull market bubble will be popped ended in a few weeks from 35k crashing to below 10k?

Why it has to be the month December, what significance the month December has for Bitcoin? Isn't December the end of year month where Hedge Funds around the month rebalancing their portfolios and the the month where we need to sell assets to buy Christmas gifts? Also what about Tax implications in Dec end of year?

What months usually tax year starts & ends?

Is December the best month of the year for Btc to start or end at? Why cant it be another month apart from December? Why not middle of summer July?

Lets not forget we had the China 2013 Btc bubble in Dec too Huh

58  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Will we ever get another 7th Jan 2018 Alt Season? on: December 17, 2020, 11:52:40 AM
This is the date when Alts were at their peak with bitcoin dominance being pushed down to all time low 35%.

This was also the date when its a day before when bitcoin bubble popped from the Dec 2017 $20k all time high to losing 75% of its value few weeks later.

Questions are:

- Can we get another similar Alt season bull market when btc is volatility consolidating at new all time highs before the bitcoin bubble gets popped like above? Or is this start of a new bull market for btc where we have to wait till next year or 2022 for another alt season peak when btc is hovering at $100k or whatever new ath it hits?

- Lets take the Benchmark Alt coin Ethereum. The price difference ratio between Eth and Btc is high now like $650 to $23000. In the 2017/18 bull market Eth was $1400 to btc $20k. Are Alts dying and BTC will be king?

- Lastly I remember in 2017/18 Alt season all the Alts were being pumped where people can very rich from this. Will it be a different story for Alts this time coming into this new bull market where only the good fundamentally altcoins will be pumped only and shitcoins this time will stay the same flat dead line?

- Best time to sell Alts when Bitcoin dominance is at its lows? This is the best indicator for selling alts?

 
59  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / OTC Over The Counter BTC Trading? on: December 06, 2020, 12:25:23 AM
Just to confirm big institutions like MicroStrategy, Paypal etc. are buying 1000's of Bitcoins not off exchanges like Coinbase where the small retail investors go, but they buy over OTC?

How are they buying 1000s of BTC when there is a shortage in BTC everyone claiming?

Just to confirm OTC trading does not affect or move the market price no matter how big the transaction is?

Who are the whales that have 1000s of BTC dumping selling it on the OTC desk? Why these whales don't have faith that BTC will go higher than 20k?



60  Economy / Economics / Deflation - Inflation - Hyper Inflation & Interest Rates Questions? on: November 29, 2020, 12:24:18 AM
Hello,

Central Banks monetary policy is to meet inflation rate of lets say 2-3% set by Government fiscal policy right?

Why governments want prices of all the goods and services we pay for to be increased 2-3% yearly in a compounding way?

Why cant inflation be at 0% where prices of goods/services are stable constant throughout time? For this to happen central banks got to stop printing money right?


What is deflation, is it below the above mentioned target rate of 2-3% or below 0% inflation? Is there such thing as negative inflation or is just known as deflation?


Central banks get their statistics/prices of good/services data from past data history right in like a price index of what we pay for stuff to see how high inflation is now? How is this consumer price index is weighted?

The question is do the central banks get this data from essential good/services like food, drink, energy, healthcare, education that we need to survive on or from non essential good/services like holidays, tv's, phones, blenders, PlayStations, cars etc.?

Most non essential goods are from china which is cheap anyway so do central banks derive their current inflation figures from this non essential data that gives a false low below target inflation reading?

Lets look at the essential food items that everybody buys to survive on like bread/milk/eggs etc., since the 2008 crash has these prices steadily gone up to all time high prices now? If that is the case then we can rule out and say there's no deflation right?

Central banks have been printing so much money this year so how do they claim current inflation is below target? Doesn't make any sense.

Okay questions on interest rates:

- Looking at past charts high inflation is correlated high interest rates? Central banks say high interest rates are a sign of a good economy however why is there high inflation in a good economy when central banks don't print a lot of money in this correlated times? In this time there's less debt, savers get rewarded so what causes high inflation to make prices to sky high in this correlated time?

- Central banks say low interest rates are signs of a bad economy and they lower interest rates to get everybody borrowing cheap money at low rates to buy things that suppose to stimulate the economy higher so how this low interest rates is correlated to low inflation rates were having now when central banks are printing a lot of money in this correlated times? In this time theres more debt, debtors get rewarded so what causes low inflation to stop prices going sky high in this correlated time?

- Will low interest rates cause real estate property prices to continue going higher because it attracts a lot of buyers to cheap mortgages at low rates that increases demand pushing prices up and vice versa when interest rates rise? Real estate was cheap back in the 80's 90's but interest rates were high back then at like 15-19% not like 2-3% were getting today.

- If interest rates go negative then that means the borrower gets paid interest right?

- Is it possible to get times that makes economic sense where there is high interest & low inflation correlated and also low interest & high inflation correlated or does it always has to be not making sense that is high interest=high inflation and also low interest = low inflation cycles that we always go through?
