1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin as Ransom on: November 07, 2017, 03:13:48 PM
What if you had, let's say....5000 Bitcoins in your custody and suddenly someone demanded it as a ransom in exchange for someone very important to you, would you make the exchange?
If I had this much money - I guess I'll have ways to earn more or have other valuable assets, I'll pay.

Hoping to see your terminals in restaurants soon!

I like self-service a lot and restaurants are really in a bad need of this - people going around to just transfer information is not the way it should be in the Information Age.

Waiters taking orders may be a good service for some, but not for me. Bringing food to customers is another thing, I don't yet feel as comfortable with drone delivery to the table right before me Smiley

This depends on your coin of choice. It's unlikely for most altcoins that you can exchange them to regular currency directly or buy anything.

The most general way is if coin is listed at exchange - you can exchange it there to BTC/ETH and buy something with those or exchange them to USD, your options for exchange to USD depend on your country of residence.

Some coins have in-built ability to be of use in the developers' system or already have shops where you can buy with them directly and/or exchange to USD.

What are your nearest plans? I see the ICO date, but apart from it? Like I see the website was renewed - are there more such updates to be expected in the nearest time?
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Russia starting ‘CryptoRuble’ !!!!!!!!!!!!!! on: October 19, 2017, 02:04:41 PM
Actually, I don't see CryptoRuble in any major news network. There is an RT article which is quite minor for such news, but I guess we may expect that they get info from the horse's mouth. The way it's worded is disgusting, launching government crypto while outlawing all other.

Is this project only for restaurants?

Each time I see industry-specific projects I always hope that developers are open to more, I think your system can be applied to more than restaurants.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][DOGE] Dogecoin - very currency many coin - v1.10.0 on: October 18, 2017, 03:37:18 PM
Why there are so many people doubting doge here? It's not like doge has some hard to achieve goals like many projects have and the price is greater in 2017 then it was for some time now. I don't say it is the best coin to invest for high gains, but it's not what it is about, is it?

Is this connected to dogecoin is any way? Not that they reserved this name, but they are known, I'll expect some similarities from project taking such similar name.

We need more projects like this, helping to promote crypto. I think it's an excellent way for people to get acquainted with it - in familiar setting and without large investment. Wishing you all the best!
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ICO][ANN] BIOCOIN - INTERNATIONAL BLOCKCHAIN-BASED LOYALTY PLATFORM on: October 13, 2017, 12:38:43 PM
Why did the old topic go to the trash? Why is the address of the new topic not listed on the official sites? Links from official sites lead to a remote topic.
Because uncomfortable questions were asked and removed. I still did not list the missing coins that I bought when testing. My trust in the company is falling.
This is disconcerting. The name of the currency also seems a play on Bitcoin which is not okay for any coin striving to become a major player.
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Who is Satoshi? Why did he hide his identity? on: October 12, 2017, 06:07:02 PM
Satoshi looks like someone with much dedication to his project, considering the amount of Bitcoin that he has, the life he can have with those and that IMO he is not using much of those as he would be much more likely to be exposed if he did.

P.S. I guess Satoshi may be a woman, just find using gender neutral pronouns attracting too much attention. Number-of-people-neutral pronouns even more so  Smiley
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What if all the big banks owned all the bitcoin? on: October 11, 2017, 02:03:16 PM
Then the banks will be using it between themselves I guess, because they own all of it. And there will be little reason to buy it from them.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Best and safest way to store passwords? on: October 11, 2017, 01:59:09 PM
You can store password via software, e.g. Keepass, if you have many passwords. The best way is not to store it anywhere outside your head - make a long password that's easy to remember, e.g. "no1@thisforumcanguessmypassword". If your sentence is random enough then it will be really hard to bruteforce. Making passwords that you can't remember will just require reminders that someone else can find and use.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin Really A Currency or An Asset? on: October 10, 2017, 03:54:10 PM
Bitcoin is valuable for being a currency, so it's a currency. There is a component of long-term investment currently, but people invest in other currencies in a similar way and this does not make them something else.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How many people left their full-time employment to go into Bitcoin? on: October 10, 2017, 03:42:13 PM
Leaving full-time job to trade Bitcoin is risky, same as going into any currency trading. Leaving full-time job to work on a Bitcoin-related project is just moving to another project, Bitcoin is a big market and there is a lot of very real work.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bill Gates Praised the Bitcoins on: October 06, 2017, 03:04:53 PM
Considering his charity campaigns, his support is much more inspiring to me now then when he was just a guy with lots of money.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin money? on: October 05, 2017, 01:00:26 PM
I don't see any argument in the OP that shows that mentioned definition do not apply to Bitcoin. e.g. I don't see how you can disprove that often mentioned "medium of exchange" does not apply to Bitcoin.

There are examples like gold, silver and fiat, but it is unlikely that they implied that they listed everything. Check the history of money, there are many examples that are not gold, silver and fiat. Bitcoin is electronic, but so are credit cards.

Really main point is being medium of exchange and Bitcoin is medium of exchange.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: altcoins for 2-3 years holding! on: October 05, 2017, 11:27:57 AM
Top coins are good for long term. I think you should include the idea that you may need to sell earlier in you plan too and watch the market often anyway, as history of crypto is not very long yet and anything may happen, which is not guaranteed to reach you fast unless you watch it.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Tokens (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][ICO] SOMA - The Social Marketplace on: October 04, 2017, 12:57:46 PM
IMO, users who choose Facebook over "the old platforms" is not the market that can be easily overtaken by a third party. It could be much better if this was integrated with FB, to facilitate this very situation and not creating a whole alternative network. This may work, but I think the idea is too risky at this early point.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][PIRL] POW No premine No ICO on: October 04, 2017, 12:39:20 PM
Website link in OP leads to https://www.pirl.io/ which it is not reachable, I think you should fix it at the website, but on the other hand I see that website is accessible at https://pirl.io/, so maybe at least change the link.
