The new age of currency where computers are involved starts few years ago when Satoshi Nakamoto brought his blueprint of bitcoin on the lose in the cyberspace. It's quite astonishing how his algorithm of his digital currency attracts investors that made its value rise up to 5K+ USD giving opportunity to some people that are jobless and making it as a way of living and life-changing for some.

I only think of a limited scenarios in which Altcoins won't die along with Bitcoin and that is when all Bitcoin holders have migrated or shift into the next big cryptocurrency available, but that is of only Bitcoin failed by itself. But if the government have dofferent views otherwise then Bitcoin and other altcoins will die together because Bitcoin is the biggest cryptocurrency in terms of market share, and other are only trading altcoins to earn Bitcoin in the process.
This is true because if bitcoin falls, bitcoin users might jump on the next big altcoin there is. And also altcoins dont have the same developers so its really hard to see all of the altcoins dying and disappearing. A new altcoin will surely rise if bitcoin falls.

Yes because not all alt coins have the same platform as what bitcoin has. Bitcoin may lose its market value in the future for example, but a new successor will follow its path for sure and would become the alpha of all digital coins.

He has a point about bitcoin being used in elicit activities and he may be right on his predictions about the future of bitcoin or he could also be wrong. But i believe, bitcoin has not reached its paramount value yet which i believed that air is just starting to fill the bubble and don't know when it pops. Everyone has its own opinion and are free to express what they wanted to say and so i have mine too. The only question here is "When does this bubble pops?"
824  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Are Bitcoins taxable? on: October 15, 2017, 01:40:06 AM
Let's Bitcoin takes off. Say you lived in the US and had an online service that dealt in the equivalent of ~20,000 USD or more income for you (personally). What are the laws for income tax on a currency like this? Can you get in trouble with the IRS by simply having tons of BTC that the market values at (currently) almost 5$ per BTC?

I think in some country especially the US, the IRS are in the move to intervene in the decentralized way of running the cryptocurrency world. I've read an article at: http://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/040515/are-there-taxes-bitcoins.asp which may be the answer of this topic. But here in our country, we are still enjoying our bitcoin 100% tax free. Smiley
825  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Earning enough with Bitcoin without Job ? on: October 15, 2017, 12:48:08 AM
Man, earning here is really serious and is enough for you think of quitting your job if you have one. My friend's friend quits his job only to focus in bitcoin earning and his decision is really right. His earnings in bitcoin is 5 times bigger than his paycheck before and he said that he's really happy of what he had achieved and happy he made the right decision in his life.
826  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: BITCOIN AS PAYMENT FOR ONLINE GAMES on: October 14, 2017, 11:56:55 PM
I need your opinion about having bitcoin for payments in online games, it is good or nah?

Using bitcoin as payments for in-game items and upgrades is very useful since many people are capable of technology devices though bitcoin and online games are done by computers.

I thinks its very efficient for me as a gamer and a bitcoin user to have a transaction or payment like that.

Bitcoin is the best answer for that sir. To corroborate what you said, here's what Bitpay said on a blog post about Bitcoin in relation to the world's dominant game server like Steam and i quote "While more users are coming online in these countries, traditional payment options like credit cards often aren't available. As the internet's universal currency, Bitcoin will allow Steam to easily reach gamers in every market around the world without the high fees or the risk of chargeback fraud that come with card payments."

Well, that sounds really nice and a major advantage to gamers, right?
827  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why Bitcoin is better than Cash. on: October 14, 2017, 11:47:39 PM
What are the reasons, why people use Cash or Credit Cards / ATM / Banks?

Look at the benefits of bitcoin.

* Works online 100%, 100%transparent for private and commercial use. Total control of private or public money for it's holder or holders, investors, governments etc.
* As It's works online there no need of expensive steel safes or bank deposits to keep your money safe. Any password or time code can be used.
* No fees. Unlike cash, hasn't 2%-3% of inflation every single year.
* Accepted for Food Shopping & Micro payments via electronic card.
* 0 confermations time, with introduction of "instant pay" function.
* 0 exchange risks in use of proper securities and competent insurance.
* any entrepreneurs is able to understanding of the value of payment.
* No need for pay terminal for small businesses. For small entrepreneurs it's a high expense of 70 bucks every month.
* Theoretically it's would not be needed to have an expensive licensed cash register, for small entrepreneurs, as every transaction is totally transparent. So cases of black money flow would be easily found and proven.
* Banking and gambling. No need of any verification for CFD,Stock,Currency or gambling services.



One good thing about digital currencies that i think you missed to mention is its transnationality which means that there are no boundaries to Bitcoin or alt coins allowing seamless transactions across nations with a ledger getting maintained at the backend.
828  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin, is it worth spending time collecting it? on: October 14, 2017, 11:06:40 PM
That's the privilege but we should learn to invest so we can earn more, when we are active here we can learn a lot of learning to improve our earning
and we should try that into action, it's necessary to risk but when the risk is big for sure the reward is also big.

I so agree with this sir and that is really my plan time comes when i have enough money to invest in bitcoin. I received emails and calls before about an investment site where trading is done by their so called smart-system that always puts you in a win-win situation.
I am so sure i am gonna put myself in their database soon and just wait for my invested money to grow 100% as what they claimed. I know that's how much risk it takes to invest in bitcoin.
829  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Being Unemployed Drives People to go to Bitcoin on: October 13, 2017, 11:15:45 AM
Yes because bitcoin gives opportunities for unemployed people. But how about those who are unemployed people and don't even have any access to the cyberworld like in some countries around the world?
I think it's a very nice if everyone around the world has a job, IMO.
830  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Do you agree with idea "Bitcoin bank" ? on: October 13, 2017, 10:37:05 AM
Why do we need "Bitcoin bank" where in fact we already have bank in the forms of web based wallets that are reliable and secure for a long time? Well, not unless if all those wallets will have bad issues that would destroy their reputations to its users would then be the best reason to shift to that "Bitcoin bank" with no ounce of hesitation.
831  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is this a sign??? on: October 13, 2017, 10:29:32 AM
it is indeed a very good sign if you knew about bitcoin just yesterday. It's telling you to do something about what you knew about it. It's time to invest or time to be here in this forum. You can take it or you can leave it. Smiley
832  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin, is it worth spending time collecting it? on: October 13, 2017, 10:09:54 AM
Is it worth spending time to collect Bitcoin rather than having a daily job? What I mean is that can bitcoin be more economical? Has it ever happened that people lose their investment value rather than benefit from spending it on bitcoin?

Different people have different ways in spending their time in bitcoin (be it investing on it or simply joining bounty campaigns here). Like me, i enjoyed my time spending here since it's economical in the sense that i earn even without investing money.
833  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How strong is Bitcoin compared to others cyptocurrency? on: October 13, 2017, 09:55:47 AM
I think dumping your money into bitcoin is a good idea that would defy the literal meaning of "dump". By just looking at the chart, bitcoin is undeniably keeps its market value rising which brings reality to some who predicts that its value will reach 5K before this year ends.
But i don't think its the right time to invest bitcoin today when its value is too high. Cheesy
834  Other / Off-topic / Re: What wallets do you use? on: October 13, 2017, 09:41:24 AM
I am using web-based and hardwallet depending on its purpose. I used MEW at https://www.myetherwallet.com/ for most of the time since almost of the campaign here uses ERC20 tokens. My second wallet is a Waves platform wallet at https://waveswallet.io/ and is used in some campaigns that would ask for a Waves address. For my hardwallets, i got  them only because of some airdrops that i participated before.
835  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: BEST NEWCOMER TOKEN IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS!! CAST YOUR VOTE!! on: October 13, 2017, 09:22:31 AM
If you feel a token should be included in the list please let me know. (No coins).

Cast your vote people, let your voice be heard. If you vote "other", please let us know which one.

Thank you for voting!

While HOWL got the most of votes, eBTC is not leaving away from the spotlight. So i think eBTC is undeniably one of the best newcomer tokens in the last few months. I got some of these tokens from an airdrop a couple of days ago and it pumped for about 300%+ reaching its market value in nearly 1 dollar per coin before it fall back down to its base value at .02 USD.

Unfortunately, i don't have gas on that time when its value reaches its peak and now, HODLing is the only that thing i can do for now until i have enough gas to trade my eBTC.
836  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How long since you entered the crypto market on: October 13, 2017, 09:11:36 AM
Just curious about the people on this forum. There seem to be a lot of newbies around, like myself. So tell me: how long have you been in the crypto market?

I am just new in crypto currency for about 2 months now but i have received already some tokens from my previous campaigns that im in. Some were coming from an airdrop but nothing of them have traded in the market yet for the reasons of HODLing these coins in hopes that its value would rise in a later time. Some were not yet available in the market too.
837  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How to avoid ICO scam on: October 13, 2017, 09:03:37 AM
For me, background check matters most. Why not have a research about the team's profile from a reliable source like LinkedIn? Also try to read first their White Paper and/or their website. And with that, that's the time to decide whether you will invest or not in their ICO.
838  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: POW tokens : Frequently asked questions on: October 13, 2017, 08:50:05 AM
A new coin that i received from one of the airdrops that i have participated. Its only 20 POS but i never thought its base value would reach 1$+ since it was listed in the market. And recently, i just missed the 2nd round of the airdrop. Hopefully, i can join the next airdrop and i think that this coin will have  better future in the next days to come.
839  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: bitcoin gold token want to buy on: October 13, 2017, 08:40:11 AM
Hi, i hear ICO is start for bitcoin gold,

can someone guide me how to buy bitcoin gold tokens?

anyone have idea about it

regards

Bitcoin Gold is actually the result of Bitcoin hardfork. It's like a clone to the Bitcoin but with new functionalities like making invalid block/transaction valid again and vice versa. So if you have a Bitcoin already, that means you will also receive Bitcoin Gold.
I never heard of an ICO about Bitcoin Gold too but i have once joined an airdrop for Bitcoin Gold instead which turns to be a scam because i received nothing from it. It's just a pure SCAM.
840  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Gold on: October 12, 2017, 09:16:35 AM
I'm not really convinced about Bitcoin Gold but maybe i'm wrong. I'm curious what you think about Bitcoin Gold so feel free to vote or share your opinion here.

I don't care about it, anyway. Is it the result of Bitcoins hardfork? So confusing why hardfork has to be done when in fact bitcoin is stable at this time and seems to last for a long time. I also heard about airdrop about bitcoin gold and actually joined in the airdrop but nothing really happens.
