1  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Most Promising Cryptocurrencies to Invest in 2019 on: November 15, 2018, 08:19:14 AM
It is sensible to know which coins have the most solid investment fundamentals with the best chance of generating profit in the coming year. This piece will give an overview of the best cryptocurrency to invest in 2019.

Best cryptocurrencies to invest in 2019
I think no matter what type of small coin you want to invest in, never exceed %5 of your portfolio, I mean if they out pace all others and get bigger than you can certainly see them grow over 5% of your portfolio yourself in which case it is fine but while buying never spend more than 5% of your investment into just one coin. I would still suggest keeping most of your lion share at big coins like bitcoin, ethereum, dash, litecoin and so forth.

I am still in love with ethereum and what it can achieve, right now there are many more new stuff used for it like companies built on the ethereum blockchain and games made into ethereum blockchain and even this new cryptokitties type collectibles thing going around. I can not think of a world where ethereum would be going any further down, it has amazing potentials and will be rivaling bitcoin one day.

The trading abilities come with how much time you dedicate to it and your experience that bring about the best personal method of trading.  The profit or loss you make is proportional to you knowledge,  skill and experience in cryptocurrency market!
That is for sure one thing that I know that when it comes to trading, it takes you zeal and your hunger to learn, to get better quickly over time. However, it is always very imperative to take learning seriously and not rush it at any point in time.

Today, people want to rush learning and practicing all in the name of wanting to start getting rich pretty fast and as a result of that, they just end up screwing everything up and saying the market is being manipulated or they have learned but everything just seems to be the same.

Having a strategy is all that it takes and most especially you want to know how to take out emotions and stick with executing your strategy when it comes to day trading, and that is one strategy you sure must have built on and gain confidence on with practice, before even trading the real world.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: 8 reasons to start playing blockchain games on: November 12, 2018, 07:09:58 PM
There was a time when blockchain games were really scammy, there was a lot of games where you owned like chickens or mining or whatever and you made free money if you want to but very little and if you put in money you could say that good bye because after a while they just closed shop and left. Those times left a bad taste in old crypto people like me, I have been around to know that it is not quite possible to sustain those types of business models and really hard to get funded, cryptokitties is an exception and I can see myself playing that which I haven't and probably won't but I would support their existence at least. With that in mind the new blockchain games are looking like they are better than the last ones and maybe I will be wrong and they will have a good career.
4  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Trading without losses? on: November 10, 2018, 10:27:33 AM
Trading without losses can be a very good example of trading mastery and an in depth knowledge of technical analysis about the market movement. One thing that i have learned about trading too is that you should not trade based on your emotions.
Oh please! There is nothing as trading mastery because of trading without losses, as that is not something that can ever happen as long as you are a retail trader. People tend to make that mistake a lot and forgetting that we are just trading the trends of the market, if you are looking for those who are trading without loss, then, you should be looking at the big institutional traders instead since they are the market controllers.

You guys who are new to trading, need to get a grasp of that mentality, that losses are part of trading and if you have no idea how to inculcate risk management in your trade, you will be screwed.
5  Economy / Economics / Re: Do you ever wonders why we are using this paper as money? on: November 09, 2018, 11:53:26 AM
Just want to share the details about the people who ever thinks that why we need to use just paper as currency and we all are working hard to get those paper.People claiming that bitcoin is not virtual so it cannot be considered as money or they call it as scam or ponzi but they are using just papers for centuries and those paper currency were made out of thin air.
This paper money has been around for hundreds of years, as a means of exchange and developed into a currency and has value. you're right this is an old-fashioned way, because this method was taken from the past, technological changes will definitely occur, but it takes a process, because the government is not likely to directly implement digital and virtual currency in their country, because of many things such as human resources who do not understand that
I don't. I mean it is the easiest method of carrying your money in your hands, it has been going on longer than you think. In roman times people would give papers that shows the amount owed to them. Say you give someone a whole farms products than he would give you a paper stating he owes you certain amount of coins. You could use that to purchase other stuff and get your money back and those people you gave the paper to can collect it from the initial buyer when the time comes.

Sort of like the cheque we have right now. That just evolved over time into banknotes printed by the governments and got this big. Bitcoin for example is just a digital asset that normally has no value AT ALL but we say it worths something and it does, normally all money you know are like that but at least most of it has a backing from a government, when you have 10 dollar banknote in your hand government says you own 10 dollars, in bitcoin there is nothing like that neither and we still find it valuable.
6  Economy / Speculation / Re: 2019 Will Be Remarkable for the Industry on: November 08, 2018, 09:32:39 AM
I hope that in 2019 more banks are going to support the cryptocurrency as we all know we need banks to process our digital money into fiats and vice versa more regulations will be imposed by each government regarding scam ICOs and digital tokens if this happens more industry will have interest on how blockchain technology will be very helpful in solving their current problems.
I suspect we will get to see more banks and financial institutions actually coming to show their support and then also trying to at least want to be a part of the space as much as they can. We all know the level at which a lot of them have been trying to see a way to be a part of things, coming up with different innovations, trying to be in the forefront, which I so much believe, they may have just been stashing up low key right from the onset.

However things would be though, I believe so much in the long term prospect of this space, and the fact that we will get to see this space grow more than it is now definitely.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Projects are abusing blockchain technology. on: November 07, 2018, 12:49:52 PM
Yes, there is such problem. Basicly I can split all ICOs in 3 different groups:
1- blockchain infrastructure projects, where blockchain is a primarly purpose
2- projects, where blockchain is used indirectly
3- ICOs which use blockchain just to collect money.
Lol. As funny as the category sounds and most especially the last category in the list, it is just the honest truth. And the funniest part of it is that the last part is actually the enormous one in this space, but it still amuses me that a lot of investors usually do not always care so much about this and they do not tend to realize that some of these ICOs using the blockchain to just collect money in the name of some utility token, a lot of them are usually not worth it in the long run. However, we just have to admit the fact that it is a growing space and there would always be things like this now until at least investors start making use of their head and as the space keeps getting matured.
8  Economy / Economics / Re: CryptoCurrencies around the GLOBE on: November 07, 2018, 12:11:01 PM
I am believe many people aware about cryptocurrency but not many involve and investing their money in crypto. I am believe in near future, cryptocurrency more popular and when government regulate cryptocurrency, i am believe more people will invest in cryptocurrency
Not many people are actually aware, but majority of people who are aware are not actually in the system yet and while some are trying to at least get a good ground on how to be able to do things within the space, and understand what this is all about, some are pretty scared because they have no single clue what it is all about.

It will take someone who is curious; have some basic understanding of economics, and some pretty good I.T knowledge to quickly grasp as much as they can to be able to handle a lot of the things in this space. Even as we are here now, a lot of people in this forum do not even know much about security of their wallets, so you can imagine!
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Prayer to ALL bounty managers on: November 07, 2018, 09:40:49 AM
Real reasons why I join bounties that are well spelt out about their dates. There are some bounty managers that are good at that and I follow join their bounties, any bounty that is not specific about start and end date is not for me at all. It does not matter how much they promise to pay, I will prefer a one or two months bounty that has specific duration as it helps one plan his activities and know directions better than living in assumptions. Time is of essence
Well, that is one good plan when it comes to bounties, and it is the same thing here. Although sometimes, I tend to bend that rules when I know it is a bounty that will end up succeeding and there is every chance that the project's ICO will most definitely end up successful for so many reasons which I have never been wrong, I can decide to go more than 2 months.

Nonetheless, I believe it is always a thing to be cleared out in the beginning when joining a bounty, so in a way it is always better to at least make sure that you are doing your best as much as you can to always make do with what you can when it comes to the rules.
10  Economy / Economics / Re: Do you ever wonders why we are using this paper as money? on: November 07, 2018, 08:01:54 AM
paper money is part of the history of the human revolution, from the very beginning using metal even now, and perhaps many rulers thought paper money was better in terms of quality and security, although now that is doubtful, for a moment I think if this is the development of currencies then there is a possibility in the future when the paper money is no longer reliable, then crypto will replace it, if seen from the mindset and lifestyle of humans now it seems that it will not be difficult, but whose name lives in a country too many regulations that sometimes inhibit changes, regulations that are too rigid and standard will be a big obstacle, maybe it's time to make a revolution, which inevitably takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice to make it happen, are you ready for that?
Well, it paper money has been a part of the human revolution, the thing now is that a lot of things flopped about it, which I cannot say if that was a result of paper money itself, or as a result of some bad economic policies that really damaged a lot of things, and the government has been able to keep covering that up to make us believe there is still some sort of value for the use of paper currency.

Nonetheless, I guess another revolution is about taking over yeah? So in that case, I guess we can then understand the main reason why paper currency actually sucks.
11  Economy / Speculation / Re: Will bitcoin stay relatively stable and become a stablecoin? on: November 05, 2018, 08:16:31 AM
Bitcoin is volatile and the current bitcoins value is just temporarily stable. BTC at the moment found itself at the support zone and at a time surprise it holders of it potentials to soar higher in the future. BTC is not relatively stable and cannot become a stablecoin.
Probably, people need to understand the meaning of something before they even ask a question which in this case, I am not sure the OP tried to understand the meaning of stable coin before asking that question. Bitcoin is bitcoin, and even though we end up experiencing some level of decrease in volatility over time, which I believe is not even anytime soon, that does not make it a stable coin.

A stable coin is a coin that is pegged to a physical entity, fiat or asset as the case may be and that is what makes it a stable coin. So, considering that because we are seeing some small fluctuation as stability is even absurd.
12  Economy / Speculation / Re: Is "speculation leaving the market"? What does low BTC volatility really mean? on: November 05, 2018, 06:50:23 AM
It's only boring for the investors that look at the top end on the coincarketcap rankings as they all follow bitcoin. Look at the bottom end of the top 100 and you can make a killing if you pick the right altcoin
I would not see anything as boring at the moment, because what I see honestly is the market at least picking where to go, up or down and until then, we will see this sideways movement.

However, what you said, makes a lot of sense, and when the market eventually recovers, there is always the necessity to at least, try as much as possible to be picking the right coins or tokens with great potentials at the moment. However, speculation is still going to be fully part of this market until we start seeing real life usage and there is actually nothing we can do about that.
13  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Begginers in trading ( share you experiences about trading ) on: November 03, 2018, 11:10:13 AM
In trading we not necesary to have knowledge all thing about technical  analysis,  if we just understanding about some indicator like moving average and bolinger band so we can jump in to trading. And the most important  thing is how to minimize the risk from high fluctuation of crypto by make risk management.
The truth is that it is good to have as much knowledge as you can have and not rush into things, because it is all these acquisition of knowledge that would make you to be able to come up with a good strategy in the long run in the first place. If you manage to discard the part of learning very well, and never stop learning, while trying to practice every step of the way using probably a demo platform, you will find it hard to ever be able to get it right.
Knowledge, which is one thing that will always be needed to thrive and be able to do well in anything. Most of the people I have seen today are always in a haste to do things because they just want to quickly get rich and that makes them most of the time, to not be able to take their time to learn, try as much as possible to make sure they are very sound with their decision making by practicing and before you know it they just rush into the market like you said. Unfortunately, they always get to rush out the same way they rushed in and that is how not seeking knowledge can lead someone into not ever getting it right.

I start in trading last week but I lost 0.02 bitcoin in other crypto coins I trade but now I keep holding bitcoin and waiting for a big price to pump to recover what i lost for me.
Obviously, you started trading without any much knowledge, no form of practice on your strategy to back test it and then you are simply just rushing into the market. Sure thing is this, once you are approaching the market and trading really without any concrete strategy, there is always a possibility of losing something.

Now, I am not saying that loss is not something that you will not get to see over time, because even as a pro trader, you will always get to see losses once in a while, but the thing you should always consider is that, that loss is something you have to be able to manage, and without a strategy and plan, you can never be able to get that done.
14  Economy / Economics / Re: Japan grants cryptocurrency industry self-regulatory status on: November 03, 2018, 10:29:01 AM
The actions of Japan are fully consistent with the spirit and ideas laid down in the cryptocurrency, namely the freedom from any interference and regulation. The Japanese government has obviously demonstrated trust and respect for the cryptocurrency market. This is great news!
we know Japan is country in forefront of cryptocurrency. of course they always make a breakthrough for development of cryptocurrency, so that if many countries have followed in their footsteps, they will prosper
I just like the fact that even despite some of the big theft cases that happened recently, Japan is still doing everything to make it feel right and make the users protected, while at the same time embracing cryptocurrency. This is a country with a great vision and this is one of the reasons why Japan has become a cryptocurrency haven.

As far as I am concerned, if there is no great benefit they are seeing to make cryptocurrency thrive in the country in terms of adoption, they won't be doing much to making it become a huge reality without any complications in the long run when it comes to usage.
15  Economy / Economics / Re: Is technical analysis negatively affecting cryptocurrencies? on: November 03, 2018, 09:52:40 AM
I have to agree. All these technical analysis is merely a technical term for a guess. I myself do this but backed up with trends from way back. And i still get it only 2 in 5 times at a time. I guess you can use a technical analysis as maybe a suggestion when investing but all in all we all should just read up and analyse ourselves the coin we are investing in.
Technical analysis have been alive even before cryptocurrency came into play and has been a guide for most traders to always anticipate for what is next and that makes me wonder why anyone would think it is a problem.

Whether we like it or not, we will always have institutional investors, whales and retail traders, who will always want to take advantage of market fluctuations and those fluctuations are just a part of the market that has a lot to do with demand and supply, and there is absolutely no way you will not have to see technical analysis coming into play.
16  Economy / Economics / Re: Can Bitcoin really stabilize any country's economy level? on: November 03, 2018, 08:31:44 AM
In my opinion, bitcoin can not function to stabilize an economy, it can only increase its GDP by allowing investors to make more money. However, because of its instability, the stabilization function of the economy seems to belong to stable currencies other than bitcoin.
A good point there! We have seen the likes of Japan's GDP increase over time, based on the possibility of legalizing and regulating cryptocurrency. Bitcoin itself is not just some miracle performer that will start helping to fix things, it is just a tool.

Tool for payment which could help bring freedom in some certain ways and make it easy the way we do transactions, save time in most cases as well, when compared to having to use the banks, with their crazy shitty policies. A country's economy will have a lot to do with the leadership and for a corrupt setting, there is just so little bitcoin can do at all.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Are we about to see another dive in crypto prices? on: October 27, 2018, 07:56:21 AM
I wouldn't think too far, and I still believe that the market will show the green price for many coin and bitcoin will still increase. Maybe there is a correction that will happen soon so the price can increase higher. I don't want to become panic if the worst moment comes and I think I will make another strategy if the market shows a real fallen. But we are still at the $64xx and the price now is green so I think we need to prepare if we want to sell some bitcoin.
I am actually expecting we may get to see some boost in terms of prices pretty soon but that would depend on how bitcoin ends up before the end of the year.

Q4 though has always been known to come with pretty good growth most of the time, and I believe that with a good chance for bitcoin to take to an uptrend by breaking the current triangle, we might actually have a possibility of seeing the whole altcoin market trying to make an attempt towards the moon. However, we just have to be patient to see how things will turn out as nothing right now is predictable.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: ESMA is suggested regulating crypto and ICO on: October 25, 2018, 12:15:25 PM
ESMA is recommended to consider transferable crypto assets used in payments under the EU's MiFID II (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II) regulations T.T The advisory also follows reports in early October that the ESMA was considering whether to regulate initial coin offering (ICO) tokens as securities on a case-by-case basis. I believe cryptocurrency is getting harder and harder to survive. How do you think about the regulation in the near future? Please share your thought below ^^
I guess this is one concern that is basically brewing in the crypto space at the moment based on the fact that with regulation, we will actually get to see some level of maturity as well as confidence from investors in the space.

Looking at the way ICOs have been over the years and the level of scam activities that has been going on, it is imperative to have some level of regulations, most especially within the ICO space, but the thing here is that, based on the fact that this is a global thing, regulation will be a hard thing to easily achieve, unless every country come together to form a global framework for regulations.
19  Economy / Economics / Re: Transferring of wealth from the impatient to the patient! on: October 25, 2018, 11:28:41 AM
I agree that you need huge patience with crypto, crypto just start to grow so we can't expect something big could happen in instance, the growth also not that stable uet, but I do see a lot of potential and easiness that crypto could provide if its being mass adopted, and now we are in the process of fighting with regulation, if we can cope or win with the regulation then we can see huge rising of crypto value
It is not a pure form of investment so we can't expect this to be an invetment for forever because when the cryptos were adopted by mass people then the prices will be stable so chances of making money with stable prices are hard and people also will look for some other investments.
Whether as an investment or not, one thing is certain, a time will come when there would be real life usage and the chances of seeing some level of stability will be there but obviously it cannot be completely stable.

However, we know that even in the long run, this space will really be serving a whole lot as a store of value most of the time, and in that case it would not change it from being much of an asset like gold and the likes, but the thing is that with real life usage, it even makes things a whole lot better. Those who are not patient now to focus on the future will most definitely have themselves to blame for it, there is no doubt about that.
20  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin going towards the dark on: October 20, 2018, 02:11:07 PM
Bitcoin prices are constantly decreasing.Its price has increased slightly a few days ago, but now it has decreased again.So, the bitcoin will be completely destroyed? If the predictions of different researchers will be wrong then..
What is the reason for lowering the price of Bitcoin?

I think Bitcoin already hit the buttom for this year which is $6,000 therefore we should not think of too much speculation like Bitcoin will be destroyed but we should focus now on how much we will going to earn in the future as sooner ot later price will finally bounce back as predicted by most of the famous experts in this field.
I would not actually be so fast in calling a bottom at this moment in time. Sure, we have seen some reaction in the $6k region, but one thing for sure now is that we just have to wait and see how the whole triangle thing is going to play out first. I won't be surprised if we get to see a final shakeout in the market, before we get to see an uptrend suffice, but all the same, there is nothing like bitcoin going towards the dark here, and in the long term we are still experiencing a huge light and one thing for sure is that what some are calling a bottom now is what was an ATH just last year. Imagine how things would be in the long run.
