The project looks interesting from what I have read so far... the advisory team is really solid. Though, having just discover it this morning having have the time to get and read the whitepaper, but will get on the list so I can have access to the whitepaper. I also like that you can be able to discuss and get response from the core team. Great impression!

Go for it. Using a mobile wallet is fine, as long as you don't put all your investments in it. Only use mobile wallets as a "hot wallet", whereas the funds in there are the funds you use when you're planning on transacting with bitcoin, for convenience. Personally I'd leave a maximum amount of $100 on my hot wallet.

Thanks, I believe that's indeed the way to go, at least to be on a safer side.
26  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Earn merit by telling us about the dangers in using 3rd party wallets. on: June 24, 2018, 04:23:10 PM
Firstly, thanks for this thread, apart from the opportunity to earn merit. I believe this kind of thread will help get many newbies informed and also serve as a friendly reminder to experienced members. I will not waste time on definition because I believe the previous posters combined have done justice to that.

However, I think there's another important danger to using third party wallets that have not been mentioned yet, which is that; using third party wallets puts you and your coins at the mercy of the developer(s), especially if it's not an open source project with a large active and well motivated community.

I didn't realise how crucial this can be until the recent issue that happened where a developer threatened to split the Zcash Network if he wasn't paid in return for his development efforts.

According to CoinDesk; D. Jane Mercer, the sole maintainer of the Windows Zcash wallet software, said he was going to cease development of the clients and release a zcash competitor "rebranded as another coin," if he didn't get further funding for his work. And, I think the community had to contribute for him, to sort of bribe him before the issue was resolved. Full story at https://www.coindesk.com/zcash-pays-off-angry-developer-avoid-blockchain-split/

In this case D. Jane Mercer single-handedly made a decision which put the status of clients coins, those who have trusted their wallets to his wallet software at a big risk, because in such cases, the situation could have gone the other way which might have got messy, and I'm sure the developer knew his power lies in his uses base, so he probably might have found a way to hold his use base hostage to achieve his aim (just my personal opinion though).

So, to add to all the the previous posters have said, if you must use a third party wallet always make sure that "in addition to other things" it's an open source project, possibly maintained by a community of developers that well motivated.

 I have recent been considering using my wallet on my mobile phone because of mobility and portability. Thanks for the friendly reminder, this is indeed a crucial issue to be mindful of.

Why are so many people losing so much money in the coinage, or are they going to raise money to do it on it? It is clear that in this high-yielding and high-risk market, it is highly addictive. It's not just games and X products that can be addictive. It's also very addictive, like investing in coinage. A lot of people, whether they win money or lose money on this investment, have the mentality that they want to win more when they win, when they lose money, they want to win back. And the moment is staring at the dish, the tea is not thinking. Of course, there will be such a person on the coin, and it is easy to be addicted to it under the temptation of huge profits. Such people have not strong inner control, and many times are just for the thrill of winning money, but people with this mentality are generally the ones who lose money. So, in any case, be rational and control yourself?

Self control in a very important trait, also it's very important to have an aim, develop a strategy and stick to what's working for you.
29  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Waiting for Airdrops? Don't always open Myetherwallet !!!!!! Tipp !!!!!! on: June 10, 2018, 04:20:13 AM
so you can see every day or every hour if your Airdrops have already arrived without opening your Origianl MYETHERWALLET. that is much safer.

Finally I found the best way to be informed about airdrops that have been sent to your wallet. This method does not even require opening etherscan over and over again:

1. Go to http://etherscan.io/ and type in your address
2. On the top of the page there is a button with "Add To Watchlist" written on it.
3. Log in to your account or create a new one
4. Click on "Email notification" then hit continue.
5. You should see a list of your watched addresses, click "Edit", then check the box before "Also Track ERC20 Token Transfers (click to Enable)" and before "Notify on Incoming (Receive) Txns Only" (or witch one you prefer).
6. Congrats, you will be notified every time there is an ERC20 movement on your wallet.

Thanks for that, just tried it, let see how it goes.

I'm participating bounty programmes from 4 months now. I have collected some amount money from the bounty. But I yet to invest any of money for the trading. I decided to invest some money. Can someone tell me how much money do I invest for the first trading? and what are the good coins should I buy now?


Just to add, if you mean day trading, it requires a lot of knowledge and skill, if you are a newbie you'll need to read and learn a lot, so you can develop the knowledge to DYOR, else you end up losing a larger % of you investment.
31  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Will you guys help me to award merits please. on: May 18, 2018, 05:50:50 PM
Actually you can't really write a guide on how to get merits, as there is considerable disparity between awarders of merit. For example, some give merit to posters who create infographics, and I put them on ignore if they embed them in threads, rather than linking to them.

It would be far easier to write a guide on how to avoid becoming blocked from the merit system.

Hmm I see, which probably answers the reason why there's no sticky post in that line.

I get the point,  now.
32  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Newbie on: May 18, 2018, 05:38:02 PM
How to participate in forum discussion?

I think on of the best advise is that you make the forum search button you best friend, and learn to use it frequently

I think it is none of your business. So mind your business, and don't change the intent of my post, it's for my effectiveness here.

And that a bit of tolerance, will also be needed because you'll be relating with a whole lot of people with different, opinion, background  and experience from yours.
33  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Will you guys help me to award merits please. on: May 18, 2018, 05:16:19 PM
There are three obvious things you can do. One is to stop starting useless spam mega-threads like the one that has just started with the title ' Crypto is here to stay ' What a stupid thread for an apparently new member to start. We all know the answer, and there is no sensible reply that anyone with any exposure to crypto-currencies can make in this forum. I put the OP straight onto ignore, and that means I won't see any posts in that thread, but it will take up space in the index.

As a newbie myself, I honestly don't envy the troubles you Sr. Members have to go through in awarding well deserved merits.
I'm beginning to feel like many newbies know how to search to get answers to the questions they start threads on, however they just go ahead and open thread all the same to increase their activities. For example; you can almost guess right that there's going to be a new thread every few days in this board asking about how to get merits, in-spite of the enormous guides already available. Personally, I have responded to a few that I begin to think it might be no use as the effort could be deploy to other use.

If I already feel like this as a newbie myself, I can somewhat relate with how difficult it must be to award merits, something that many newbie don't realise but keep complaining that the merit system is a barrier.

Btw, I've been thinking; considering the amount of new threads started in this board every few days on how to get merits, there should at least be a sticky post with guides on how to earn merits, it could just aggregate some useful guides already contributed by forum members, personally I find TMAN's guides helpful.
34  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Newbies' sadness on: May 17, 2018, 03:34:06 PM
It's simply because most junior members and newbies don't know shit and are here only for the bounties and nothing else. The only people that are complaining "sr members arent noticing our posts bla bla" are the ones who are complaining only because their posts are not good enough for merits.

I can't but I agree with this.

As a newbie myself and for the short time I've been active here, I've followed bit of newbie posts and I can say a number of them are uninteresting even to me as a newbie.

I keep wondering, why is the recurrent complain about the ranking system, when in actual fact you don't even need any merit to get to a Jr. member; which allows you to participate in bounties, if that's your primary aim. But no! Newbies rather wants to become a Sr. Members overnight just for higher stakes. We have to understand that anything that'll last long successfully, don't come by accident. It takes time, effort, dedication and thorough planning.

For me, I'd say there are a whole lot of Sr. Members here who take notice of newbies posts and are willing to support newbies that they recognize to be showing potentials.

Well, at least that's been my own experience.

35  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: I'm a Newbie, how soon can I start participating in Airdrop/Bounty? on: May 17, 2018, 02:55:15 PM
I am a Newbie in this highly esteemed forum, I want to know how soon I can start participating in Airdrops/Bounties?

That is a subjective question that depends majorly on you; how fast you can learn, how much time you can spare, how diligent do you think you can be.
Maybe a better question would have been "what does it take for you to be able to participate in bounties", when you understand what it takes, you determine how long it will take you.

Btw, bounties is the one with higher requirements, airdrops are daily easy if you have a Facebook account with 500 friends above and/or a twitter account with 500 followers and above,

37  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: [SAFETY] - Protect yourself from scammers in Telegram channels on: May 17, 2018, 12:43:10 AM
B) Fake channels:

An example: true channel AsuraCoin, fake channel AsuraCoins. Trust only the links on the official page, you may end up scammed and it is sad to see users asking for their tokens after sending ether to a hacker.

This very true...and a crucial thing to watch out for, I have seen it played about almost every telegram group and channels I have joined, most especially as I usually copied the ID and search it in the telegram clients' search box.

Btw, scammers most often played on the ignorance and greed of people. If you are going to do anything, please take some time and effort to educate yourself deeper about it, also watch your greed; if it look too good to be true it's probably is.
38  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: THINGS TO REMEMBER BEFORE STARTING on: May 16, 2018, 10:41:34 PM
Also, do not be on this forum just for signature campaigns. Try trading also. I have a friend who  is also a newbie and so frustrated on not getting merits and not getting rank up. As we all know that higher ranks give higher profits on a campaign. Yes its hard to rank up in the new system and its almost impossible for us newbies but always remember that ranks doesnt define what knowledge you have now.

As newbies, we should understand that many of the early adopters on this forum didn't join because of bounties and many of them still have the passion for which they join the forum at heart, so it will be unfair to allow the purpose of the forum be defeated because of raking higher only just to participate in bounties.

So, we have to change our mindset on the merit system, from seeing it as a total barrier to seeing it as a challenge to improve ourselves, because when newbies develop deeper knowledge, skills and understanding of bitcoins and crypto; raking higher will be like child play; I believe if you look on the longterm and patiently do the hardwork first, the money will follow.

Ranking higher might not only be good for bounties, there were days when there were no bounties and a day might come when bounties will be no more, just like there was a time when there were no merits, a day might come when something else "maybe stricter" might replace the merits system, will we transfer our complaints to the new system then, or just learn to adapt?
39  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: How do I avoid phising site? on: May 16, 2018, 10:02:50 PM
Pls am new hear I need useful advice on how to avoid phising sites

Leave your greed outside your email inbox/account; if you see an email/offer that sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Always know the true status of your account and investment, don't let a scammer be the one to tell you the status of your account, when you see an email/message saying your account has been deactivated, compromised or what have you with a click here link". Just delete it, most of the time they are phising. If you must visit the site, open your browser and manually enter the site url or open it from your bookmark (you need to make it an habit to bookmark the correct url of the site where you have account or investment)

And very importantly, make Google your friend, when you see a suspected email/offer run it by Google and see what Google have to say about it
