1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Can we survive without Bitcoin? on: February 11, 2018, 07:12:11 PM
Many of us may have read that 2018 will be game over for bitcoin.Every now and then have seen that every Tom, Dick & Harry Coin claims that their blockchain technology is better than bitcoin and they will solve the real issue with bitcoin network but in reality no one is even close to that.

Is there a alternate to bitcoin to replace it?

Can this crypto economy survive without bitcoin?

Sorry, but is this question a joke.  You make it seem like you think the survival of the human race depends on crypto.  Have you ever thought of the parallel similarities between crypto and government?  World powers have come and gone, and the human species continues to live.  And, eventually every government either changes structure or is completely replaced.  But, government has not ceased to exist. 

So, yes, we can survive without bitcoin.  And, yes, the crypto economy can also survive without bitcoin.  If bitcoing ceased to exist tomorrow, all other cryptos would take a hit, but due to the volatile nature and potential to make money on crypto, eventually the legitimate cryptos would bounce back and most who previously invested in bitcoing would begin putting their money into whichever crypto they feel would make them the most profit.
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The US to pay taxes with bitcoin on: February 11, 2018, 06:54:22 PM
How true could this news be that the Arizona Senate in the United States of America has passed a bill which could allow residents in the state pay their taxes in bitcoin and other altcoins?

https://www.express.co.uk/finance/city/917015/bitcoin-tax-cryptocurrency-tax-bitcoin-price-cryptocurrencies-news/amp

First, why ask the question here?  Why not do the research yourself to see if this is a credible story?  It's a simple task.

Second, I did the research, and it appears to be a legit story.  However, the bill was passed by the Arizona senat, and still needs approval by the AZ house of representatives.

Third, the state of Arizona does not represent the US.  So your title is misleading.

Whatever you do, don't go all in on any one coin. That is literally the silliest thing you can do, and you should protect yourself from massive swings by diversifying!

You would think that a "long time trader of stocks and options" would automatically understand this concept.  But, maybe he's going crypto because he wasn't successful in the stock market.

It wasn't like that before. But when they entered the american exchanges, they became more centralised. But if you are not living in us, there won't be a problem for you.

I disagree.  Centralization means higher risks on many levels, which can affect the worldwide market.  Besides mining and exchanges do not necessarrily go hand-in-hand.

Just an FYI.  I've always heard rumors, so this was an interesting read.

6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How much do you think XRP will be at the end of 2018? on: January 17, 2018, 06:11:27 PM
To my great regret, I do not think that Ripple will ever be worth anything, simply because I think it will soon just not exist, because as far as I understand it is not quite legal from the point of view of the law. you need to read about it in more detail

What law?
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why are people buying Ripple? on: January 17, 2018, 06:08:20 PM
correction is now shown that the price of this coin was very much exaggerated . pretty much where wrote about ripple , here it is on this and much growing up! the speculators ! now that we can see?)

Have you looked at the rest of the market lately?  Seems like you have focused on XRP and missed the fact that every other crypto has also corrected.  Based on your comment, the price of all of them were very much exaggerated.  Can't have it both ways.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Put Alts into Teather to stop the bleeding? on: January 17, 2018, 02:45:09 PM
Just looking for your thoughts on the idea of moving my alts to Teather (based on the USD) to stop the bleeding until the drop stops.

10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: !URGENT! Looking for cryptocurrency startup teams on: January 16, 2018, 04:56:34 AM
Hello, I am a marketing executive in a top startup looking to apply my skills in blockchain technologies. Where can I go to join the team of an upcoming cryptocurrency startup?

Seems to me a good marketing executive at a top startup wouldnt need to ask this question.

On the other hand: transaction times are pretty fast and fees are usually pretty low, so it is perfectly usable.

Perfectly usable for what? Is anyone using it for said purpose?

Yes, MoneyGram. And, s anyone using bitcoin for its intended purpose with insanely high transaction fees and slow proccessing times?
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: where did the money go? on: January 14, 2018, 01:12:20 AM
Its because coin market cap removed the South Korean exchanges from their numbers and seems like everything is down.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / BTC Insufficient Balance to Cover Network Fee - Now What? on: January 11, 2018, 06:40:37 PM
I earned a small amount of BTC for a referral on an exchange that I have let sit for a few months.  It is under $10US.  I wanted to send it to another exchange to buy an inexpensive altcoin just for fun.  I didn't even have enough to cover the network fee to send a miniscule amount to the other exchange.  I'm not going to buy more, so what do I do with this?  It seems like waste, and it makes me think that using BTC for day-to-day living will never work.  Thoughts?
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Coinbase not adding Ripple on: January 05, 2018, 05:17:09 PM
Coinbase Rejects Ripple Integration Rumors. What do you guys think of this news? Who is responsible for the rumors?

Your subject line and and the headline you quoted from Cointelegraph.com is misleading because it is not entirely true.  

Coinbase's CEO stated the following, “A committee of internal experts is responsible for determining whether and when new assets will be added to the platform in accordance with our framework. These individuals — and all employees at Coinbase — are subject to confidentiality and trading restrictions.  As of the date of this statement, we have made no decision to add additional assets to either GDAX or Coinbase. Any statement to the contrary is untrue and not authorized by the company.”

Coinbase's president stated the following at the end of 2017, "So we have published a digital asset framework which outlines the criteria we look at for any particular asset before we list it…You need to pass those exams before we would ever list the asset…suffice to say that we have a framework out there and we have a lot of people campaigning for new assets."

So, it seems that Coinbase is looking at additional currencies for inclusion on their exchange, however, they have not iminent plans to do so.  That does not mean that they won't decide to add one next week, whether it would be XRP or some other currency.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Should I sell all my ripple on: December 31, 2017, 11:34:45 PM
Yes in my opinion. Just look at the chart and you will see ho fast it increased. Every coin that increased this fast make a correctin in price.
You will want to look at the previos dates and you will see the same thing happened in May. I was trading XRP and XLM in that day and I lost all my gains waiting further increase in price. But it is your decision in the end.

Now lets analyze this persons recommendation to sell. He says you should sell now because he almost lost all his profit 7 months ago when the high of XRP was anout $0.35US. But, if he would have held it for 7 months, his XRP would be worth over $2.00US. So, could you sell now?  Yes.  Is it probable you will make more profit if you dont sell?  Yes.

what types of question it is ? are u looking for a solution . miner mine btc and sale with higher price

Just curious. It seemed like the weakness of bitcoin, and I wondered what the ramifications would be if I was right?
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is Ripple the currency of the future? on: December 30, 2017, 10:12:58 PM
In 2018, the coin will grow in price. According to the experts of the market, the value of Ripple next year will easily reach the levels of 0.60000 and 1.00000, and this is not the limit of growth!

Where have you been. XRP already reached those levels and higher.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What happens when all bitcoin is mined? on: December 30, 2017, 10:07:50 PM
We will probably encounter many more real problems from now until then all of which could kill bitcoin itself.

What?  What kinds of problems are we talking about?
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What happens when all bitcoin is mined? on: December 30, 2017, 09:36:36 PM
Correct that once all supply of bitcoin has been mined they will only depend to the fees now. Why is it bothering you? Are you a miner? Those miners aren't even bothering themselves for thinking this since they know in the future bitcoin's future will be great and every single satoshi will be worth it as the demand of bitcoin gets higher and higher and what do you think about the fee? They aren't even cheap anymore by that time.

It concerns me. It seems that this has the potential to cause a huge disparity between rich and poor. The rich whales hold the wealth and only they can afford fees. The poor dont hold enough wealth to afford transaction fees.
 If affordable technology doesnt arrive fast enough, there will be no new miners, and current miners will be forced to shut down their rigs or lose money. The less rigs online the less decentralization exists. Theoretically, bitcoin could become centralized amongst those who can afford rigs and become a monopoly. I dont think it will happen, but theoretically it could happne, right?
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / What happens when all bitcoin is mined? on: December 30, 2017, 08:54:13 PM
Correct me if I dont fully understand the concept of bitcoin. If miners currently work for new bitcoin, then once all bitcoin has been mined, I assume that the only incentive for them to continue running is to collect transaction fees. In order to offset the cost of their rig and electricity, wouldnt their fees need to increase in order for them to make it worth their effort?  Isnt that bad for anyone who wants to use bitcoin as currency instead of investment?
