1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How to protect the market and the investors from manipulations of the whales ? on: January 01, 2019, 02:59:42 PM
It has been observed several times that the  cryptomarket boomed and after a short span of time it started to fall on the grounds with similar intensity .Similar patterns have also been observed in other markets for example the prices of oil touched the peak and nosedived ,share market prices, property prices shoot up and down with same speed .It is not limited up to a one or two commodity but the whole basket of the  commodity market is not spared resulting in exploitation of the small investors .In my opinion these big whales  jump from one market to another and not stay in one market and earn huge profit  .Technology can catch them if these are the same persons or group of persons who are  harming the interest of the crypto investors is a matter of study .Do you agree with my point of view.

There are so many ways to protect your own things inside of this decentralize world. You should try to find it yourself because anything could happen.
2  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Traders, what are your views in 2019. on: January 01, 2019, 02:37:41 PM
Firstly,  I will like to congratulate all of us that started last year and today according to my country calendar we are in new year in health and prosperity.  I wish all of us traders well.
From all indications the cryptocurrencies market and bitcoin in particular has not seen to be in the bottom yet and the bears are more ready to pull down the price further.  We don't even know accurately were the bottom is and according to some speculators bitcoin might go below $3000 before we can see good recovery.
My question is this: were did you think Bitcoin's price will be at this time next year and What are your thoughts and technical reasons why bitcoin will not go beyond $3000? Your views will be appreciated.  Thank.

My views for this year is to lay low untill the markets gets better. But I guess you can still trade sometime and find a good trade from the market with this kind of situation.

Predictions 2019: 3 potential triggers for the next Bitcoin bull run

So far, the price of bitcoin has decreased, many people ask questions, what catalyst is needed to trigger the next increase?

1.   The rollout of a security token ecosystem
2.   BAKKT dan munculnya pasar berjangka institusional baru
3.   SEC approval of a Bitcoin ETF

What do you think about this.

I agree Of all the potential catalysts floating close to the surface, the general consensus is that these three are the most likely candidates.

A lot of people are really waiting for those to happen that are hoping that it could really help the market to recover a lot from it down side movement.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Let me be clear to you, this is not a Bear Market! on: January 01, 2019, 12:07:03 PM
for all outsiders that enter this,

you have to understand that the current claim that bitcoin suffers from a "bear market" is absolutely wrong.

the bitcoin founders in their unlimited greed tried to push the price as high as possible, but ultimately wasted, aquired all possible support they were able to obtain.

without potential new kapital to attract they are now in a stuck situation, as they cant attract new capital anymore to push the value of their beloved "bitcoin"

this stagnation combined with the automatic liquidity loss (miner electricity and infrastructure bill) leads to a slow drain out of capital for bitcoin.

but thats not all, they also are trapped in a death spiral, as people that use bitcoin as a currency, will pay it to someone who doesnt share their "investor confidence"

through the existing deathspiral the bitcoin "earners" then sell their bitcoin in the market again which leads to a continueing collapse in value.

the whole story about "bear market" is just wishthinking or worse deliberate satisfaction, or moral stabilisation procedures to keep intact their "community".

from a socioeconomic perspective of bitcoins situation

according to logic, you are never in a bearmarket, but in reality in a support loss spiral


It is obviously a bear market to me since it has really dumped way lower than the peak. But I guess if you try to see all of the chart from where it has started then you can really say that it isn't a bear market.
5  Economy / Economics / Re: McAfee Says Crypto Mining Malware Increased 4,000% in 2018 on: December 31, 2018, 07:05:47 PM
The 2018 McAfee Labs Threat Report in December has shown a massive increase in crypto mining malware activity this year that is in the 4,000% region.

The report shows that the sharp rises began in the final quarter of 2017 through the first quarter of 2018. During the second quarter of the year, the figures dropped and then jumped again between the second and third quarter,

The figures have shown that crypto-criminals are now targeting miners with new cryptojacking malware. Crypto mining malware rose 71% in Q3 of 2018 alone according to McAfee. Criminals have been targeting those who use “routers or IoT devices such as IP cameras or video recorders as crypto miners” because they lack security and have weak CPUs.

McAfee also discussed a few examples of how crypto-criminals were exploiting the users of messenger services such as Telegram, Discord, and Slack to infect their computers with mining malware.


For me, McAfee really doesn't know anything about crypto. He just do his job as an influencer to hype people up for a coin and many people also follows him for that.
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is now Bitcoin being that was supposed to be? on: December 31, 2018, 10:58:53 AM
When I read original White Paper, there is only mention one purpose Bticoin to be "Electronic Cash System", "Electronic Payment System" no words as "Electronic Currency", "Cryptocurrency", "Be like own bank". When I am reading White Paper it is obvious to me that Bitcoin was to be something like PayPal but works without censorship and permission-less. But in some time narration were changed to "be like own bank", "global currency" and so on, this sounds like fraud from people that was bag holders in early time of Bitcoin

For me, Bitcoin is only used for some people to gain a lot of money in a easy way and also for manipulating everything that is inside this market. A lot of people already took advantage of this and we also need to do that.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Crypto fell into wrong hands in December 2017 on: December 29, 2018, 10:51:49 PM
Most of the people who joined the crypto community at the later part of 2017, especially December were not any real crypto investors. They just heard about the booming prices and decided to join and also make profit. They don't know the potentials of the blockchain technology and the future it holds and that is why now that prices are down, they have all left the market and its left the real crypto enthusiasts. They are those who are seriously doing panic selling over the markets

Of course, it is just all about the hype that happened back then, and a lot of people already got out of the market and the one that are left are those people who awaits the new rally.

Please suggest me some good token.  Which hsve low possibility risk. 

Honestly, people here in the forum would just give you some answers related to the one they had invested it and that is not suggesting buy hyping.
9  Economy / Economics / Re: What is the reason of this sudden decline in BTC price? on: December 29, 2018, 10:26:59 PM
Every passing month we hope that the cryptocurrency will go towards stability but our moral goes down whenever the prices plummet suddenly.

Is the price ever gonna get stable? Are there any ways we could make it stable without centralizing the system?

I'm pretty sure that if you are a good trader you would really know it by now by seeing the charts and knowing where part are we are now.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Waves knock out Ethereum on: December 27, 2018, 11:32:08 AM
At the bearish market, the waves steadily hold their position, and when price of Bitcoin is falling , the price of Waves is rising! The functionality of the Waves is much higher than Eth. Usability is better, fast transactions, own stock exchange, powerful mobile applications for Android and iOS. And there will be a lot of interesting features. This is the time to buy waves.

So, can the Waves take the place of the Ethereum? Yes, and it will happen soon  Smiley

I would like to know the opinion of the forum! Thanks

Ethereum will be more than that when it starts mooning and everyone will look for Ethereum and a lot of people who bough Ethereum at a state like this will be rewarded.
11  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: minimise possible losses in trading on: December 27, 2018, 11:10:50 AM
I read multiple posts and threads about people loosing money with trading. My opinion is that every single person can become a profitable trader and you do not need to be a specialised trader to make consistent daily profits.

Most of the traders or 'wannabe' traders loose money because of several reasons.

- Enter the markets at the wrong moment.
- Put too much in a single position that doesn't leave them balance to enter the market at lower points.
- get caught by greed.

Sometimes when reading through posts and replies I get confused. Some things I very often read.

- no money can be made during a bear market situation.
- Making consistent daily profits is impossible
- educate yourself well before starting to trade
- you must follow news, trends and project updates
- ......

Then I probably am the most atypical trader in the world.

First of all I want to mention I do not give a sh*t about any coin, I never spend time on reading the crypto news, trends or updates. I do not care about any coin or project. I even do not care about blockchain technology in general.

Do not get me wrong, I am a strong crypto believer and 30% of my personal holdings are in crypto but I didn't invested a single dime of my own money in long term holdings. I only used profits I made with trading during the previous 3-4 years to invest in a long term portfolio.

But I approach Crypto as my personal cow that is providing milk (lots of milk) on a daily basis.

My trading

Everyone tells people to educate well before starting to trade. Lot of people are using 10s of indicators, draw lines and do 100s of things to analyse the market. Well I don't. The only thing I use for my trading is are the Bollinger bands. It took me exactly 1 hour to learn how to use this strategy and since then I am making money on a daily basis.

Lot of people tell that making consistent profits is impossible. Now I say it is possible. I make an average of minimum 1% profits on a daily basis on my total trading balance. I even managed to let 100€ grow to over 6000€ in 1 year by only using 1 single trading tool or indicator.

My secret is very simple VOLUME!!!!

I always enter the market at a point with the general idea to get out of the market latest 3 hours after I entered. But to be honest in 75% of the cases I even get out of the market within 30 minutes after I entered. This process I do about 50-100 times every single day. I rather take 0.5% profits multiple times a day than just enter the market 3 times in a day and see 2 of the taken positions turn out in a loss and get stuck with that position.

I jump in and out 50-100 times a day with 1-5% of my entire balance per trade. By trading so much volume you can significantly decrease possible losses and can make it possible to close 90-95% of your trading days profitable.
So if people are telling 1% average daily profits is impossible, I tell they are wrong, it is possible.

I do not care about coins, blockchain or developments I only care about making money and that is what I am doing.

I am not an expert trader, dont use lots of indicators, dont do analysis but I am making plenty of money.

And guess what? The sh*t I am doing seems to work.

I moved to Spain 4 years ago and since they the only thing I do is making money with crypto trading. Since then I can make a daily living from trading even if I am not a well educated or expert trader. I trade A LOT and very efficiently.
Lot of people dream to make a living from trading. All I can say is that it is possible even if you have not that much to start your journey to achieve the ultimate goal. But I am sure everyone can make a living from trading. But depending on the amount you can start with will determine how long it will take until you reach the point of the ability to make a living from your trading profits.

So do not get demotivated. If you have a dream and a plan you can achieve everything you want. I did it and know everyone can do it.

It can even be done with only a starting balance of 100-200€ starting balance. One of my friends started his journey together with me with only 200€ to start with. Now after 2 years he is making 500-1000€ profits monthly without ever adding extra money. He just stick to the plan. He set his goal to become a fulltime trader by beginning of 2020 and I am 100% sure he will succeed, because he sticks to the plan.

So people if you have a dream, just stick to your plan. Set up daily , weekly , monthly and yearly goals and do not change your plan until you reached your dream.


It is possible to minimise your losses to a bear minimum by using the right method. And making 1% average daily profits are possible

There are not wrong and right moment to enter the market. You just have to see whether that would be a good possible outcome to enter and also exit when you feel it's wrong.
12  Economy / Economics / Re: Will BTC defeated in 2019? on: December 27, 2018, 11:02:59 AM
Crypto currency seems to cold down these days and many people have lost faith in the past few months...

People find most token are fake indeed, what they have was just a whitepaper.

I think most of them will die in the next year.

But what about Bitcoin?

As the first and the most influential one, Bitcoin is still weak with numerous restrictions.

Maybe it will fall into the ground due to the political factors, or beaten by other token which is better.


Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are starting to recover for now and I know that it will still going to go up later on when things finally comes better.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin ATM's on: December 27, 2018, 10:54:45 AM
Anyone here use a Bitcoin ATM anywhere? What was your experience like with them?

I saw these two articles that talk about the popularity of these ATM's and how much they're growing every day.


My other question is if people are worried about the security of these things.

Doesn't need to use an ATM for Bitcoin anyways, so we just have to look for another way of getting Bitcoin if ATMs are not in our place and would really love to buy some.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why Africans Are Not Embracing Blockchain - Crypto ! on: December 24, 2018, 12:00:50 AM
Over the Past 9 years since Satoshi and his team introduce bitcoin and Blockchain Concept there are many challenge  due to government policies and  whole allot but Asian , European , Americans , Arabians they are  embracing it because they believe  its the future . 99.99%  of ICO are from Asia , America , Europe and Arab .  0.01 percent are from  Africa upon all there resources where  we need funds to manufacture still we are out of the Game ? Why Please tell me what you think !!   

Obviously people there doesn't even know anything of having an internet, then how would they even use a cryptocurrency? They even sometimes lack to have FIAT.
15  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: John McAfee and his promises. on: December 23, 2018, 11:41:46 PM
Do you remember McAfee's statements that he will eat his penis if the price of bitcoin is not $ 1 million?) I urge everyone not to forget about it! This jester many times confused the community with his idiotic statements, in June he predicted bitcoin for 15 thousand, advertised scam. Don't believe him)

McAfee is just full of hyped for everyone who also wants to believe him. He just have made a public apology for what he did? Lame.
16  Economy / Economics / Re: Very stable BTC dominance on: December 23, 2018, 10:53:31 PM
Since the dump from 6500$ (and actually since sept.) btc dominance has been very stable, around 53%.
However it appears previous bear market phases always had an impact on the indicator.

How do you explains this at all?

/edit: details
Since september Bitcoin went from $6500 to $5500
Then 5500 to 4200
Then 4200 to 3700
Then 3700 to 4300
Then 4300 to 3300

BTC and the whole cryptomarket are falling absolutely proportionately. It remains at 53%
Previously it wasn't the case. Dec 13 it fell from 96% to 87%. Strong movements in the markets pretty much always translated in a different dominance afterwards.

Note that the absolute value of btc dominance (53%), high/low, is not my point at all.
Also speculations on BTC aren't the point, it's only about understanding the current stability of btc dominance, if it has any meaning.

When times comes right and people will realize that bull run is coming again, then a lot of investors will eventually come and it will make the BTC dominance spike up again.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Don't Ask "Time To Buy" "HOLD or SELL" "Right time to entry" on: December 23, 2018, 10:45:06 PM
Hello my name is Mobasher , This is my first post at . I am new on this crypto planet . And searched google "The Best Forum for Cryto currency" and guess what found this awesome place. After entering my first board was "Bitcoin Discussion" ,  There i saw some repeatative questions and answers. Yes i am a newbie. But i have average knowledge about the market environment.

But i found some questions here like - (I am not saying these are too silly questions to ask)

Time to buy?
Token goes down. Wait or sell?
Hold or sell ?
What is the best time to enter the market ?

I think these questions got no real answers. If there is any regulated answer it has to be dependent on that situation. There is no exact time to enter market. No body could say this is the best time to enter the market. Yes you could gather information all around and detect the future by analyzing the token's characteristics. It is never past the point where it is possible to put effort and capital into cryptocurrency, in light of the fact that everybody comprehends that the development of cryptocurrency is inescapable. It is a long process.

Actually we all have knowledge about the market. But for mental stability and satisfaction we use these terms. To get releif .


After opening account i could not post here , i don't know why ? (May be the server was down) People stills fighting for Merit in the Meta thread i saw. How to get merits guys ? Can anyone help me ?

That is quite correct. And this serves a lesson to all the people here inside the crypto space to do some research for themselves and find a way to get their answers.
18  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Which is better option for trading Bitcoin or stocks ? on: December 20, 2018, 08:41:02 AM
Hi guys , can you tell me which is better option for trading Bitcoin or stocks and how

Stocks can be a good thing to trade with since it has never had an option to lose all of your funds in a year of waiting like crypto.
19  Economy / Economics / Re: Canada warns its citizens to only buy marijuana with cash on: December 20, 2018, 08:07:50 AM

In my opinion these are quite interesting news, as we often talk here how all the governments only want to replace cash, because they want to monitor all transactions, but it seems to be more complex than that. Privacy can protect people from criminals and malicious outside actors, and I think the benefits are far more important than some small number of criminals getting away with crimes.

In this light, crypto can find its place in economy as "digital cash", and some governments might officially recognize it.

Who wants to wastes their coins to some weed? They could really buy it with cash only and it has nothing wrong with that.
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: HOW CAN BITCOIN BE ACCEPTED TO BE USED AS A PAYMENT METHOD GLOBALLY? on: December 20, 2018, 06:18:45 AM
In as much as we all wish to help fulfill the dream of Satoshi Nakamoto in using BTC to make transactions in our daily lives we must look critically at the high volatility of BTC. Come to think of it people, how many of us in here would wish to purchase an item worth $500 US right now when this same amount of BTC was worth over $1000 US last year. If we are able to solve volatility issues with BTC then trust me the acceptance of BTC will go viral. I just wish there were some real holders in the cryptospace!

As for now, we still can't use Bitcoin as a payment method because its price is still not stable. Would you like to accept something expensive that would become cheap later on without you knowing when?
