381  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What is the fastest blockchain? on: November 02, 2020, 02:56:32 AM
Base on my previous experiences there's a lot of claims that were hanging around and say's that they possessed the fastest blockchain in the industry, But according to TECTUM Blockchain creator "they are the fastest blockchain because they already reach the 1 million TPS" and it is very far from Bitcoin's 4.6 TPS, Ethereum's 15 TPS, Ripple's 1700 TPS and even with EOS 50,000 TPS, if it's true base on that claim Tectum Blockchain, is the fastest.

Speed ​​is too high, ridiculously high, I just know that SOLANA, EOS, RIPPLE, STELLAR, LAMDEN are currently the fastest blockchains. I've been on this forum and many Telegram discussion groups talk about cryptocurrencies but have never heard of TECTUM. They may not have launched their product yet, but claiming the world's fastest blockchain is overconfidence. If they did create such a fast blockchain, it would surely change the world economy dramatically.
382  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: I guess bounty hunters really kill projects on: November 02, 2020, 02:24:57 AM
Before commenting that bounty hunters destroy projects, we need to consider the total bounty and the quality of the project.
Total winnings are clear when the bonus chain is generated. Based on the number of participants we can estimate the value each will receive but poor project liquidity will result in a decrease in the value of the project after the distribution of the bonus. We should not blame hunters. If the project is listed on multiple exchanges, has high liquidity and good project quality, then the project's tokens distributed to hunters will not be the cause of the price drop.
The hunters did their part and they were not wrong in selling what they received. The bounty program organizer should plan to distribute tokens in the bounty campaign properly to avoid slippage.

Satoshi created Bitcoin and empowered the Bitcoin Core team and the community in the development of the source code for Bitcoin. He will continue to remain anonymous to ensure the decentralization of Bitcoin. That makes the value for Bitcoin.
The purpose he created Bitcoin was to send money anonymously, quickly and without being controlled by the bank. He makes no statements about the future of Bitcoin, but the people who use Bitcoin create the future for itself.
384  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is it time to invest in Polkadot? on: October 28, 2020, 04:11:52 PM
Although they have many new projects developing on Polkadot, it needs to be known and used more often by everyone. At least it should be as popular as Ethereum for its convenience, usage habits, and rich ecosystem.
The RUST programming language will not be well received by developers because of its confusing and difficult to control. Ethereum's SOLIDITY seems easier to implement smart contracts, so it's easier to engage developers.

In terms of investing in Polkadot, it is too early because this project has been overblown and difficult to increase in value. If Polkadot offers further discounts I will consider investing in it.
385  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What you should need to consider before trading cryptocurrencies? on: October 27, 2020, 04:29:44 PM
Cryptocurrencies are relatively new to us even though they have a history of more than 10 years since the introduction of Bitcoin. Cryptocurrencies represent a type of technology, a company, or an asset through the NFT. It is important to have a clear understanding of cryptocurrencies, how they operate on the blockchain and the associated technologies. Since cryptocurrencies are between economics and technology, we must be knowledgeable in both of these fields.
386  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin, the complete version of money on: October 27, 2020, 04:14:51 PM
The development of world currency has a history of many changes, we started by using objects in nature to gradually convert we have coins and paper money. We have virtual currencies of banks and they move across the internet, in our opinion valuable and the numbers displayed on the account are virtual. On a higher level, we have Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. They are fraud-resistant thanks to blockchain technology and are limited in number to combat inflation.
Notice how money is built based on human achievements such as finding the iron, silver, gold, inventing paper, inventing the internet, inventing blockchain ... Bitcoin has blockchain technology and has a mining mechanism. and released to fight inflation. Bitcoin has value globally and everyone can safely own and trade Bitcoin.
Bitcoin lies between two areas: economics and technology.
They represent the progress of humanity up to this point. So they are a complete high-level currency for what people are aiming for.
That's exactly what I mean. Bitcoin is an intersection of economics and technology. With the strong development of science and technology, especially computer science being successfully applied in the leading economic branches. Let's see how the computer and the internet have changed the face of the world economy since they appeared. The explosion of the Internet has been predicted since 1050 by the CANADA philosopher Marshall McLuhan (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshall_McLuhan) with his writings. The content of works refers to the impact of technology on society.

Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies are products of humans, products of evolution. Currently, financial companies and banks have acknowledged the existence of Bitcoin. We need to accept that this is a trend that will play out in the future.
387  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Which coin do you think will become next Ethereum? on: October 27, 2020, 03:58:57 PM
The next coin to replace ETHEREUM has been a frequent question in recent years since Ethereum launched its smart contract.
Ethereum provides the infrastructure for projects and is doing very well right now. But what they can't foresee is the explosion of smart contracts when people use Ethereum too much. That leads to absurdly high transaction costs and the congestion of the Ethereum network.

Another problem for ethereum is that they created 'Solidity'. It's a powerful language but incredibly confusing and difficult to keep developers productive.
We already have NEO, EOS, TRX, BINANCE SMART CHAIN, WAVES that are on their way and looking for ways to compete with Ethereum but they can't. Recently appeared CARDANO, SOLANA, POLKADOT and LAMDEN. These are blockchains that allow for the creation of new and high-speed smart contracts.

I appreciate the aforementioned blockchains because they are better than Ethereum but their language for making smart contracts is quite difficult. Only LAMDEN uses Python.

The most popular, easiest to learn a programming language by far is Python. So LAMDEN will be able to attract more developers as they allow for faster code generation. The next problem I see LAMDEN can do is when developers get 90% Tx when their DAPPs are used. They will not need to generate any tokens because the income from DAPP transaction costs is huge.
388  Economy / Economics / Re: Real estate vs. Bitcoin on: October 26, 2020, 02:19:10 PM
Real estate has specific characteristics and according to each country and region to value. To invest in real estate we need a sufficient amount of money and may need a lawyer to help us complete our transaction. Selling a property takes a certain amount of time for someone to notice and offer to buy it. In this case, the slippage in the deal happens quite high because it is a discussion process. We can use real estate for rent and bitcoin cannot.
As for Bitcoin, we can own much less money than real estate, we can transact ourselves with immediate effect. Bitcoin's liquidity is global and you can buy Bitcoin anywhere in the world.
What Bitcoin and real estate have in common is that they are limited assets.
389  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why more people Trad to this 3curency USDT BTC ETH? on: October 26, 2020, 02:09:23 PM
Those are the three most popular cryptocurrencies, large-cap, and the largest volume of transactions in the cryptocurrency market. People can invest large sums of money in them without worrying about being liquidated. That will counteract slippage and manipulation.
Another issue is its use. Tether is an absolute store of value when USDT is backed by one dollar in the bank. People can use USDT to buy most cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin is decentralized and liquid around the world. Everyone loves to hold Bitcoin. Ethereum caters to DEFI projects, participates in ICOs and initiates smart contracts.
Because of the above reasons, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Usdt are the most traded.
390  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Does Signature campaign increase ICO credibility? I see few good ICOs recently on: October 26, 2020, 01:56:39 PM
In what you wrote, there is a place to be, but partially. The bitcoin talk forum effectively promotes projects through signatures. First of all, this is due to the profile and narrow focus of the forum. It discusses the basics, development and promotion of projects by people who have knowledge since the inception of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Therefore, social networks are thieves in importance.

The more signatures discussed will be displayed, which also means that people will see more signatures. People who skim through the project will decide whether or not to invest in it.
Isn't the purpose of the signature program to sell a lot of tokens and attract the community? So if it's a bad project, who will buy it? The most important issue is whether the project itself is good enough or not.
391  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Could Tether (USDT) be really called decentralized cryptocurrency? on: October 25, 2020, 04:36:25 PM
Tether is a company and they only issue USDT when there is a bond in the bank. Tether is a store of absolute value when 1USD = 1USDT, sometimes their exchange rate difference due to market transactions. Tether is issued on different blockchains, and they are still influenced by the Tether company.
392  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Does Signature campaign increase ICO credibility? I see few good ICOs recently on: October 25, 2020, 04:15:45 PM
I am a regular participant in signature programs and I find that they do not help projects. The signature program is inferior to Twitter, Facebook, Telegram, Youtube Video ... because it only affects the Bitcointalk forum. Other social networks have more users and certainly bring more advertising value.
I consider the signature program of interest to encourage everyone to participate in discussions on this forum.
393  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Loan to buy Bitcoin? on: October 25, 2020, 04:11:12 PM
The cryptocurrency market is high risk and no one can predict their future value. Cryptocurrencies are associated with technology, technology is always changing. Bitcoin can be a good investment, you can borrow money to buy Bitcoin but always know your financial ability. I used to borrow money to invest in the crypto market and I know the difficulties of investing with loans. In the case of a re-selection, I wouldn't borrow to invest because it was terrible. I have to work hard to pay off my debts while my investments are losing money.
394  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why should we welcome centralized bodies for Bitcoin mainstream on: October 25, 2020, 04:03:31 PM
Bitcoin alone is already a means of payment and it is in direct competition with any form of global payment in the world because of the advantages of transferring money quickly and having small fees when sending large amounts.
Paypal has a much higher cost than Bitcoin. The integration of Bitcoin in Paypal's system helps them benefit from transaction fees.
Bitcoin on Paypal does not lose the decentralization of Bitcoin because not all of us choose Paypal to transfer money.

Talking about the benefit of Paypal for Bitcoin, which is that it is free globally, Bitcoin will become legal because it is regulated in the law, Bitcoin has more liquidity from users on Paypal (this has will cause Bitcoin to rise in price).
395  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Will you buy BTC from PayPal now that they are letting people do it? on: October 23, 2020, 02:08:53 PM
I personally using Paypal since 2007, I never had any problem with them. So for me Yes, I will certainly buy bitcoin from PayPal, because it will be easy for me to buy and sell there than an exchange. I trust Paypal, they are one of the biggest online payment services and been there for ages. Once Paypal starts bitcoin selling, it will be officially bitcoin using in the mainstream.

The problem with paying on Paypal is that their fees are too high from (1.5% - 2.5%) + 0.3 $ per transaction. I have never used cash to buy Bitcoin on Paypal, I will probably incur fees from their platform. Another problem is that can we withdraw Bitcoin to storage like other exchange platforms?

If there is only one thing for Bitcoin to be moved internally within the Paypal system, then bad because it doesn't help much for those who want to keep Bitcoin.
396  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Thinking Bitcoin is Scam on: October 23, 2020, 02:01:14 PM
In the years since Bitcoin's inception, many have called it a scam. At the same time, there were thousands of people buying into Bitcoin and rich with that choice.
Bitcoin has liquidity around the world and is accepted by many institutions for payment in Bitcoin. Bitcoin is created by investing in machines and using electrical energy to create it. Bitcoin is essentially a store of value because the difficulty of Bitcoin mining increases every 4 years and the limit is 21 million BTC.
Looking at the amount of cash, no one knows how much more money the world will print in the future. Cash is used by people and is also supported by banks for crimes they commit such as human trafficking, smuggling, money laundering, arms trafficking, ...
Bank cash is made of paper and regulation, they are valuable because people admit it. Bitcoin also admits its value and liquidity increase over time so it can't be a scam.
397  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: People Say btc is Not ponzi but its look like ponzi on: October 21, 2020, 02:09:32 PM
Bitcoin can't be Ponzi because Bitcoin is more than 10 years old and its value continues to rise over the long term (including downward adjustment). Just like fiat money, there is always an exchange around Bitcoin. Bitcoin's liquidity is quite large and the number of people using Bitcoin increases over time.
Many countries agree Bitcoin is a legitimate means of payment.
398  Economy / Economics / Re: PayPal to allow cryptocurrency buying, selling and shopping on its network on: October 21, 2020, 01:54:44 PM
Quote
U.S. account holders will be able to buy, sell and hold cryptocurrencies in their PayPal wallets over the coming weeks, the company said. It plans to expand to Venmo and some countries in the first half of 2021.

Are those real bitcoins or like in the case of revolut just a form of CFDs?
If those area real bitcoins and you can deposit and withdraw them from Paypal then this might be the much-awaited breakthrough, not a fan of Paypal and probably not going to use it for this but there are millions who will.

Oh, they haven't launched yet but they already have the fees for it:  Cheesy
https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-fees
Between 2.3% and 1.55, not that bad.

They are actually making money efficiently at exorbitant costs. I'm not sure if they charge a fee with Bitcoin, but if they do, then no one will use their services. Bitcoin alone is an extremely good, reliable and cost-effective means of payment.
Paypal's move makes Bitcoin advertising to everyone for free. The more people who use Bitcoin, the higher the liquidity and value of bitcoin.
399  Economy / Economics / Re: Government slowly open the economy, will it make the pandemic worst? on: October 20, 2020, 12:53:02 PM
I agree with your point of view. Economic openness can be a threat to the economy, especially in countries with large tourist arrivals. There is a need for strict management between agencies in the state system to prevent pandemics. A recent example where I see economic opening up, social activities back to normal, potentially the risk of pandemic continuing to complicate, in China, pandemic lasting months and recently In October 2020, couples held many weddings, hundreds of thousands. 19 more COVID-19 infections were found in the community in the nation's chain of wedding events, a sign that we should not neglect pandemic prevention.
I think the use of masks and regular daily hand wash with the antiseptic solution is essential among people.

Generate different tokens from the real project. We can generate tokens on instructions on the internet.
The tokens I know of are mostly spam projects, and they are more like a placeholder token than a valuable utility token.
Creating a project on the blockchain doesn't necessarily create a token. Looking at Moonswap, they create DEX and there is no token representing the project.
