That's one of the things that really hold my attention, this is a unique experience that Salvador have and i believe it will be awesome if finish with making this country one of the richest countries in the world, but it all depend to the Salvadoran government and how long they will hold bitcoin

Lol, how long or how much you hold bitcoin will never make El-Savador the richest country in the world. Are you confused, bitcoin can make a person or organization rich by holding bitcoin but a country to become rich must rely on resources, education and people. Can't just hold and expect wealth from a volatile coin, it will make El-Salvador fall sooner rather than rich.

When I purchased early on, the price for a btc was $11,000 . a few months ago, I can recall the price level
was $63,000 . I just knew that it was going to hit the $100,000 mark...Now as of today its $30,180

What is going on???  Also, can anyone predetermine if the btc will reach the $100,000 and is the btc
worth the investment...An educated guess, is acceptable!

If you buy bitcoin for 11k and then you see it went up to 63k even $69k if counting ATH. So what worries you is that it won't hit $100k in the future and it's not worth the investment. You should remember that no market goes up forever without falling, current volatility is a regular occurrence in financial markets in general.

Bitcoin will definitely hit the $100k, but no one can tell you when it will arrive, be patient and wait. It will definitely come.

It depends on your usage, bitcoin really has a lot of different utility. They are both an investment, a savings and a means of payment...
Most people prefer to hold rather than spend bitcoin because we all wish bitcoin will increase in price and bring us big money, so these days people tend to accumulate rather than spend bitcoin.

Very intense second leg of play-off match Nottingham vs Sheffield Utd, that is in extra time after Sheffield turned around result in second half.
Nottingham was better in first half but second half was dominated by Sheffield Utd and they deserved to be in extra time, but I didn't expect this because they had many missing players today.
Penalties decided this time, goalkeeper Samba was the hero, and Nottingham is going in Championship play-off final against Huddersfield!
Sheffield were really close to win this game without going into extra time. But it didn't happened. And penalty shootout, you don't see every day goalkeeper making 3 saves, he was main star of night. And like usually happens in such Championship games, fans invaded pitch after game. It's time for Nottingham to final return to EPL.

It was a great match and I thought that Sheffield United had a very good chance in the regular time but when it went to penalties, it was absolutely highly dependent on luck. on and it is true, normally we don't see goalkeepers making 3 saves in the penalty shootout regularly, it was a great job from the goalkeeper. Nottingham Forest hangs in there and they got their reward for it.

There is still a possibility for Betis to move one position down in the standings before the end of the season. But to guarantee their position, they need to have a proper result against Real Madrid. But in Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid wouldn't lose the match easily. Maybe they are already the champions but we don't know how eager they would be to win their last match. However Real Sociedad are two points behind and they need to defeat Atletico Madrid to take Betis' position. I think Atletico Madrid won't lose and Betis will secure their position.

Real Betis should look for a win in the last match at any cost because that is going to give them a chance of finishing in the top four if Sevilla loses the last match. but even if Sevilla draws the last match then Real Betis will not have any chance even if they win. so I think they should look for a win and hope for the best. to be honest it does seem to be highly unlikely to happen.
26  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Italian League Prediction Thread (Serie A) on: May 19, 2022, 08:30:48 PM
The schedule for the last match of the season is not held at the same time, it seems that only Serie A and La Liga have a schedule like this. Because when compared to the Premier League, Bundesliga and Ligue 1 they have a schedule for their last match at the same time. But even so, Milan and Inter's last match schedule is at the same time and the schedule will certainly be very interesting, because then they will play aggressively from the first minute. Imagine, for example, Inter played early and then lost and Milan played after, then maybe Milan won't chase the win and it will be a boring last match, but fortunately they get the same time for the last match later.
The italian league match schedule is from 21-23 but still interesting, both Inter and Milan play together but they can play solidly for their respective wins, we will only see one match here and the score results will be seen from google data.
Honestly, this is the match I'm waiting for in the next few days who will miss or both will win at the same time? and still Milan's chances are in sight if they lose then it's a ruin for the night.

It is absolutely simple math for Milan. if they win this match they win the title and if they lose this match they will most probably lose the title as well because I don't expect Inter to lose the last match against Sampdoria especially when Sampdoria is in the 15th place of the league. Honestly, I don't expect Milan to lose and that's because I have seen them play in the last few Matches and I have to say they have improved their playstyle.

What a big win for Eintrach Frankfurt, not only for being Champion, also for have a place in the next UCL because if you check the Bundesliga this year they are out of european tournaments.
Lets see if they buy a b ig star (i dont thing so).

I did expect a 2-1  win for Frankfurt in regular time. and I expected the Rangers to start aggressively. Anyway, they did break the deadlock but Frankfurt did well to equalize. Frankfurt did not achieve too much in the Bundesliga this season and they are going to finish as a mid-table team in the Bundesliga but they have played really well in the Europa League and they are the deserving champions in my opinion.

We all know that just holding on and being patient we will succeed in this market, but to be honest, it's easy to say but difficult in practice. There are too many temptations for us to overcome and sometimes I just can't get over them. There are many ways to make a profit but holding I think is the best way for us to get the biggest profit and is safer than the rest.
29  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: ⚽ Football Transfers Speculation, Odds and Predictions on: May 18, 2022, 07:55:22 PM

With realmadrid recent form this season I think adding up a quality player like kylian mbappe will be a great move for the laliga champions. To me kylian mbappe will be one of the best signing next summer, he is a very quality, he has alot of qualities that build up a best player, his pace, his exceptional goal scoring pattern, and his skill. Concluding everything I think he is one of the best young player that have ever seen in football history.
In addition, Madrid will also benefit considering that in the current season they are so difficult to score goals when Benzema cannot play for them. Their goal productivity comes mostly from Benzema and when he is not able to play Madrid's form has slumped so badly that they need at least one new striker who does have good productivity.
Mbappe is the one who is suitable for this because at least with this Madrid can breathe a sigh of relief when Benzema starts to slack off or can't score goals for them

Mbappe is surely not going to be a rotation player for Real Madrid if that is what a lot of people are thinking. He is going to be a crucial player for any squad.

So, if anyone is thinking that he will be a replacement for Benzema I think they are quite mistaken. But I really think that if he plays in the right wing and Benzema is the main striker Real Madrid is going to score a lot of goals. Now Real Madrid really needs to buy a good defender that has a really good pace.

Lewandoski actually want fully dedicated time for Bayern , he is one of key player and have alot contribution for Bayern so far. if its really gone and play for another team, this team get big disadvantages and maybe their quality in next season will totally different. i am believe management make big mistake this time.
All agree with Robert Lewandoski as the best player and become top scorer every season on Bundesliga, give full dedicated for Bayern Munich. Have other thing by Bayern Munich with Lewandoski still top performance and have 1 year contract left give chance get much money by selling him. Barcelona have talk interested with Robert Lewandoski and great business by Bayern Munich to get new central player.
Lewandowski is now entering a fairly old age, but if you look at his consistency in scoring goals that continues to improve with age, of course it is a big loss for Munich if let him go next season, now it can be said that only Haalaand has a similar performance to Lewandowski in the Bundesliga, but haalaand has now officially become a manchester city player so there are only a few great striker options that bayer munchen can recruit if they lose lewandowski next season, but I'm sure after lewandowski leaves bayern munchen later they will certainly no longer find a great striker like lewandowski.

Honestly, I think Barcelona did pay a little too much for the player who might not be able to give a long-time service to the club. he is old and there is no question about him being a great finisher but certainly, he has lost some pace that he used to have. I really believe that Bayern Munich's did get good money for a player who is quite old. but the thing is he is old but not obsolete.
31  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: ⚽UEFA Europa League Discussion Thread -- 2021/22 Final! on: May 17, 2022, 05:17:00 PM
Eintracht Frankfurt is the favourite by a small margin, but either side can win the match. These teams have not played each other before in the modern era, we don't know what kind of match it will be. Since it's a single match, both sides have equal chances. In terms of market value, Rangers is a slightly smaller team. As a league, they are not as competitive as Germany. So it gets a little harder to evaluate. I think both teams will start the game with control. The side that scores first gets a big advantage. Nobody expected these two teams in the final, but now they are here.
I also think that Frankfurt is going to be ahead if we think about the performance that they have been able to show in the Europa League. They actually played really well and played as a team. I rarely saw them making any solo plays. I actually think they have been playing well because they are playing as a team and all the players in the team are really well at complimenting each other. And the attacks by Frankfurt seem to be a lot more coordinated.
Oh, yes, what I admire about Eintracht is how the team can quickly go on the attack in a few passes and find themselves near someone else's penalty area. Also in favor of the club is what rivals were passed along the way by the club from Frankfurt. Still, Betis, West Ham and especially Barcelona are quite big names compared to the club from Germany and these clubs were the favorites, not Eintracht. But still, I will not risk calling Eintracht the undisputed favorite of the Europa League final and Rangers have already proved in this draw that they know how to gather and tilt the outcome of matches in their favor. Another question is that this usually happened at the Rangers home stadium.

I also saw Frankfurt making some really good passes even in the final third. And they did not hesitate at all. It really look like they knew what they were doing. That type of coordination is rarely seen in the teams that are playing in the Europa League. At least that is the case in this Europa League. I honestly did not see this type of coordination from any other team in the European League and I am really confident that Frankfurt is going to win the final even if it is by a very small margin.

Bielefeld and Greuther Furth have to accept the fact that they will no longer play in the Bundesliga next season. Yes, their points are not enough for them to stay here. Bielefeld's 28 points from 34 games forced them to take 17th place, while Greuther Furth's 18 points put them bottom of the table.
Bielefeld and Greuther Furth are not able to compete with other teams in the league and I think they deserve to be relegated, this season Bielefeld and Greuther Furth have been a source of goals and points for the stronger teams in the league, played 34 games, Bielefeld and Greuther Furth only able to win in 3 and 5 matches and even they are listed as a team that has conceded quite a lot with 53 and 82 goals, respectively.
I hope next season we will see promotion teams like Schalke, Bremen or Hamburg can compete with other strong teams next season in the Bundesliga.

Armenia and Furth are surely going to get relegated.
I also agree that they deserve to be relegated because you cannot win  only three or five matches and expect not to get relegated. They need to prove themselves to play In the Bundesliga again. which I actually think they might not be able to do. the way they have performed in Bundesliga I am not going to be surprised if they continue this type of performance in the second Bundesliga also.

Suarez contract expires in the summer and after the match against Sevilla yesterday Suarez said goodbye to the Atletico fans, I think there will be no more contract talks between Suarez and Atlético so the possibility of him returning to the premier league is quite high, for now I don't think if liverpool need suarez moreover they already have a pretty good combination of attackers like diogo jota, Salah, mane and luis diaz, so I don't think klopp will try to re-sign suarez next season, the only biggest chance for suarez to return to the english league is to join with aston villa and this will be a reunion between steven gerrad and countinho who are  suarez former team.
I think it's been clear for a while - since Gerrard signed Coutinho - that Suarez was next on the target list. It's a good move for Suarez, he's 35 so nearing the end of his career at the top. If he goes to Villa, he gets a reunion with his friends, has a manager who knows him and values him, a league he knows, and he's good enough to be a vital player for the team instead of just sitting warming the bench as he might do at a top club. Of course he'd have to take a pay cut, but that's the only stumbling block really.

I think the pay cut is going to be worth it, especially at this stage of his career.  because he is obviously not going to get offers from teams that are very high class. So he has to make do with whatever he has right now.  and at the end of the season if he does join Sevilla I think it is not going to be well enough for him. Because if he does decide to go to a top tier  team he is going to make a mistake because he will have to warm the bench in the team.

This is turning out to be very frustrating session for the Bangladesh, nothing is working out so far and this 9th wicket partnership taking momentum into Sri lanka's favor.
Test cricket is tough state of affair but Bangladesh fielders need to back their bowler and at least shouldn't drop catch at this moment.
Bangladesh has missed few opportunities to break the 9th wicket partnership. They missed catches, they missed to make run out. Sri Lanka got all out in 397 runs. But the disappointed fact is that Mathews got out at his 199 runs. Day 2 has ended now. Bangladesh has collected 76 runs without losing any wicket. Both openers are playing very well. Sri Lankans player has dropped some catches too.

The bowling of Bangladesh was really bad and they leaked a lot of runs here and there which actually took the pressure off the batsman and Sri Lanka was not being pressured well enough by the Bangladeshi bowlers. They could have restricted the Sri Lankan batting score under at least 350. But I am actually amazed to see that Bangladesh did not lose any wickets today. Normally I cannot trust them with anything when they are batting in the test match.

In that match against Pakistan in 2003 WC, Pakistan was in very good position till Symonds came in. The entire pace attack of Pakistan wasim, waqar and sohaib were helpless in front of him. I remember he is a good fielder also. He left cricket with good memories unlike Shane Warne.
There is no doubt this was one off amazing matches in this world cup as after winning toss Pakistan decided to field and their start was very good with once Australia were 86 for 4 but as Symonds arrived he changes all in this game on ground first partnership with skipper Ponting and then Hogg and Harvey give him good company for his highest career score in ODI 143 here Pakistani bowlers also received few warnings from empire about their bowling as well. After having 310 runs on board, their bowlers were also on target and packed all Pakistani batting under 228 with the highest scorer was number nine batsman Wasim Akram 33. Harvey was hero for his team with the figure of 4/58.
 
This is a big lost for cricket and specially for CA as they are suffering badly in the last few weeks with the death of Shane Warne and now Symonds.

That was obviously a great match and one of the great classics that is going to be remembered for a long time. We all know that Australia has always been one of the greatest cricketing teams in the whole world. So it is obvious that they have been producing some great players through the time and he was obviously one of them. Some unfortunate losses for Australian cricket in recent times.

But I accept the fact that soon Elon Musk would make a comment on this global crypto price drop. It wont have much effect, but, it will give hope for those who are new or came to crypto by Elon Musk's referral tweets Smiley

As to Bitcoin, it will be saved by itself. Like it usually does. How many times people buried Bitcoin ? This price drop will just +1 to current bury counter.

I think so too, he'll be sure to post tweets about the recent drop soon. We all know he is a bitcoin and crypto lover. While he has used his fame in the past for his own gain, he is clearly advocating bitcoin and crypto. This is something we should be glad he's on our side.
Bitcoin doesn't need anyone to save it, people find a way to destroy it but then it will stand up on its own and will get stronger and stronger.

I stopped paying attention to the post and indeed the article when they talked about "experts". This seems to just be a word media channels throw around to give credibility to unfounded assumptions or to refer to channels with large following.

Bitcoin does not have a dependent correlation with Terra USDT and a drop in the latter would not have an effect on the former. Price drops would be for a variety of reasons some of which were listed in the article.

There are many reasons for the market drop but the recent drop I think has a lot to do with terra. Bitcoin is not affiliated with any terra, but ust is backed by bitcoin and many other altcoins. If everything is exactly as terra lab says they have sold over 80k bitcoins to try to keep the ust price, then bitcoin's price drop is understandable.

But the irony is that nobody voiced for such deaths that resulted just because of abusive use of labor. This abusive use of labor is not only limited to Qatar, almost all gulf states have such attitude towards poor immigrants from south Asia. Few months later everyone will be busy enjoying and betting on FIFA worldcup matches, no one will remember such deaths.

Unfortunately this World Cup has many things wrong, allowed by FIFA in an indirect way. And there are just no more things, because public opinion has exerted some pressure and they have adjusted something. Despite being the biggest event in world football, it will also be marked as the most controversial World Cup.

The world has been through a lot in these years and people all around the world had to get adjusted to a lot of things. And after what the world has seen in the last few years the controversy around the FIFA world cup is not something that people will not be able to get their head around.

Anyway, after a lot of controversies and waiting the world cup is going to happen and I can say that a lot of people are really excited about it.

Above all else, it wasn't an easy match for Tottenham at all today. Actually the first half was fully under control of them but they were able to score only one goal. And in the other half, they just tried to keep their score advantage until the end. I can't say that they played defensively but they had less goal opportunities I mean. Burnley found many more opportunities in this half but there was no shot on goal. Tottenham managed to get that 1-0 win. Let's see how Arsenal will answer to it.

To be honest, I also expect Hertha to win against HSV. Because I believe they are the better teams and with the performance, they have shown in Bundesliga I do expect them to play better compared to hamburgers.
It's been a long time for me since I have seen Schalke playing this good and I really have high hopes for them in the Bundesliga next season. I hope they will be at least able to finish in the top 10 in Bundesliga.
