some more cosmetic features :
no deposit pending notification, only when it is confirmed
no info about min deposit figures in FAQ or deposit tab, if the site accepts any min deposits-mention it
investment tab should be more informative,maybe its own FAQ or popup info
to return to playing dice you have to click on the site's logo, a separate link with Play dice or similar is a must

New title(rank) introduced by Jet Cash called spambie. Thanks to JC for discover new title. Really it's not fun, I realized the title and just want introduce to all. Recently so many accusation or complain regarding new merit system. But if you visit their profile you will realized that they are spambies instead of call newbie. Most of them are one line spammer and they are complaining about merit and meriting post of high ranked account. So I think it's really appropriate title (spambie) for them. Problem is they just want earn merit, never try to change posting behaviour. We are every one was newbie here. But we try to learn first then try to contribute something. Unfortunately current situation is different. People's just join for earn from here, especially bounty. I know it's not wrong. But once they see they need merit to be rank up than they start complain which is not fair I think. So called them spambies isn't wrong (IMO).

Those people's are just made complain instead of contribute something really they are spambie. Few people's are joined less then week and they are complaining about merit and meriting legendary. Actually they are not aware about all of rank and required. They just like to make complain.

you can award this rank to the ones who were demoted from Jr. rank to Newbie
some manage to go several hundreds posts without a single one that can be merited   Shocked
these are the real spambees
and all the drama and crushed dreams https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5035544

Site has been down for a couple of days. Will it be down forever? Are player funds lost?

there are several  topics popping up discussing whever its an exit scam
or just poor and unprofessional handling of a force majuere situation like DDOS or anything else
admins or support stuff should have announced in this topic what was the reason behind the site being down
in any case, I hope they resolve their issues and come back , but personally, I would never bet there even if they do

Why don't people understand that we have enough dice sites in this world and no one wants to play at yours until you are already highly trusted  on the forum / on the internet or you are running some really great promotions and distributing away free money for the people to play.

No offence but dice sites are a thing of past and people are sick of them.

the more sites we have the better
it is competition that drives the progress and makes admins do something to improve their creations

uhm... I want to play there, even if it is not trusted yet Smiley - just to try it out

and dice sites are the most profitable and the most simple and common game in cryptocommunity
look at all the wheel,keno,majong etc. unique games that have no customers
what attracts players in a dice site? simplicity and speed, you can get a result in a second and it will be provably fair ,too
so no, people are not sick of them

Why this site no wants be added to dicebot?.

because owner is afraid of dicebot Cheesy

and are not so clever, he are thinking that from web autobet, are possible do all what you can do from bot Cheesy

haha owners never afraid of bots, bots bring profit to sites
but they are not cheap, it costs alot to connect it to a site
Seujuntles bot costs 1 btc+ if I'm not mistaken ,
so maybe the owner does not see it neccessary to spend money on a bot since the autobet functionality is plenty sufficient

not sure about trusted but I know one decent site:
https://fantasyfactor.com/ I cannot deposit due to restrictions ,but it looks very good, maybe you can try it out
as for pure non token fantasy sport sites I have yet to find one that doesn't use tokens of sorts
https://www.cryptofantasysports.com/   must be the most popular one, but they use NLC2 coins
https://www.digitalfantasysports.com/  uses DFS tokens  same as https://fanlucci.com/   etc. etc.

why we must study Economics at University?
because the society needs to brainwash their populace and project the skewed picture of the world
especially in one of the most important part of our lives- economy
the liberal paradygm has proven not to be a working model, massive and repeated crises+lower life standards for the majority of the people around the globe are the best proofs
Economics is there to teach you that there are advanced,democratic states and economies and the developping countries , aka undevelopped aka the ones that can be
robbed through Central banks system, gold fixing and dollar system
the resources though are finite and the Earth cannot sustain this anymore
8  Other / Meta / Re: Demoted from Jr. Member to Newbie? Here is the story on: September 22, 2018, 07:35:19 PM
You might be little surprised if you suddenly saw your position as a NewBie , but you were a Jr. Member a few days ago.  According , to the new rule at least one merit is essential to upgrade to Jr. Member from Newbie. This rule is implemented to filter the garbage post and encourage and motivate to  people who really word hard to contribute this community.


Experts suggests getting one merit is not that very difficult , however those who have been working with bounties can talk to bounty managers and get their payment for recent work.

Good luck for everyone.

to be brutally honest with you, having skimmed through your posts
you are a good example why this rule has been introduced: 90% of your posts are oneliners without any substance or info in them
while it is very easy to get one merit you literally haven't got a single post to be awarded for
and yes I really tried to find one to maybe, just maybe help you on your way back to Jr.
but nah , nothing even close to deserve to be merited
you even managed to post this in a wrong section
maybe instead of complaining you should start and put more effort into posting?
9  Economy / Economics / Re: The HODL strategy is not actual on: September 22, 2018, 07:30:06 PM
come on HODL strategy is always is and will always be actual
there are two basic strategies anyways:
1. buy cheap sell at a higher price
2. short
HODL strategy is "not actual" just because bitcoin is not making ridiculously high price jumps
but this could change any time,statistically, end of the year is the time for this
so do not listen to nay sayers and keep your coins

hate when blockchain is treated like a multitool for all purposes
while its a great technology, it cannot be used to "substitute" x y z or "save markets" or countries etc.
too many companies are putting Blockchain in its name for no reson and this is getting annoying
and they do it to increase their stock price,to create additional hype and so on: https://qz.com/1175701/putting-bitcoin-or-blockchain-in-a-company-name-is-sometimes-enough-for-a-pop-on-the-stock-market/

Here's another, updated, article on the subject:

https://www.coindesk.com/the-latest-bitcoin-bug-was-so-bad-developers-kept-its-full-details-a-secret/

What I can't understand is that why do they keep saying "the bug could have been exploited to print unlimited bitcoin" while in fact, even if that happened all those "fake Bitcoins" would be destroyed and thus no harm would be done? What am I missing here?

don't think you are missing anything, the fake bitcoins would have never been accepted by the chain
coindol resorts to digging up some minor things that happened in 2016 and were fixed promptly and making a mountain out of a molehill
they sound bitcoin.comish in this article, maybe there was a "paid request" for the article to be published?
13  Economy / Gambling / Re: ★★★ Bitcoin Video Casino ★★★ - ||| Over 500 BTC in Progressive Jackpots! ||| on: September 22, 2018, 11:58:50 AM
Minimum bet is 0.0001 BTC
Maximum bet is 1 BTC
Blackjack pays 3:2
Insurance pays 2:1
Number of decks is 5
Number of allowed splits is 3
Dealer does not hit on soft 17
Can double after split
Can not hit split aces
Can resplit aces
Can double on first two
Dealer does not peek


Is it normal with these rules that you  lose both bets if you

- double down against a 10-j-q-k and the dealer has a hidden ace (blackjack)
- split aces and get 21 on one or both, but the dealer has a hidden blackjack?

perfectly normal
usually dealer's blackjack beats any of the player's hands except for blackjack which is a push usually
this casino's rules are pretty common, no gimmicks ,don't know why are you so surprised


I understand that players hands lose against blackjack.  However, where I have played, if you double down and the dealer shows blackjack (not an ace up, but a 10-face) and it's a blackjack, you lose the initial bet and get the double down bet back (since there is no peek in this game)





I will refer you to the Blackjack rules:
https://wizardofodds.com/games/blackjack/basics/#toc-Rules
https://www.blackjackincolor.com/  - one of the best resources, by the way
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackjack

nice looking site  cant wait to try it out

Thanks for trying it out  Cool

tried it out more extensively
recieved free 6000 satoshis by admin, the chunk error seems to be fixed, by the way
min bet is set to 1 satoshi so you can test the autobet tab without a problem now
it does throttle on low bets but autobet runs smoothly, only stopped once in 2 hours or so and had to refresh the page for it to continue
other than that- looks and feels ok, with more polishing required,of course
if admin keeps working on his site and gains enough playersbase and trust, this could be another decent dice site to gamble at
15  Economy / Gambling / Re: Investing in Gambling Sites on: September 21, 2018, 04:53:09 PM
As with all investing there are always risks. However since gambling sites in general have a house edge and a "greed and fear" factor you will generally always come out ahead and seems like a good risk/reward.

However, you need to keep in mind that there are times where its not profitable especially if you are just entering a new position. There can be a period where your balance is in the red and you will need to wait it out until it turns profitable.

In my opinion, these investments are not "get rich quick" you will need to be very patient and hold on to your position for a very long time if you want to see some nice gains.

cannot agree more:
anything gambling related is risky, but it is good to have math on your side for a change  Grin
speaking of investments, of course, in addition to the house edge figures you will also have suboptimal plays from many many gamblers
and this what makes casinos prosper,not only the house edge
definitely a not "get rich scheme" , you will have to be patient and keep your investment for some time and not to be tempted to divest
some people see red figures and divest and leave the site, when the correct course of action would be wait,wait and wait
I say never invest for less than  a month and do not bother with amounts lower than 0.02 btc the profit will not be really worth it

there is a fresh dice site with a lower than usual house edge: https://dice-bet.com/
their topic: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5032129.0
I suggested the owner to contact you to be added to the list of "young and brave upcoming sites" Smiley
but thought I would post it here too, just in case
it looks decent , proof of funds + provably fair ,testing it at the moment

requested your 6000 satoshi  promotion bonus so I can test the site
one thing -the weird loading  chunk 2  error that pops up every time you click something
maybe coders have to work on it, I use FF latest
the site is better than I thought just glancing through it, has decent number of features, security , three different currencies
you do need players though and investors
a piece of advice-contact Hhampuz so he includes your site here : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4832500.0
may bring you additional clientelle
and fix/introduce affiliate system, this should give enough incentitive so people can start promoting it on their own

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin should NOT determine the market on: September 21, 2018, 12:24:52 PM
the same question as are money harder to acquire now?
with bitcoin it is the same story, it is money and if bitcoin is worth more  it will be harder to get as much as you used to get
for example: 2009 there were faucets dishing out 1+ bitcoins per claim, I myself mined around 0.25 bitcoins a day in 2011 on a simple GPU
now faucets like freebitoin give whooping 30 satoshis per claim and obviously you get peanuts when you mine bitcoin on your gpu aka nothing
at the moment bitcoin is tied to fiat prices and my hope is that with more adoption we will start asking
and how many satoshis is dollar today, not the other way around

India and bitcoin regulation is a neverending story, same as in Russia
whenever I read an article about India or Russia in regards to cryptoregulations I just shrug-ah they are at it again
I bet even if it is adjourned until tomorrow and as the article says it is not only RBI-Bitcoin case is adjourned but every case
we won't see the end of it come tomorrow, this will be postponed with no definite decision pro or con
I hope I'm mistaken and India becomes yet another country to make bitcoin legal ,but it is very unlikely
