1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Has AltCoins thought you a hard time lesson before? on: Today at 01:28:45 PM
Altcoins had a tough time getting started with entering the crypto world. At that time there was very little knowledge of market relations and it was not possible to verify which coins were correct. Altcoins all look good at the beginning after investing it is understood that the scam coins do not rise to the top. Currently there are many good altcoins in the market although they are high risk and give good returns if you keep them for a long time.

Right. Back in the day, Altcoins were a wild ride with not much clarity on what's legit. Scams were everywhere. Now there are some good ones but yeah it's a risky game. Holding for the long haul might pay off but you gotta tread carefully

Yeah ever since I learned that looking sharp and putting effort into how you present yourself whether in person or online is like investing in your own brand. It's all about creating opportunities and good vibes whether you're meeting people or hanging out in forums. Just be yourself, but make it the best version
3  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Corporate ownership against inequality on: Today at 01:07:17 PM
Well big companies have the upper hand with their size but dealing with freeloaders is a headache. I get your crypto-communes idea for voting but when it comes to giant corporations, it's not as straightforward. It's like why can't shareholders in a big company like General Motors get the lowdown from their elected managers? It's a puzzle
4  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Trading Or Investing which one is better to focus on right now? on: Today at 01:00:10 PM
If you invest, your losses will be less and your chances will be less. You will still have some of your capital or your original token.  Like gaming, this is actually the case in our society.  It has come to Hemant that they earn two rupees by trading for some time and think they are big traders but actually they themselves could not be successful because they lost a lot in the beginning.  In fact, we should know or understand the training or investment in the case of coming at a time and then being able to fit.  Because if you invest in a good project because you think a good project has come, let's talk about bitcoin, if you buy bitcoin or keep it with bitcoin, you will have it in the future.  You have 99% chance of profit if you sell at high price but 80% chance of loss if you train the training words.

Yeah. Putting your money in well-known projects like Bitcoin for the long haul is generally safer than constantly trading. Established assets like Bitcoin have a track record of growing over time, offering a better chance of making money if you hold onto them but trying to play the market with frequent trades is riskier. It requires a good understanding of market trends and comes with the unpredictability of short-term price changes. Going for a chill, long-term investment approach in solid projects is often a more secure bet while short-term trading can be riskier and might lead to losses due to market ups and downs

The tough life for an average Nigerian comes from a mix of economic problems, weak state support, limited services, widespread insecurity and poor infrastructure. It's the combo of these things making life challenging for many
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: DCA: the power of little beginning on: Today at 12:45:11 PM
I get your Bitcoin journey with Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA). Smart move! DCA is like the chill strategy like no stressing over market timing and just steady vibes and big props for not just riding high times but embracing the lows too because that's where the real Bitcoin bargains are, right?
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Just a friendly Bitcoin friend reminder - High price = more scams on: Today at 12:40:39 PM
If you are investing such a high amount, then itís obvious that you need to be extra careful to manage the investments. Always double check the emails before clicking on any links. Move your coins to hardware or offline wallets rather than storing in exchanges and at last donít invest in ponzi schemes which provides multiplication of investment due to the rise in price of the coins. You just need to open your eyes and observe with full determination, in this manner only you can be saved from scams.

Right. If you're throwing big bucks into the game, be extra cautious. Ditch storing everything on exchanges and  go for hardware or offline wallets for extra safety like steer clear of those shady schemes promising crazy returns because they're usually trouble. Cheers to smart investing
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is the newly minted USDT, a driving force to surge of BTC ? on: Today at 12:36:09 PM
While I'm not a professional trader or financial advisor, I personally think that Bitcoin will break the previous ATH. My bias is that, there are many people that are longing it because they feel that the price will break previous ATH and one fact about trading is that when many traders are after a particular zone, there is a high chance that it would become a self fulfilling prophecy. Right when BTC broke through $60K, I knew it was coming for the ATH.

And if you're following the history, you would know that this time! It's a lot different. There's an ETF will over $17B in Bitcoin and big people ballers like Michael Saylor are all balls deep including institutions. How can we not be bullish?

Makes sense. The whole many traders eyeing a zone thing often turns into a self-fulfilling prophecy. I mean when BTC busted through $60K, it felt like the ATH was just around the corner. Now with over $17B in a Bitcoin ETF and big names like Michael Saylor going all-in, it's hard not to catch the bullish wave. The game has changed and with institutions diving in, the excitement is through the roof
9  Economy / Economics / Re: BTC ATH in local currency on: March 04, 2024, 01:04:06 PM
As crazy as the difference in amount between these local currencies of some countries and the dollar it is becoming an increasingly necessary evil  for citizens of these countries to whom their currency is repleting in value by the hit of inflation  to find a hedge to keep value on with their money by either holding it in dollar or investing in bitcoin which in the long run create extra value for them.
And I think the falling value of the currencies of these countries has also become one of the propeller drive among youths of these countries particularly of the African continent to increasingly adopt bitcoin because of the profit it profers to it long term holders.

People in countries dealing with crazy inflation are kinda forced to play a money-saving game. They stash their cash in dollars or even better Bitcoin. It's like a survival tactic to keep their money from losing value. It's not just about making money because it's a rebellion against traditional currencies going down the drain. Bitcoin is like their superhero, promising better days for those who HODL. It's a wild ride and everyone's trying to secure their bag in the crypto world
10  Economy / Economics / Re: Reckless financial decision ? on: March 04, 2024, 01:00:54 PM
Rejecting an offer that prompts you to avoid what makes you happy is not a harsh decision to me; it's obviously for the individual's personal reasons, like having peace of mind and doing what they are happy with. 

If already I have enough wealth and riches that I am satisfied with and I don't really need any offers that discomfort me, I don't mind rejecting such offers without minding the price that comes along with them. 

It's only someone who doesn't have any further options who can settle for anyone they manage to find. Those who believe that they will definitely find more opportunities will always be picky about the kind of offers they accept. 

Some years ago, while I was still working at a place, my boss said I didn't have to wear any form of jewelry to work. There were no chains, no rings, and some other restrictions that were just so unfavorable to me, but I had no options unless I accepted and started the job. 

Right. If you're financially comfortable and content, rejecting offers that don't align with your happiness is a reasonable choice. Having the luxury to be selective is a privilege. Situations like your past job where compromises were necessary for employment highlight the challenges some face when choices are limited. Everyone's approach to such decisions is shaped by their unique circumstances and priorities
11  Economy / Economics / Re: Saving don't make wealth on: March 04, 2024, 12:57:18 PM
It makes sense. Saving money is cool but is where the magic happens. You can have both. Putting your cash in things like stocks, real estate or even Bitcoin can make your money grow way better than it would in a regular savings account. Sure Bitcoin can be a bit wild but it's part of the game. Diversifying your investments around is like playing it smart. It helps you ride out the ups and downs
12  Economy / Economics / Re: Some people acts stranded and in need of the ways for breakthrough but not ready on: March 04, 2024, 12:54:19 PM
It's tricky because investments can be a rollercoaster. You're smart not to spill your income source just yet. People often envy success but bail when it gets tough. Keep the convo open, explaining the risks and rewards. Your friend might not jump in now but planting the seed could grow into something later. Balancing excitement and reality is the name of the game. You're handling it well, letting him know success isn't all rainbows and unicorns
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Sensitivities of Bitcoin secret hunters. on: March 04, 2024, 12:40:02 PM
Keeping our crypto safe is a big deal and locking down your wallet with encryption and secret folders is like having an extra set of eyes on it. The story with your cousin is a reminder to stay on your toes even with family. Keeping your Bitcoin stuff under wraps helps dodge any unnecessary drama or nosy questions and a lowkey way that they should get their hands off of your business haha Keep it private and you're less likely to end up in awkward situations
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: New US Ruling deems most altcoins, if not all are securities on: March 04, 2024, 12:34:38 PM
This has been dragging on for years and will keep dragging on for many more years. Remember the XRP lawsuit which started a few years back and it led to xrp getting delisted on many exchanges?

If this passes then what the coinbase pairs be? I can see Bitcoin, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and maybe Dogecoin. Any other token out there which had some type of IPO at one point is considered a security. They needed to make the laws regarding this more clear about 5 years ago.

Yeah these legal battles in crypto seem never ending. If the SEC ruling sticks, exchanges might stick to safer bets and anything that looks like an IPO could be in trouble. They really should've sorted out these rules ages ago to avoid all this confusion
15  Economy / Speculation / Re: When is next significant correction coming? on: March 04, 2024, 12:29:33 PM
Well cryptocurrency markets are pretty wild and nailing down when Bitcoin will correct itself is like trying to catch lightning in a bottle. Instead of stressing about perfect timing, think about spreading your investments around. Diversifying helps you ride out the ups and downs, making your portfolio more robust. It's like having a financial safety net when the crypto rollercoaster takes unexpected turns
16  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Lottery ticket sports bets on: March 04, 2024, 12:27:40 PM
Making big multibets with loads of matches seems exciting especially with the potential for massive payouts. Just imagine combining 25 matches with decent odds and the multiplier skyrockets. But let's be real, predicting the outcomes for all those matches is like rolling the dice. It's more luck than strategy. Sure, you can throw in just 5 cents but don't forget the thrill comes with a big risk of losing it all. It's a fun gamble but play it smart and keep it light
17  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Which player are you? on: March 04, 2024, 12:24:54 PM
I prefer to know on the spot whether I have won or not. I've done some sports betting at times but it's not my thing. To wait for the result I prefer to play the lottery and hope to win millions. And if I had to play sports betting regularly I would try to do it seriously, studying beforehand and managing a bankroll to try to obtain profitability in the long term.

Right. Lotteries give that instant win or lose buzz, hoping for a jackpot. But if you dive into sports betting seriously, it's like a game of strategy. You haveto  study teams, players and manage your cash smartly just to be comfortavle that youll win haha It's more about calculated moves than just crossing your fingers for luck
18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Investing in casinos: Still a thing? on: March 02, 2024, 11:12:15 PM
It used to be the hottest topic around 4 or 5 years ago. There are many casinos who offered people to invest in their bankroll. There are days when your investment drops when a whale beats the hell out of the casino, and there are times when you simply create money just because almost everyone had a bad day. It's very volatile, and I would even go so far as to say that it's as volatile as cryptocurrency's price movements. I don't know if there are still some casinos that offer investing on their bankrolls directly without going through a token that they own, but if there is, I'm pretty sure it's a direct invite and not public access anymore.

Tokens from casinos seem to be the easiest way for you to invest in their bankroll, but those tokens are being traded too so you're basically just 'funding' them and the movement of your investments depend on a separate market and not necessarily what happens inside the casino.

Oh right. Investing in casino bankrolls can happen in two ways either you're directly putting money into the casino's ups and downs or you're dealing with tokens that have a life of their own. In the past, direct investment was more common but now it might need a VIP invite. With tokens, it's like you're playing in two markets  and its the casino's wins and the token trading scene. Both have their quirks but no matter what diving into this world needs some serious research and a good grasp of the risks involved. Keep it real and watch out for the wild ride
19  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: your perception about gambling on: March 02, 2024, 11:09:46 PM
We all know the image: the "good-for-nothing shut-in" stereotype. But here's the thing, painting everyone who gambles with that same brush is unfair and unhelpful. Sure, gambling can be risky, and addiction is a real concern. But it's not always a one-way street to rock bottom. Just like anything in life, it's about doing it responsibly. Instead of whining about how people perceive gamblers, what if we focused on actually changing the way we gamble? Be smart, not stupid, Set limits, don't chase losses, and prioritize your well-being.

Remember, changing a perception takes more than just complaining. It's about individuals taking responsibility and building a supportive environment. By doing that, we can create a space where gambling doesn't have to be a dark alley, but rather a leisure activity enjoyed responsibly.

Makes sense. Instead of just griping about how people see gambling, better to do a hands-on approach. It's about encouraging folks to be smart like set limits, avoid chasing losses and look out for themselves. Try to take personal responsibility and creating a chill environment because youre right that gambling doesn't have to be seen as this dark, risky thing. It can be more like a fun pastime as long as it's done responsibly
20  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Is it time now to use Premium VPN when playing in the casino? on: March 02, 2024, 11:06:52 PM
So a premium VPN with a dedicated IP is like having your personal online identity right? It's a way to make sure you and your friends using the same casino don't accidentally trigger alarms for multiple accounts from one IP. It's kind of like having your own VIP entrance to the online casino world, avoiding any hassle or confusion that might arise from sharing the same virtual space with your buddiesso I think it may great to hve one
