1  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [∞ YH] solo.ckpool.org 2% fee solo mining 256 blocks solved! on: June 07, 2020, 05:02:03 PM
Hey CK.

Trying to figure out how the format has changed on https://solo.ckpool.org:444/users/xxx as solochance.com is no longer working.

Can you advise.

Thanks.

Hello,

The page is no longer showing stats.  Maybe due to the server updates that were recently done?  Just wanted to let you know.  I use the site often.  Thanks.

Thanks for posting. Do you mean stats from ckpool? I just checked using manual entry and it worked.

Edit: Just checked someones address and it appears so. Will look into the update and see if I can fix it.

When the crash comes I think crypto is going to fall with it, people will sell assets to pay their mortgage bill regardless of type. However I think once it has settled, once big money starts buying up assets cheap, crypto is going to be one of them!
People do not pay their mortgages "no matter what", in 2008 there was tens of thousands of people who got kicked out of their houses, but when a crisis comes and the financial world collapses even if the banks seize all of the houses at the first sign, they still have to sell them and they usually sell them for far cheaper which means they will have to both wait and also not make all of the money back.

It is really not an easy task and proof that people sometimes do not pay their mortgages, so they may not sell their bitcoins if it is not even remotely close to their mortgage. Sure if they have to have their cars repaired or something they might sell but a guy who has 100k mortgage debt do not have 100k worth bitcoins, they either have zero because they are in debt or they have a very tiny amount.

If you lose your job and the only way to pay your mortgage bill is by selling assets, you're going to do it. Whether it's a second car, some ETF's or Bitcoin.

How deep we all think Christine Lagarde is associated with Ripple?

She has mentioned Ripple a few times and been seen with Brad Garlinghouse several times, and now there is mention of the IMF being at Ripple's Swell conference in a few weeks time.

Now she is moving to the ECB, I'm confident she will continue to carry favour for Ripple. Sometimes it just seems too good to be true!
I think that Ripple will provide services to many influential people on this planet. The ripple team has a very strong influence on all world markets.

That is the point that makes Ripple attractive to the fintech world but since the MoneyGram deal did not affect the XRP price thing have become unclear.

How much potential does Ripple have to influence the world market? The price needs to pick up and the price should not be affected by BTC even though it is the base rate. If XRP can hold its own away from BTC then it make inroads to replace Ethereum as number 2 by market capital.

XRP definitely needs to stand on its own feet and break away from the BTC swings. Moneygram have stated that Q4 the cross-boarder payments using xRapid should ramp up, and then Q1 there should be good volume. One can only hope it's enough utiliuty to actually boost the price of XRP!

I don't think bitcoin will die, but also I am not 100% sure it is the future. I think it will be used for large payments, it's a slow, heavy online gold. I think something else will be used for normal payments unless lightening is somehow amazing.

With an IEO you would like to think the exchange does some half decent diligence, which should mean they are less likely to be a scam compared to ICO's. Also as the exchange has their name loosely linked with the IEO, you would like to think they would choose projects with at least a reasonable business plan.

Basically IEO's are like ICO's but on average, should be safer.

Personally I'm not touching anything unless it blows my mind, which is highly unlikely.

Don't gamble with your time. Stick to the reliable bounties, I've seen may new ones come and go and never pay out! More so, stick to bounties that have a long lasting business model.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: ???? AFRAID OF NEW PROJECTS !!! ? on: September 27, 2019, 10:20:36 AM
I can only think of 1 genuine project that's yet to release that is truly interesting and genuine, yet back in 2015/16 there was a constant flow of new and innovative ideas. Looking back some were junk but some were good and stayed around. I think now there's enough money in existing projects for them to change to whatever they need to be. It makes no sense that a project launching today will be able to outpace years of dev and money. That is why most are sceptical.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Bakkt disappointment on: September 27, 2019, 10:17:24 AM
Last time a futures market opened BTC got rekt, so why do you think it would be any different with Bakkt?
12  Economy / Speculation / Re: How Bakkt will influence Bitcoin price? on: September 27, 2019, 10:00:06 AM
I don't think Bakkt will directly influence the price of BTC at all. However in the future when bigger players want to dabble in crypto, say as the next bull run comes, then they might want to be able to use Bakkt for institutional plays. That's when it will indirectly increase the price of BTC.
13  Economy / Speculation / Re: Down below $9k! Buy the dip now? on: September 27, 2019, 09:55:35 AM
Depends on your perspective. Long term, 5+ years you can't go wrong accumulating on dips like these. If you have a short term view then yeah you could easily get rekt as BTC could keep falling. I win by always having a long term view lol.

Does anyone know what the latest is with the IOTA Jinn token that was issues on the NXT platform back in the day? It relates to the ternary CPU they were trying to create for IOTA POW.

Anyone in the EU ordered these yet? Got denied and asked to wait for Bitshopper..

What happened? Did the guy claiming to have 6 above refuse to use escrow?

Always use a trusted middle man for transactions with strangers or those who, out of the blue, claim they have what you need.

No, unfortunately they were selling the LTC versions not the BTC ones :/

Bump, will take a used unit but ideally want a new/sealed unit.
