541  Economy / Speculation / Re: American Investors Plan to “HODL” Bitcoin Until Price Hits $196,000 on: November 17, 2017, 05:34:41 PM
Yeah, man, I read this too. Can you believe it? I can. But I'm surprised anyone can put a price on it. Hodl until you need the money, right? And hopefully by that time you can just buy what you need - whatever it is, everything that it is - directly with Bitcoin.

I look forward to the time when it's just plain easy to buy anything with Bitcoin.

At what price would you sell your bitcoin?

If you don't need the money immediately, just wait until you absolutely need it. Definitely do not sell before we reach 5 digits. I think reaching 5 digits is a huge mental threshold for the currency and the community, so once we have that behind us, I'm thinking the only way the currency can go is up.
That is why you need to plan for holding your coins because there's a vast of opportunities that is coming just by holding and this events will happen soon, we can't deny the fact that there are some emergency and situations that we badly needed a money and that will result for selling some or all of your btc, that's why you need to do an alternative methods like savings, working on a physical jobs, risking a portion of your btc to trading so that you will not gonna spend all of your sleeping btc on your cold storage pocket. Prevention is better than cure they've said.

Bashing and accusing bitcoin all along and then created their own blockchain technology "Quorum" which the technology that the bitcoin is using and based on. It's really the opposite of what he is doing it is like hey lets ruin the bitcoin but please support our developed system that is based on blockchain which is where the btc is based on.

Now the karma is real, the saying what you saw you will reap is what's happening to Jamie Dimon. What you said that bitcoin is fraud and it is a mere tool for money laundering is what's really your doing right?
543  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin investment at a time like this on: November 17, 2017, 05:01:34 PM
Bitcoin is a long-time investment, so you can buy bitcoin and hold them, for resell it when the price is higher
And i think that can happen soon, maybe at the end of 2017 Smiley
But not as long as the stock markets, Imagine you need to wait for years to see some promising results for your assets to grow, but crytocurrency like bitcoin can be a short time investments but that will always depends to the person and the events that is happening to the market.

Well the best way to grow your investments to crypto these days is a long term one and for the short term investments are for the altcoins, the safe way to maximize your profits is just simply by hodling but if you want to take the risk and you have plenty of bitcoins of your own you can go for trading.
544  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: DISCUSSION: Is Bitcoin Silently Losing the War to Privacy Coins? on: November 17, 2017, 04:12:26 PM
Everyone has heard how some people claim that Bitcoin doesn't scale because it's blocks are too small, but the real reason for that problem is that our Internet connection doesn't have enough bandwidth to allow average users to process thousands of transactions per second. So, what does that have to do with privacy coins? Well, their transactions tend to weight much more than those of traditional coins, because of all those complex signature algorithms that create that privacy - hence, privacy coins are even less scalable than Bitcoin. Of course you could increase their block size, but it would cause node centralization, which would quickly defeat any privacy. So, private coins right now can't become a widespread currency, they can only serve as store of value.

Thank you so much for your response. You're the only person that posited a response from which I learned something from.

The points you make are incredibly strong and serve as a counter argument to if privacy coins can ever be a serious threat.

Do you think Bitcoin core can implement anything to improve anonymity, whilst at the same time ensuring scalability is always possible?
The upgrade to the bitcoin network might be the solution for the scaling that the Lightning network can provide yet it still on alpha phase development at some point, this would benefit the micro payments of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that features peer to peer transactions systems.

Andreas Antonopoulos provide a great explanation about the bitcoin scalability

545  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Which is more profitable trading exchange or mining and why?? on: November 16, 2017, 04:26:22 PM
For me trading is more profitable than mining, mining needs huge capital before you can start to mine and you need to have a free electricity for you to earn good bitcoin. But in trading, it is depend on us on how much do we want to buy or to sell, for me it is more easy to earn in trading than mining.
The two of them have a very different angles and aspects to earn digital coins from different people's perspective and situation, it is because some of them earn more a lot easier from mining than trading because they are into technical and networking stuff as well as a good researcher to target a promising coin to mine utilizing the mining electricity and equipment but some of them failed in mining thus experienced to earn more from trading because they have a better understanding and knowledge about how trading works in crypto.

So for the Op's question was always depends in your skills and situation yes mining takes a lot of time to earn the ROI but if the electricity bill is promising to be cheaper it will be the opportunity to gear some small mining rigs and the income is a sure ball. Trading can also be profitable and can generate fast results but the problem with this is you need to watch the market too often and the risk is high because the market is not stable you can lose your money easily.
546  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How much do you generally invest in an ICO ? on: November 16, 2017, 03:52:13 PM
I usually do an investments that cost me around $200 to $500 per ICO, that would be risky if you just dump your pennies out of them without reading the white paper and without conducting a proper research about their project, their coin and the background of their team which will have a big role for an ICO.

If I've found out that they really have a strong foundation and dedication to win the project added by the supporters and the purpose of the coin i will invest $1000 because it boost my confidence that my investments will grow up because of the trust that they are building to the clients. Well I'm looking forward for my Sig campaign Angel Token because they have a pretty good team and still reading the White paper so far so good.
547  Economy / Economics / Re: why bitcoin is so much special than others currency ? on: November 16, 2017, 03:37:09 PM
This is so really hard to say special cause its difficult to explain specialty in short word
Some of them  are given below:

It’s a type of currency which know as peer to peer currency and this permit to send and receive money without help of broker or third party involvement 
Every bitcoin holder can review their account information after sending money or receiving money from their account.
After all kind of transection bitcoin recorded sufficient proof of every client and account holder through different facilities.
Buying and selling process is so much easier than other currency
I think above mention quotation is sufficient for proving that how much special the bitcoin is.

The speciality in bitcoin comes when we see it as a first ever cryptocurrency . Also no other currency whether crypto or fiat has increased in price value and popularity compared to bitcoin.
Satoshi Nakamoto did a wonderful system of a currency that is almost the opposite of the central banking that we know it fails the economy that is why he created this innovative and unique way of a currency implementing of what is the available technology right now and that is the Internet.

Making it more Special is the way how volatility really works as for a trader it is a stunning to see a percentage of a crypto moves so fast, it was like any minute it can go a tremendous pump but sometimes a dump with a negative red percentage beating the stock markets about how fast the result can you achieve and how much can you earn a profit from in just a matter of days but that depends solely to your gambling in risk and emotion.
548  Economy / Economics / Re: impacts off cryptocurrency on: November 16, 2017, 02:49:09 PM
what are the social and economic impacts cryptocurrencies have ?
and how will this affect third world and poor countries because of their limited access to internet and modern technology?
This coin is still premature to make a nation impact the transformation or change of the economy as we know some of them prohibitively or strictly implemented some measures for the use of it to the point that some countries bans the exchanges and coinbase.

Some of the impact is pretty negative and some are positively progressive that's why some countries prohibits or regulated some ICO's and some crypto because some petty criminals are using this for their illegal transactions and Ponzi schemes all because of its feature anonymity.

But because of its transparency it can impact the Government by setting a wallet that is designated for them or for their Department letting them sign the wallet to prove the ownership and the funds thus making it more public eliminating corruption and stealing people's tax.

Another thing is the business, company and banks adaptation towards the blockchain technology making the transaction more efficient, decentralized, public and faster but as I've said it is still premature that needs further developments and improvements.
549  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Too late to invest in cryptos if you're old? on: November 16, 2017, 02:14:07 PM
What would you guys advise someone who is retired, living off pension and savings? Is it too late/risky to invest at that kind of age?
Do you guys think the elderly have a chance of jumping on the crypto train, or do you guys think it's too late for them to invest?

Even in technological advancement I've seen some elders who adapted to computers, smartphones and uses of the internet. they even beat the millennials in terms of knowledge about it, how come it is too late for them to relay and invest to the new technology/system for currency that is being served to us.

I heard some stories to my office mates that they taught and introduced to their grandparents the uses of bitcoin and some cryptocurrencies and why it is a good investments mostly for the senior citizens, their response is fascinating because they have very good feedback about it. I remember it is way back January 2016 so they probably earning right now just by hodling.

550  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Under Attack Stay Strong on: November 16, 2017, 01:53:31 PM
Having the belief to btc will not gonna put us in vain and it looks like the BCH bubble is slowly popping out, getting the price from $3000 down to $1000 that still continues to dump.

The transaction will also slowly getting back to normal as I tested out to pass a some sats to my Friends wallet and got confirmed within 1 hour so it is not bad because i used to increase the transaction fee a bit.

It looks like that this attack make's bitcoin more expensive as it is getting to $8000 very soon because btc suddenly jumps to a price of $7454 which is a promising one.
551  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why Craig Steven Wright claimed he is Satoshi Nakamoto? on: November 16, 2017, 01:32:50 PM
Simple answer, To earn more money from it, To use it for his personal propaganda and a tool for the power and authorship of this system claiming and declaring it as his patent. A clever but at the same time a desperate move for a businessman like him to claim such thing that anyone can do that.

Just read the white paper of bitcoin, study cryptography and you can do a self proclaimed drama that you are Satoshi the author of the very first cryptocurrency, the real one will never gonna reveal his/her identity to the public we don't also know if Satoshi is still alive or not.

553  Economy / Economics / Re: Yes or No? Doesn't Bitcoin unfairly benefit early adopters? on: November 12, 2017, 09:17:58 AM
Nope It is because even they are early adopters some of them messed up their bitcoin and made a huge mistakes and loses. Why? the hype is really tempting when you are a pioneers of bitcoin where the price is still small and can be afford by ordinary citizens, some of the buy the FOMO of other altcoins and some them believe in the FUD that is spreading that time what is their reaction? panic selling missing out the big opportunity that is already happening now and that is the edge for the late adopters they learn from their mistakes and continues to hodl.
554  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: long term invest in bitcoin on: October 31, 2017, 05:48:29 AM
Don't think twice about investing now and do not expect that it will have a very deep dump for the next months like 20 - 40% dumps to its prices the usual dump ranges from 4 - 11% instead it will pump to $7000 - $9000 probably next year so now is the time to buy bitcoins and wait till it reaches its promising prices next year before it is not affordable due to its very high price per 1 bitcoin.
555  Economy / Economics / Re: Benefits of Bitcoin (Deregulated economy) on: October 31, 2017, 05:36:56 AM
It is not a benefit to a country if the bitcoin is deregulated like what happens to the past like the silk road where they can buy illegal things like guns and different variety of drugs, they use the bitcoin for their own illegal activities such as money laundering, scamming and stealing which is bad for the bitcoin community part, that's why it needs to be regulated in order for the government and authorities to eliminate such activities and make the bitcoin transactions safe.
556  Economy / Economics / Re: Gold: Should We Cash Up or Dive In? on: October 31, 2017, 05:23:38 AM
Precious metal such as Gold, Silver etc is still a good and safe investments for investors but the problem is the time you will spent to accumulate the return of your capital by investing to these such metals unlike bitcoin and other alt coins in crypto market, the risk is so high that you can either lose or win but the difference is the value fluctuations from time to time. it doesn't need to wait for over many years just to increase their values. they increase or decrease from minutes to hours a day but the majority is the pump most for the bitcoin. the most safe to do is to invest to gold and other metals then at the same time take the risk to the crypto market.
557  Economy / Economics / Re: if we die on: October 31, 2017, 05:15:21 AM
If you are holding a tons of bitcoin to your wallet, better to make a preparation and back ups to your private key by paper wallets or writing it on a paper because we can't really say when and where we gonna die so awareness and preparedness is better most if you are a multi millionaire bitcoin user or if you want you can make it as a form of inheritance to your children and wife when you died instead of being greedy and keeping it all by yourself, if i'm your child that would be one of the greatest inheritance that i will ever receive.
558  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Any one effected? on: October 31, 2017, 04:45:24 AM
I think it is for the users who affected by visiting phishing sites that impersonates Xapo as the real website and then if they've login their account on a Xapo phishing sites, that's the time the account will be hacked and their btc will be stolen by the hackers, always look at the URL whenever visit a website most specially for your wallet accounts online, if the real website uses .com then they will just copy it and make their phishing website ended with .net the same URL name. always observe and read before entering your critical login details.
559  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: 1ST Step investing in bitcoin on: October 30, 2017, 07:17:46 AM
Your 1st step is divided in two ways, Knowledge and capital. you need knowledge and understanding that trading in crypto are almost a different thing in trading on stock markets or any trading platforms, digital coins are vastly volatile meaning its price always fluctuates from minute to hour and a day even it is positive or a negative change. most of the crypto traders make it as an advantage to double or triple their capital buy selling high and buying low but you need to do a proper research about your target coin most if that is an altcoin or a token because most of them are scams that riding the btc boat. the Second that I've mentioned is capital which is obviously needed at least a big capital to have a better results.
560  Economy / Economics / Re: Is China making a U-Turn with Huobi? on: October 30, 2017, 07:00:26 AM
They are now executing their plan B that if you cannot defeat them then just ride or join them and think for another strategy to control and manipulate the bitcoin. It is expected that they will make this decision to lift up the ban that they imposed to the exchanges and ICO's implementing extreme regulations and policies to prevent ICO scammers. I also read that somewhere i think here in BTT forum they will surely do it anyway we know Chinese Government wants to achieve.
