Madaling paraan?  Sa tingin ko kahit gumawa ka nang constructive or meaningful post kung wala lang nakakapansin sa kapaki-pakinabang na post mo hindi ka din makakakuha nito. Oo makakatulong nga siguro kung malalaman mo kung sino sino ang nagbibigay ng merit at higit sa lahat magbasa talaga para ma-improve yung mga post na ginagawa.

Depende yan kung saan ka nag popost kalimitan. Kung malimit kang nagpopost sa mga mega thread na sandamakmak na ang page na nararapat na talaga i lock then hindi talaga mapapansin yung post mo. Karaniwang nagpopost kasi dun ay mga nag papataas ng posts hanggang sa quota nila sa campaign o kaya nama'y nagpaparank up. Mas magandang pag basehan kung saan ka mag popost ay kung:

1. Nasagot na ba yung post sa ibang threads

2. Page nung thread. Kung alam mo namang 3-5 o higit pa yung page nung thread ay wag na tayong umasang may mamimigay ng merit dun or baka sakali pa na walang makapag lagay ng constructive na post doon pero malaki na doubts ko na may magbabasa pa ng thread na yun.

462  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How to hold coins in 2018 on: May 05, 2018, 05:57:53 PM
How long should we hold coins?
In the past 3 weeks, despite all the risks, many investors have hold a large number of coins such as TRX, XVG, XRP, ADA, etc. ranging from good to bad coins including DGB, DOGE.

Getting back a little bit with the psychology of human beings: we are always afraid but very pleasure when others talk about profit. When some coin prices are falling, you only see the negative things in it: "It will surely keep falling, so itís better to stay away". When it turns back up: "It will plunge again sooner or later?" But when it's high up then: "It will no longer fall".

As an investor, you will have to understand a coin before investing money in it. You should evaluate and consider everything before making the decision to buy and hold for a long term (for 6 months to 1 year , or at least 3 months for the most impatient investors). Because one cycle of increase / decrease of a coin usually lasts for 2 months, understanding coin will give you confidence, psychological preparedness before facing the falling prices

The criteria to assess a coin:
1. General information about that coin
2. The purpose of generating the coin
3. The dev team (do more or say much)?
4. What is the current product? In what stage?
5. Are there existing customers? Potential customers?
6. Vision of future coin? Is it realistic or just expressed in words?
7. Scalability?  Can it be accepted by the public? Is it possible to apply to everyday life?

I spend little time tracking the prices. Most of the time is spent on reading news, evaluating coins to make investment decisions. I also spend only 10-15 minutes on technical analysis (Itís not because I view it as unimportant, Iím just get used to it). As a result, I have bought a lot of coin at a very good price. I bought when you were there saying: how can it increase again. I left you far behind, at present, it is greatly safe for all my investments because my investment value has increased by several to tens of times.

You can say whatever in case of rising price, even when you invest in shitcoin. However, when the price falls this low, my balance seems to keep stable thanks to my calculation and comprehensive knowledge about coins. Once investing in a coin, I strongly believe in its future. I choose the right time to buy more coins without any fear of risk!

So how long to hold coins? The answer is that you go learn more thoroughly and comprehensively about the coins you want to invest in and make your decisions.




Thank you for this quite a valued post. Sharing this post to beginners would be vital because majority of them just see holding as keeping their coins and staying there as their comfort zone. I think they should wake up on their thoughts that holding is also an opportunity to buy more coins rather than just keeping it into their respective wallets. They will be stuck on their own margin of sells once their holding moment is over, while it could be a higher gain before if they had just invested in other coins. I appreciate the criteria you made. I suggest putting up more question guidelines to be included in each for other's to be less dumb-founded on what each criteria means.  Smiley

I don't rely on TA that much as I had posted out in here but most of the time, the spikes and the interval serves like a 50/50 prediction for me that it could go the same spike in the next period. The x and y axis in the graph tells me how the price could extend up or down, but not entirely where it will go exactly. While the market is really unpredictable, I don't take too much data from it. I just see it as a "emotional trigger" although I don't put that much of an emotion in trading  Cheesy.
464  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Hold your ETH until cross 1k on: May 05, 2018, 05:32:49 PM
I won't hold until 1k. I think there is so much to hold for that. ETH is currently making an adjustment for this month and since it isn't so seasonal to dump a bit right now, I think it will extend furthermore this month depending on how regulations of cryptos are happening lately.
465  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Cryptocurrency market to suffer from strong correction on: May 05, 2018, 05:24:42 PM
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies will collapse by 90% within the next 12 months, analysts predict, but those coins that survive this correction are expected to grow tremendously.

On 7 May, US financial regulators, the US Commission on Futures Trading (CFTC) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), will hold a meeting at which they will discuss, whether Ethereum tokens should be classified as securities.

Source: http://www.coinfox.info/news/9391-forecast-cryptocurrency-market-to-suffer-from-strong-correction

You could be right about that collapse anytime, but I doubt that there will be any other coins that can survive that correction none other than Bitcoin. Unless that there is already a coin that is really next to Bitcoin right now, I really mean "next to Bitcoin".

Can we really blame these ICOs though? Who are the people that feeds these money-thirsty idiots anyway? Or who are the really money-thirsty idiots anyway  Roll Eyes ? Well there are no choices for that. Both are money-thirsty. Those people that are looking for good returns without even getting time to investigate where they're planning to throw their money at. And these scammy projects that thinks that they could really get away with these money they got until government plans into regulating all these ICOs soon. Now that scams are being reported in media, we are pushing ourselves to the edge of bans of cryptocurrency because we're continuing to feed these people without any precautionary measures or guidelines or even standards.
468  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Can we take legal action against Bitcoin cheaters.. on: May 05, 2018, 04:55:36 PM
We're currently at a squeezed up issue between government showing their hate towards Bitcoin  through bans and all the scams being done. Government at some countries aren't gonna be able to regulate these scams through legal action, as they already close the doors for Bitcoin itself. In countries like Japan, regulators made their actions through cryptos exchange that are being fraudulent or are too vulnerable. If we could have those kind of regulator soon then I think legal actions could me made anytime.

470  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: how often do you check BTC price and how to cope with stress? on: May 05, 2018, 02:55:36 PM
I check the btc price daily as the usual normal routine for me. It did not bring me stress checking the btc price weekly because I serve my btc for long term hold. So usually if you are a day trader you can check price everytime so expect the fluctuations is extreme it's movement when you invest.

You're either really optimistic on the price too much or you've been trading quite a lot of time. For starters in trading, it would be a lot of stress for them to see the price under their expectations. I ain't a big-time trader that gains so much, in fact I am really limited at tradings that I rarely day-trade. But as I see the price gaps it has been moving around the time-being, the + and -ive fluctuations doesn't really get me that much. The price point I always see only lies in two points:

- Bear trend, where I see an opportunity to buy more coins to hold at and gain from it after the bearish trend is over

OR

- Bull trend, where I see an opportunity to buy more OTHER coins catching up to the price I sold at.

It is both an equal opportunity for me. I don't see why should I exit in trading because of the stress. I don't see anybody yet getting stressed in high price because they can't buy more coins to hold at.  Roll Eyes
471  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: How to start trading? on: May 04, 2018, 04:08:29 PM
Basically find the most demanding coin right now and that will be your first base then go small when you're now selling and don't sell it all in one go, you could also trade that into another demanding coin. Remember that you're still starting NOT exiting, extend your capability of selling more different coins in the market. When you're on high in few coming months, I really think you're gonna be on a big-time quite a while that time. Watch the markets behavior.
472  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Which is more profitable trading exchange or mining and why?? on: May 04, 2018, 03:59:02 PM
I think trade is more reasonable. because mining requires some time and cost. good deals in trade.
The costs of mining are fixed. if the price is low you can be harmful. in trade you can save money.

There are so many things you need to consider if you really want to go into mining and that would determine the profitability of the activity itself.

Mining can be as profitable as trading and does not require much effort than setting up your rig. However, when considering the type of gadget for which type of coin as well as electricity, this is what makes the difference.

True. There are countries that have electrical issues not just in the technical issues but also in prices at some areas where mining won't be so much profitable in fact it might even over burden the basic electrical expenses other than mining. It really depends also in the temperature of your country. I would prefer trading as a safe play but it takes so much time to get good trades rather than mining that you will leave it running in the background and check it occasionally.
473  Economy / Economics / Re: let us promote BITCOIN on: May 04, 2018, 03:22:35 PM
I think not just here in this thread we should advertise /promote bitcoin by showing some positive feedback .we need to spread it also all around the internet such facebook, twitter, instagram  and etc.  So that more people will see.

 I do promote  bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies or tokens in other social media like twitter and facebook. its also my way to earn token by joining in social media campaign of ICO projects. i believe in bitcoin cause bitcoin is the first decentralized cryptocurrency where it is the center of any crptocurrencies. in our country bitcoin is supported by our government so being a bitcoin earner or token collector is legal.

Almost all people seems to know that but it isn't "you" who really promotes it. It is the bounty managers who are allowing their project to be advertised in social media. The central control of advertisement isn't in you but from them, they would stop it if they want to.

Most of crypto is popular and well know by now that they dont need to be promoted. From my perspective only token need to be promoted now most popular coin are well know in both popularity and price also in demand. Token are now only thing that need to be promoted for some share of the market.

True. It doesn't need that hard of marketing strategy to be promoted in the public. I also agree that tokens add up the taste of it to become more booming in the media. Facebook and Google banning it won't pretty much affect it but it causes emotional dissatisfaction to other investors causing them to either be careful or just simply quit cryptos.
474  Economy / Economics / Re: bitcoin in developing countries on: May 04, 2018, 02:52:27 PM
But there is a big problem there. I have read many news regarding this on sisal media and electronic media. And every time they said, all such governments of developing countries have banned bitcoins with immediate effect because in their point of view, these decentralized coins can reduce the tax paying from public as they are decentralized and canít be traced down.

Firstly, in most cases Bitcoin isn't actually banned, but just the practice of exchanging crypto to fiat and vice versa.

Secondly, governments missing out on taxes is just nonsense. If there was no crypto, there would be no additional crypto tax income for governments, so what exactly are they missing? To add; them getting rid of crypto actually makes them lose out on additional tax income. If you regulate the market as government, you WILL get tax income from crypto. It might not be that all people suddenly start paying tax, but what's better, 20% of the crypto traders pay tax or 0% of the traders?

People here need to accept and understand that people in developing countries are mostly poor for a reason, and will remain that for a reason. They aren't supposed to progress further. Poverty, just like debt, means you as authority effectively control everyone fitting in these categories, and let that control be what authorities desperately plan to hold firm.
It is a little bit depressing but I think you're right, those that are poor are very unfortunate to have been born poor and because of that they are going to be denied a lot of opportunities that could help them to change their fate, there are those that are able to get out of that poverty but people like that could have succeeded in almost any scenario that you gave them because they have that kind of drive.

But government could turn the tides with that situation. They could use cryptos at some point that they'll be making an investment program where poor people could invest into crypto with their support by cents or few quarters to start it up and let it grow for a while. It is not the real thing to make them grow their economic status but it could help them slightly to moderate.
475  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: what are the common challenges for bitcoin user? on: May 03, 2018, 05:37:03 PM
the only challenge that i can think of which really matters is adoption. and that is not something you can fix, it is something that is fixed on its own with time.
as time goes by more people find out about bitcoin and more of them start using it. some are merchants and some are users and they all make the ecosystem grow.

Adoption covers it all in my opinion, like adoption is both being halted and being promoted throughout the time because of these bans and regulations happening. Adoption, when we put it in a flow chart, is like the highest or the top thing that Bitcoin really needs to get into. It isn't just the innovation of coins, stabilizing the network, forks, and price movement that challenges the Bitcoin as an investment and currency. I agree to the user I quoted.
476  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Stop Listening To False News... on: May 03, 2018, 05:12:22 PM
You can't tell them what to do. Not all people have reasons in their heads and it becomes replaced by emotions instead that's why people panic in cryptocurrency's news. They don't have the time to understand all these things because maybe crypto isn't really their ship after all and they're just using it for sideline and they will quit on it anytime. Those news you stated weren't really that long time ago, but these were the part of the majority of the driving factors of the price movement.
477  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: How do whales mainpulate the market? on: May 02, 2018, 05:56:23 PM
The large burst in demand caused by the whales entering the market is what concludes it the most. Although they're not really the 100% driving factor of the market, they take the major effect into the price. There are some certain whales that allocates their investment quite "fair" in different coins and that causes a bit of a mass grow in price because of how large their investment could be in scale.
478  Economy / Economics / Re: How will crypto go long term? on: May 02, 2018, 05:49:36 PM
I think you're kinda off with the word "regulation" and you're trying to imply "ban" instead. What we meant by "regulate" in crypto these days are the narrowing of usage of crypto but not totally eliminating it from the hands of the investors. In fact that there are taxes being imposed like in Arizona, this is the regulation we're talking about. Total ban is a total different matter. Crypto will go even more farther, as long as it is getting the adequate regulation.
479  Economy / Economics / Re: A government can create a cryptocurrency ? on: May 02, 2018, 05:42:37 PM
Would "WE" invest in government's cryptos? When we talk about government making things for us, it is like we only have one choice but to utilize it. It still depends if government hate cryptos, then they decided to make their own coins for us, or they support it even further and they decided to make their own coin for our convenience to invest in more coins in the cryptocurrency. For me, it always depends.
480  Economy / Economics / Re: PURPOSE OF TOKEN? on: May 02, 2018, 05:40:10 PM
Tokens given from the airdrops or bounties are one way that projects do for promotion. It is a good marketing strategy. It is not entirely a new coin as what we can really exchange almost anywhere.
