Crypto is my favorite for paying for services such as buying mobile data and airtime. It is very easy to use and with it you have no fear as you can use it anytime you want. Just like Fiat

There are so many university I've stumbled upon that are offering even scholarship for block chain technology but most of them are from Europe. University in Denmark, Switzerland, Sweden and many more
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why people debate so much about BTC value? on: January 16, 2020, 09:21:25 PM
The reason is because that is the major reasons for investing in crypto. After a lot of people see how the price of the coin went up long time ago, it has created an unrest as people believe till today that btc will pump one day as it was some years back
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Do you go to blockchain/crypto events? on: January 16, 2020, 09:15:38 PM
Does anyone go to events? And if you do, what do you like most about them?
Attended one in 2019, it is about the potential of block chain technology in banking sector. I see a lot of people were really happy to hear the way block chain technology can improve transaction with less cost but little or nothing was discussed about the crypto. I think they are only focusing on the tech and not the crypto currencies

No one is talking about BNB  Grin. It is part of the few coins that make a good profit last year. Although BNB might require proper monitoring and buying when the price is cool. I am very optimistic Binance will have at least 2 exchange offerings this year. And if this comes, the price of BNB always go higher. I am just talking from experience

And to add to what the Op has written, avoid investing in IEO on some exchanging platforms that have histories of promoting scam projects. Few of them include Latoken, Dobi, Exmarket.

Well, I am not optimistic that XRP will reach $2 or $3 as you have predicted but XRP is another decent crypto you can be sure you will make a profit if you invest in it for the long term. I have seen XRP making up to around 50% gain in the past and when you study the graph you will see the potential in the coin
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Who Says Bear Market is BAD? on: January 14, 2020, 03:03:44 PM
bear market is only good for traders with great experience and dedicate alot of time daily. Casual trader will surely regret if he/she trade in bear market unless you buy some top tier coin when the price is deep with confidence that even if you dont make profit, at least you cannot make loss at the long run
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Do scam ICOs really taken to the court? on: January 14, 2020, 02:59:23 PM
it depends on some factors such as the countries and also maybe the business is legally registered. If you check very well, you will see that most ICO that eventually turn to the scam are not legally registered in the country it claims to be operating from and many of them are not from country like Canada, UK, Australia, and other related countries

According to CipherTrace The cost of robberies, scams and fraud had already reached more than $ 4 billion by the end of the third quarter of 2019,

I'm not advocating crime, but has anyone ever seen a report that shows the estimated value of how many theft involving Hyip/ponzi sites have? What is the value of theft involving hyip/ponzi sites? Credit cards are also theft targets, this is not just a problem of the crypto world, it is a general problem. If there is money or anything of value, then scammers will be around. In the case of the crypto world people need to do more research on the projects that will invest money.
It is true that the issue of scam and theft target is a general phenomenon but it is no longer news that most crime committed through card theft can be trace and almost daily we hear of people being convicted of these crimes but scam emanated from crypto-investment and trading are difficult to trace and that is the reason most of those ICO Scammers are not caught. ones they scam investors, they delete and change the name of their telegram page and nobody heard from them again. Most HYIP/PONZI schemes are now using crypto as payment options to avoid them being caught
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: End to the Craig Wright FUD in less than a month - 3rd Feb 2020 on: January 14, 2020, 02:42:33 PM
Since we all know he is not satoshi, and he isn't going to prove anything, well then it's safe to say that all the lies and deception is all about to end. I do not know why Craig keeps up with this, but it's actually good this stopped, while majority of bitcoiners ignore his fud, there are some who may fall for his lies and be deceived by his fake claims, let's see what his comes up with before the ultimatum date, though it surely wouldn't be anything tangible to prove he's Satoshi, because he is NOT.
I am just curious about what will happen to him after the judge discovers he cant prove that he is satoshi. is he going to be jailed ?. anyway, it is becoming interesting on much energy the world is putting into getting the real identity of satoshi. Hopefully, another person will still come out one day to tell the fibble tales of how he created bitcoin and went to hide somewhere.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: If People Just Stopped Doing Bitcoin & Crypto on: January 14, 2020, 02:28:57 PM
But it is the miners that make crypto transaction to get completed. If there is no miner and people stop trading and making use of crypto, definitely crypto will not survive but the truth is that no single person has control over others people activities meaning people can not stop mining the crypto and trading will not stop.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Scam Projects and Bounty . Way forward?? on: January 09, 2020, 11:06:16 AM
You can not overcome scam in crypto. In fact this contribute a lot to what is keeping people away from investing in crypto. More than 90% of project listed on BTT for ICO or IEO in 2019 end up unsuccessful or turn to scam. These has caused serious problems denting the image of some top project managers here on BTT
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: How i presently feel about bounties on: January 09, 2020, 11:01:34 AM
It seem you still have little experience in bounty hunting. Amount of bounty allocation no longer determine the payment success of a bounty. There are many ways now in which project dev cheat hunters. Apart from project that turn to scam, irrespective of the amount allocated. My experience has shown that some dev will end up frustrating hunters in order to give up pursuing their reward. Jinbi, Subaj etc are few of those that have done that with the hunters.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Guys stop investing! Use your brain, please on: January 08, 2020, 03:31:38 PM
The most annoying thing is that many of the lifeless exchange platform have good score on Coinmarketcap especially the Latoken. Last year I wrote a long article warning people to stop investing or even trading on platform such as Dobi and Latoken because they are bad exchange platforms. Later, I discovered that the reason why many project patronise them for IEO is because they already have mutual agreement with themselves about bringing more traders and listing their project on their launchpad with little or no fee. This is how many of them operate including exmarket. When you check Latoken today, it is complete hub for dead and scam project token. Some token listed have not even gotten $10 trading volume since it has been listed.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: John McAfee backs out of his $1 million bitcoin prediction on: January 08, 2020, 03:13:26 PM
It is only people that new in crypto that pay attention to people like McAfee. I have lost regard in him ever since I saw that some project that turn out to be scam are using him to gain popularity. He is just one of those guys that are make furtune for himself that driving and making so many project dev get some investors during those period when people are always eager to look for direction for coin to invest in. Now that the bubble has bursted, he is giving prediction to gather much more needed attention.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin still a people's currency? on: January 08, 2020, 03:07:40 PM
The key subject is "can fiat system collapse". Fiat currency is not like other ecurrencies in the sense every country has a particular paper currency which is developed based on the monetary policy of the country. This is different from bitcoin or any other type of ecurrency that is solely developed by individual or group of people within a decentralized framework. I have no doubt that crypto might witness more adoption in the future but I dont see it as a global currency.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Thoughts about Bitcoin adoption on: January 08, 2020, 03:01:31 PM
It is true, the traditional card trasactions involves alot of processing steps, right from the merchant to the card manufacturer ( Mastercard, VISA etc.) and each stages require confirmation and authentication before completion. However, due to the centralized nature of the system, it is always possible to cancel or withdraw a transaction eventhough it has been completed before and that makes it possible to be able to lift money from customers card in case some fraudulent activities are observed. However, I believe this issue of centralization is what many people dont want because it does not conform to the original framework in which the bitcoin is build on.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Will the price of Altcoin be good in 2020? on: January 07, 2020, 12:22:44 PM
No one knows the trend in 2020 but as long as the crypto investment remain static or decline, I don't think the price will improve. Sadly, the use of blockchain technology is growing every year and that may continue this year but many people are not interested in investing in crypto again. Hopefully if there is bull run, then crypto can witness little pump
