61  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Newbie should trade or not? Please give me idea. on: January 01, 2019, 06:47:19 AM
Not much that I can give for an advice but if you already felt cruelty in earning bulks in stock trading then expect more in here for the reason that you're trading an unstable entity. It's not regulated and it is decentralized so don't expect government to entertain you in case you screw up in trading. Not gonna add up investment in ICOs, since you're talking about trading anyway. Day trading could be a go for you if you're that active within 24 hrs. There's a lot of videos in YT that might help you, but don't expect them to get your rich really quick. I don't know if those paid tutorials were purely legitimate but I had heard from none that it made them rich so I can put in assumption that you shouldn't. Just watch the YT vids for the idea how the ropes go with the trading, but the logic and strategies will be entirely up from your experience. Goodluck!

How can we get people to use bitcoin as a real currency and not just a quick way to get cash as a lot of people seem to do? When I say currency, I mean the literal definition of currency as something that is used as a medium of exchange.
Even online, there are only a few stores who are accepting it as payment.

Well if that means for main currency i think it's impossible to use bitcoin as payment. micro transaction know also needed for some people.
Currency in crypto means is for alternative digital payment that people use daily on the internet or with any digital business.


It's totally impossible, since in the end it will be sold and realized into their own local currency and the profitability of the businesses that allows it depends on the price making it an unstable profit since Bitcoin itself is already an unstable currency. Being an alternative entity for payment method wouldn't hurt that much but it is not advised to be a main one, unless the company that uses it can hold it for a long-term or if they can believe enough that they won't incur a lot of losses in the future.
63  Economy / Economics / Re: welcome bulls , Bye bears on: December 31, 2018, 05:38:18 PM
I think in 2019 the bear will gradually disappear and the bull will come soon. I am optimistic about cryptocurrency that will provide better results in the future.

Optimism won't lead you anywhere than just holding your coin purely. Everything you had heard so far would be the same as being optimistic. I am also being optimistic but pessimistic at the same time so disappointment would be out of the equation. I'll just go outside and take some fresh air while enjoying life, so I would avoid getting depressed over this unstable prices that could ruin my every day. Don't be so into crypto unless you're like into business using one.
Just keep holding what you currently have and leave it there as it is. Buy if you have extra funds from your non-crypto related work, if you still hold that optimistic attitude and rational thoughts.
64  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: How to learn trading? on: December 31, 2018, 04:25:44 PM
Many advice and tips has been giving above and I will said you just need to spend more time in learning and practicing. The trading skills you developed is what will help you to succeed in trading.  Value the trading skills because that put ahead of others.
Actually trading can be learned and can also be done by learning how we do a lot of action and certainly an understanding of the basis of trading itself
Sometimes the skill can be transferred in the way that if you know the trading concept outside cryptocurrency then the idea should be the same almost with cryptocurrency except that you're not dealing with real people directly, but rather with the exchange site. Buying Bitcoin personally is a different matter of discussion, so don't think about that too much. The strategy can be pretty much be known through YT, but I don't think that people will really reveal their utmost secret on how to earn a lot in trading however I know there are pretty much a lot of secrets and strategies. It is like you were only given the frosting and a piece of the cake but there's a lot of it left yet.
65  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: KYC on: December 31, 2018, 03:12:31 PM
All negative opinions about KYC are in fact really correct. Because the market is now in a serious stage of weakness. Surely, now you need to try not to go through KYC processes at all because your data will be under threat.

For an airdrop, as what the OP is stating, is correct.Unless it's like a big-time airdrop that could've known around the world and recognized by the majority, then we don't really need KYC at all. In fact, the KYC processes kinda screws up my email address when I attempted to join one and it was spammed by random offers in other projects that is also crypto-related one. Good thing that I didn't use any of my real addresses that will surely be helpful when these untrusted offers emerge.
If you're looking for an airdrop, no matter how large the sum would be (in fact a large sum for an airdrop is quite suspicious already for a scam), just never give away your personal info. I heard that they were selling those information to others, so better be safe than sorry.
66  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Using bitcoin without internet on: December 31, 2018, 02:36:31 PM

Consider also Korea for being recognized as one of the countries that has the fastest internet around the world. Don't even get me started in the speed of the internet here in my country, as it is currently an issue. Somehow, I think that the possibility of the use of satellites would be high for the third world countries like mine since there isn't new ISP that could even help the issue out. I think the time that the government in certain countries fully acknowledges the use of Bitcoin or any cryptocurrency would lead them to decide in improving the internet speed in the future.
67  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Who's The Loser Here? on: December 31, 2018, 01:37:24 PM
I think those weakhands selling there bitcoin in the cheapest price now if you are true believers of bitcoin keep believing on it and no matters happen bitcoin will comeback to the top when bullish run start.
it is true that only losers sell bitcoin at a cheap price, because they will not believe that the bitcoin will rise again, so those who survive are what we must follow so that we can get a big profit later
Not always mate, selling is not a loser who does not believe in the future of bitcoin, let alone a short term trader must make choices
quickly, and sell at a cheap price is not a bad thing if the other options market get worse
I think the losers here are those who lack plans and awareness on how market works and what its functionalities are. If you lack preparation when you engage in crypto world and the necessary knowledge then you'll get lost with your journey in cryptocurrency. Don't rush on things, be patient, and don't lose hope.
Just direct it to those who sold big-time when the market was down. It's not like preparation in crypto world is continuous meaning that you would need to fully engaged into it. Bitcoin is still growing and developing. Who knows what will still happen in the next decade? Century? Just keep holding and don't be so into Bitcoin. You can love Bitcoin without spending your time into it, unless you're one of those full-time traders that almost eat their day just to earn something. Just use it to what it can offer for now.
68  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: trade without id verification? on: December 31, 2018, 12:34:12 PM
~
As far as I know with each trading account you should verify your account correctly. Reason: Firstly, you can get the maximum withdrawal limit of the trading floor, the second you can get the best support from the trading support team. That's what I think is perfectly reasonable. You can choose Bittrex if you are afraid of having too many verifications. High stability and no need to wait too long in every transaction!
To add; if you basic verify yourself on exchanges with false information (false address, name, etc) and the exchange in question is going to subject you to the full ID verification process, you are toasted. Explain them why you put wrong' address and name data that doesn't match with your actual documents. Kiss your funds goodbye.
Some would require a selfie verification to verify that you really own that government-issued ID because it might stolen by someone or for any other reason. Our local online wallet does that. It isn't in an exchange but you can't cash out your BCH, ETH, BTC and withdraw it into PHP (our local currency) without going into those verification. In exchanges like Binance, I don't trade that is gonna be equivalent to 1 BTC so I am not gonna needing those at least for now.

Looks like you didn't meet the required 15 minimum post for the week.
It was indicated that I reached 15 posts from the spreadsheet though. Let's just wait for an update.

72  Economy / Economics / Re: Is it good to recruit other person to join Blockchain technology? on: December 30, 2018, 04:30:18 PM
Because blockchain is also a good and useful technology , yes its good if you can introduce it to others and recruit to join this technology, together with bitcoin , I think it is more productive if the bitcoin and blockchain will go together and produces positive output in the cryptocurrency world.

The question is how can you convince them to "join" or somehow interact with this technology? It's like asking some naive people to use smartphone while they don't know what is Wifi, Bluetooth etc. I partially agree that you can convince them by Bitcoin because of none of the other reasons which is gaining profit through investment, then what if the price swings like right now? Who's to blame? Who's particularly responsible for it? You can't blame the technology since it is just doing its job on how it is made or programmed. I kinda remember that issue here in my country where it was like a cooperatives collecting investment from the members to invest in some project using Bitcoin. Ending point? The lead was arrested for it. The members got scammed. The government partly redefines what Bitcoin is at that day. They're aware that it is an unstable currency so they can't blame it, but it was such luck that they didn't ban it.
73  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bull Run or Dead Cat Bouncing ? on: December 30, 2018, 03:29:12 PM
I'll call it dead. Unless consistency in gaining is observed then we can consider it a bull run. Longest bull-trap I had experienced was like around 1.5k of hopes lost. I was about to call it gains but then it was a pull. Right now, I won't expect it to get past 5k or even 4.5k. I would rather be satisfied by seeing it climbing slowly to 4k (I am seeing 3.8k right now) rather than a burst gain of 4k in an hour where that's where I will presume it is a bull trap.
74  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why government do not want bitcoin to be legal? on: December 30, 2018, 01:45:00 PM
Too general. What country where their government is against cryptocurrencies? I know some banned it and some put in into their watchlist to see where it will lead, but each government would vary in reasons on why did they decide such decision. It is obvious they don't want their citizen to be hiding transaction underneath their shoes where shady things could happen and that is my number 1 assumption. It could be also because of the obvious reason of its instability that would cause losses to certain businesses if they lit the green light to the usage of Bitcoin.
75  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How Phillipines adopting BITCOIN on: December 30, 2018, 11:31:39 AM
Could you specify those fast food chains that accepts Bitcoin? Jollibee? Mcdonalds? I don't know if it just simply because I am far from the capital but so far I don't see any major adoptions of Bitcoin here in my area and city. Somehow I am really aware of those Bitcoin ATMs at Makati City, since I had been curious to where are Bitcoin ATMs available at here in the Philippines.  I am just wondering what sort of services really accept Bitcoin because I might consider investing in buying some hardware wallets so I can buy without bringing my wallet anywhere. It wouldn't hurt if it was some online shops like Lazada or even Shopee, but I guess they still don't support an unstable currency.
76  Economy / Economics / Re: Bitcoin need a miracle on: December 30, 2018, 05:35:53 AM
Just let it be. It doesn't need miracle, it just need to sustain in the long run and for sure it will lead in where it "should" headed. Expect a lot of panickers for now, we can't do anything about that. For now, the least that every people that sighed in this bearish market is hold, hold, hold, buy, and hold. I don't even expect a lot of usage of it by other entities in the economy like the government or businesses, because of the fear that happens in Bitcoin right now. But believe me, that once it gets back on track to where it has lost, a lot will take notice.
77  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Let's stop comparing Bitcoin to Ethereum or any other Cryptos on: December 30, 2018, 04:40:07 AM
I don't think that those sell offs is due to the comparisons that are being done in the community. It's only a result where everyone panics so I don't really think that will be a cause of the dump. They are just FOMOing so they are selling. And about the comparisons of bitcoin to ETH or to any altcoin, that comparison is nowhere to go. Just ignore those people that keeps on comparing bitcoin and altcoin.

Panicking in short. In the idea that they're both correlated or similar in usage such as being an E-Money, causes comparison. But as what you had said, they're both completely different and they're just being compared to their price. Those alts bursting out from the market, some of them dried out overnight after their release even in popular exchanges causing it to be traded less frequent. Even when it comes to the trading volume of Bitcoin, you can't compare it to the quantity of the trading volume per day in other coins.
78  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin stolen. Electrum exploit / phishing on: December 30, 2018, 03:29:29 AM
I am using Electrum for almost half a year now and I never got notified by these kinds of updates and such. Looks like it would suck for those who fell into the trap. Redirecting to GitHub instead of its official site is already suspicious in the first sight though, even the official site itself doesn't give any site to GitHub for the repositories of the software itself.
79  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Is Coinbase safe to store currency? on: December 29, 2018, 05:43:02 PM
You should store keys where only you know the secret and have reasonable control how the secret moves along when you die.

This.
Particularly you can use Coinbase to buy crypto coins that could be used mainly for trading purposes or investment to exchanges. It is quite similar to our local application for buying the basic or popular cryptos like BTC, ETH, BCH. While I store some coins in them, I still have the majority in my desktop wallet which is Electrum. I don't think that these online wallets would provide you Segwit-address that could lessen fees as you send funds to other addresses which is a plus for you somehow.
80  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What are the Real Risks of Crypto? on: December 29, 2018, 05:02:50 PM
I had read the article, and pretty much the first two and and second two risks are just correlated to each other. Legalities and volatility sums up to each other that's why there aren't that much of adoption in cryptos, as businesses take precautions in gaining losses in using these instruments when they attempt to make an acceptance using this. Assuming that Bitcoin was adapted to all of the businesses a year ago and it is still being used continuously until this day. How much losses would businesses incur right now when they approach the bearish trend of the crypto, while at the same time we also make an assumption that many people use it right now? For the second two risks which is regarding about the protection of the consumers, which could still somehow be breached maybe due to irresponsibility of the holder of the coin, like the so called discipline of not leaving your coins in exchanges. Perhaps this could also be linked on the reasons why crypto aren't yet being full legalized in some countries though.
