Brainboss, if there is anything I can do to help, let me know please.

We (Nigerian community) haven't taken a decision yet, information reaching me is that he has already been buried but I haven't confirmed this from family members as all attempts to reach them have been unsuccessful. Initially I would had love a representative to attend the burial but that won't be possible so the only thing we can do now is to show the family he (Becky666) had another family In us.

We'll try to assist the family financially with anything we have, he was a married man with a kid (I know of a daughter) and information reaching me is the wife is pregnant. If you'll be interested in this, I can keep you updated via pm as all information will be shared on our local thread.

For now we're still discussing on what to be done immediately we make a collective decision, I'll update you but first lets try to reach the family to know how things are going. Thank you

.If Dogecoin has been capable of taking the fourth spot of top cryptocurrencies, Ethereum might be capable of shortly overtaking Bitcoin's market cap this year.

Lets be honest, the buzz around Ethereum in a slowly dieing off and that attention is been shifted to bitcoin and other altcoins. We have blockchain that are superior to whatever Ethereum claims it's doing (no disrespect) but with time ethereum might not received much privileges as it currently does.

We have new energetic projects all doing what Ethereum does effortlessly with more productively. The gas fees is taking utilities and liquidity out of the Ethereum market. Everyday we're seeing project moving from Ethereum to other promising blockchain.

Isn't that enough reason to rethink your thoughts?.

Becky666 might haven't been known by many but with the few he had some relationship with I tell you, they all have good things to say about him and not just because he's dead but fir his personality. I personally had a relationship with him outside the forum although we got to know each other from the forum.

He's going to be missed, I remember all his advice and admiration and also his desire to achieve greater heights on the forum by constantly improving on his posting style theb the illness came and slowed him down.

Death took him too soon, he struggled with illness and it was obvious he wasn't doing ok as he got dropped from a campaign he enrolled in due to not been active managed by Hhampuz. I wasn't ready for such news of his departure when I receive it because this is someone that I had personal relationship with although we don't know each other physically and haven't met before.

May his soul RIP.

If any crypto will overtake bitcoin by market cap, then that coin will be ETH for sure, as we can see right now ETH has half of the Bitcoin market capitalization, and it has been growing fast in the past months. I don't feel it's ready to overtake the market but looks like it's on the way to do it.

Ethereum don't have what it takes to overtake bitcoin in terms of market capitalization, we have been hearing this over the years yet anytime Ethereum comes close, Bitcoin gives more reason to kill that dream of been the most valued project in terms of market capitalization.

If with all the Crowdfunding and DeFi hype, ethereum couldn't overtake bitcoin in term of market capitalization then I don't think Ethereum has other trick that could help make that possible.

Coins with more stability like stablecoin are those that I'll bet on because time will come when stablecoin will become a household name in the industry that everyone would want to use them.

Keeping your asset in exchanges might be risky tho, anything which happens to the exchange affects your funds, and talking about hard wallet! I ain't used to it which makes me prefers cold wallet for keeping my assets safe.

When you say it like that, it seem exchange were an option before but since from the very begining they haven't been an option then you should go with the statement, Exchanges most especially the centralized ones are bad for the industry.

Exchanges this day have found a way to convince (actually decieving) users into trusting their funds with them. They constantly have engaging ads that'll make you want to engage with them 24/7 with your funds. They have Crowdfunding in exchange IEO, staking, Mining and the most recent which is farming.

They also present themselves as a safest way to store the variety of coins you would had picked interest in investing into them.

Is someone worried about the recent decline of BTC? Don't worry, and it won't lose BTC's momentum in the future.

Any decline of the price of bitcoin should be seen as a golden opportunity to get some bitcoin cheap before the next wave of mooning comes into the picture. Anyone worries doesn't understand how the market works, we're bullish and this trend is likely going to continue until the end of the year.

Any decline is just a correction that won't last long as we have those patiently waiting for this kind of opportunity to enter the market. Best you can do is to keep holding your coins Instead of been all worries when the corrections occurs.

What's Litecoin doing on the list anyway, UNI and Link that I understand since they're very promising and have alot of future ahead but Litecoin is just another OG benefiting from the success of bitcoin. I think it's quite time we left all this old project that offers nothing new to the industry and give room for more innovative and promising project to take the spotlight.

The writer only used his headline to catch the attention of his audience, to be frank, the only reason I read through the article was because I wanted to see what he mentioned due to the headline. I think he (the writer) must be a Litecoin bag holder and just trying to pump it like creating more awareness with this article.

I won't be surprised though that's what most old project are now doing, just creating hype around the project when nothing is been developed. Bitcoin uni and link were just used to complete the puzzle.

When it comes to the cryptocurency industry, the game changes. Instead of diversifying into other altcoins, you're better off investing in just Bitcoin. Other projects are bond to fail, they aren't as decentralized as you might think and all have public figures that can easily manipulate the market due to them been founders or having media presence as a big supporter/investor in the project.

When it comes to investing in cryptocurency, you should put all your egg in one basket which I s bitcoin and hold until that basket for as long as you can. The profits that comes from holding is far more superior to any other form of investing.

It also need less work to accomplish this, with trading you have to constantly monitor the market but that's not the case with holding, basically you invest and do nothing.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: JUST CURIOUS on: May 10, 2021, 04:05:33 AM
Who cares about their investment choices, you wanting to know this could only mean one thing, you're waiting on them to make your own decisions which shouldn't be so. If you give this so called influencer alot of attention they'll misuse it and make millions out of us for been gullible.

They're humans like you and me therefore so much attention shouldn't be given to what they think instead you do you own research and buy coins on your own preference and also sell when you deem fit that your investment has given you enough return of investment.

Take the case of Elon as an example, he was given much attention and has misused it in pumping worthless projects.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Elon musk is for crypto or just for attention to boost Tesla, SpaceX? on: May 09, 2021, 08:06:06 AM
It's no secret that the mass media and social networks are capable of manipulating public opinion. Many people recklessly trust the opinion of the  reputable successful individuals and of the majority.

Quite a pity as not many know this smart guys they idolized are just using them to create more wealth for themselves. Elon promoting doge is just for his selfish reasons. He knows bitcoin can't be manipulated like with other altcoins. Today doge dropped approximately -45% with in minutes, and probably many investors would have been rekted by now.

Majority of individual of the general public wants quick money which is what lead then to invest in project that get hyped from this public figures without having any fundamentals or real utilities

With what Elon is doing, I don't think he has the best interest of the industry at heart knowing fully well that when the bubble does burst and the hype is over thousands of speculators will be hurt and this will definitely  paint the industry black as some pump and dump market which will drive away potential investors.
16  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: your worst mistake on: May 08, 2021, 04:43:00 AM
From my point of view I have done good in trading. Choosing some project is very easier for me but I had made real and big mistake that I haven't hold any coin for some big profits. My patience is very poor quality. Without patience nobody can change their lifes in cryptocurrencie.

Exactly, earlier this year I had a feeling binance coin would do great and picked interest in investing in it. Bought a couple with some friends and it begins to give us profit. Initially I wanted to hold until the end of year but due to the pressure of securing profit before a sudden market crash, we lost the opportunity to be among those happily rejoicing because of the return of investment their investment has given.

Whats funny was that I brought up the idea of buying the BNB and it was very early in February, BNB was just trading around $40 that means judging from the current price we should have been seating on 10x+ our investment right now. The lesson here is to invest individually so you can call all the shot and not combining with friends to invest.
17  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Investing Urge or Trading Surge on: May 08, 2021, 04:35:26 AM
I'd say you invest a large percentage of it, say 70%, into that project and the remaining 30% into active trading to make some short term profits.
Secondly, it's too risky to put all your eggs in one basket. It's very easy to lose all in the case

Since it's a long term project I would rather give it a 40% investment while I trade with the remaining 60%. Chances are, if I'm focused and that good at trading, I'll probably double my capital in no time and now I'll have more funds to invest in the project. The initial investment was just incase the coins skyrocket so I won't be left out of the party.

Now if when you want invest, the coin has risen to some incredible price then you'll just have to wait for a correction, it might not fall to your initial buying price but at least it'll give you an opportunity to enter the trade and don't forget you're in for long term so the profits will always be certain provided you made the right selection of coins.
18  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: I can never get my price :( on: May 08, 2021, 04:23:44 AM
But if you wanna earn a lot of cash. Then learn how to identify the long term porject.

While this is true, I believe the OP wasn't referring to this instead was more concerned on why his trades aren't been execute each time he place an order. If you read about comments, suggestions has been given and he has finally come up with a decision of using tether fir his trade instead of bitcoin that he initial uses.

Just like the OP, trading with bitcoin for beginners is kind of confusing which is why for that decision taken by the OP, most probably he'll begin to see some changes like for now there's an assurance of his trade getting executed as the price of bitcoin won't be having mush effect on the altcoins/USDT pair unlike that of bitcoin pairs.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Do you set stop loss for long term gem? on: May 07, 2021, 04:55:20 AM

I want to ask for some long term hodler or altcoin gem hunter there.
Are you considering having a stop loss for every altcoin you bought for long term?

In my opinion, if you can set stop loss for long term investment then you're doing it all wrong. For a stop lost features to be implemented that means that coin is on an exchange which is wrong.

The only fund that should be held on the exchange is funds to be used for trading and it shouldn't be above your emotional capabilities of handling incase there's a negative results from the trades.

Long term investment coins should be stored on private/personal wallet that you own the private key. These day we have wallet that are capable of holding multiple coins not minding the blockchain they operate on and they're non custodial.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: When Altseason ? on: May 07, 2021, 04:38:17 AM
The question now should be when is the altcoins season ending, if anyone is still asking when is the altcoins season begining then that person must have been in the dark. Alt season started late last year and it continued into this year. Already we have seen different alts doing impressive numbers and other old coins recording new highs.

Investing in altcoins now should be very strategic as no one knows when the corrections will start coming in. We're in the last stage that's if there'll be more to come which probably will take us into year end.

If there was no precautions measure already put in place like stop loss then that should be set up immediately as anything can happen. Avoid investing in shitcoin now, sure they have given huge profit but don't let that fool you into investing in scam as that's likely what'll be trending now.
