I'm still trying to figure out if you guys just derive joy in giving red trust or there is something else. How am I connected to the strange accounts. Please check again
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How do you determine if an altcoin is worth investing in? on: December 14, 2020, 10:49:56 PM
For me to find a decent altcoin, it must have several important requirements,
is that the altcoin project is active in social media because social media is a fairly effective communication,
a road map that is already running well, a strong and experienced team, and a few more conditions.
and of course, all must be done with analysis first

I think the most important point you made is that an altcoin is worth investing if it has "a strong and experienced team". If a team is capable to achieve goals and has a strong community supporting them, then the project is already 50 percent successful. Also, there should be very good project backings. For example Injective protocol is backed by Binance, this gives investors some level of hope. Whitepaper and Roadmap nowadays can be well written / designed but yet the project is scam, hence even though I check through to know project aim and milestones to be achieved, it's not really what makes me invest in a project.

You expect me to believe that 😒? It seems like every DeFi projects are now using hacks to dodge some blames and responsibilities, it's more like a planned work, sorry mate I don't believe DeFi hacks anymore, there is now more that meet the eye

DEFI hacks are very possible, but it's also true that the rate at which these platforms get hacked, one might suggest some developers do it on purpose. Well, I doubt if a successful project like WNXM will forge a hack, this is a call for all DEFI platforms to keep advancing their security since hackers keep looking for new means to bypass security.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: WHO CAN SHUTDOWN BITCOIN? on: December 14, 2020, 06:19:08 PM
There is no way the country will be able to close bitcoin. Even though some governments prohibit bitcoin circulation in their country, there are still people who hold and use bitcoin. Every country has a very enthusiastic crypto community so that the country is unable to stop the circulation of bitcoin.

It's obvious that no one can shutdown BTC, or stop people from owning BTC. No matter the laws placed to prohibit it, people must still own and make use of it. Imagine some countries are prohibited from using certain exchanges, yet they access it via VPN. This is just an instance to show how much interest people have built over the years for crypto, especially the king (BTC). Most governments however are trying to protect their citizens from the cons of holding BTC, without necessarily looking at the pros. Some governments think BTC is a threat to their own local currency, reason why they try so hard to prohibit it.

It's not a surprise seeing Monero as a new addition to payment options on Pornhub since the likes of VERGE, DASH have been added already. Monero remains my most favorite privacy coin, and this is good news for it since it's all about adoption. Many people care about privacy when dealing with adult industry hence in the long run I also support OP's opinion, Monero will be a good preference for payment on Pornhub everything being equal.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is this even normal? on: December 13, 2020, 09:18:25 PM
Guys is any of these normal?

1. Admin close down bounty group after bounty ends

2. Admin failed to update spreadsheet and gives stakes to participants and later block access to the spreadsheet

This is what base protocol team did to their promoters, all those that participate in signature campaign aren't rewarded any stakes and they can't even look at spreadsheet, bounty group is closed too so anyone can't complain and yet the team said they will make distribution in the next 42 hours

I think you should give them some time before making any conclusions, if not distributed, then you can tag the campaign scam. We've seen similar issues in the past whereby after doing a campaign, and the project is successful, team denies to distribute tokens or apply harsh rules so people miss out. I remember when for a project we did up to three different KYCs just to get about 5% of promised tokens. Also sometimes we get nothing like PAYACCEPT Bounty scam, but it's good not to assume they won't distribute since they said it will be done in 42 hours.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: The success of the project depends on the project developer himself! on: December 13, 2020, 01:11:30 PM
The success of a project does not depend on the developer alone mate, if it does, then there will be a lot of successful projects cus I believe no developer wants to start a project and fail on purpose,
The success of a project is tied to Many factors 

I strongly agree with your point, the success of every project depends on combination of many factors and not just the developer. But I disagree with you when you say "no developer wants to start a project and fail on purpose", this is because many developers have scam intentions and thus your statement there doesn't fit in. If a developer plans to exit scam let's say after token sales, then he already plans to fail on purpose. By the way, you made great points.

This is true, no easy money in crypto world and this surely not a easy money scheme that can make us instant millionaire just a couple of months or even years passed. With bad decision of crypto investments it could lose lots of fortune and that's not healthy at all. Controlling emotions and always doing research will only be the way to negate all bad decisions and future investments to come.

Bad decisions taken in crypto investment can wash off all profit one has accumulated over a long period of time, hence its necessary to think / research properly before taking any investment action. For instance, when I started futures trading, I was comfortable with 2x 3x maximum. Later on greed set in, then I used 50x for a trade, I was so confident it will hit my sell target, but unfortunately the market surprised me and it went south, I got liquidated since my stop loss didn't hit. You need to build a good strategy and stick with it to be successful in crypto, you must not invest in all trending coins, knowing when not to invest is very vital too.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Airdrops or "Scam-drops"? on: December 13, 2020, 07:52:55 AM
To participate in airdrop you just sign up the form then do a few tasks then you will get your token soon but an airdrop that requires to send a small fee that is a scam for sure. Imagine if thousands people join this kind of airdrop then the scammers will be happy, we make them rich easily so avoid this kind of airdrop.
Yes, obviously any airdrop requiring participants to pay fees in order to receive tokens is scam. Some even try to hack participants by asking for private key when filling form, and some newbies who are ignorant fall prey to this. We just need to be careful when filling airdrop forms, also avoid filling email used to register on exchange. Nowadays very few airdrop even worth it, I prefer an airdrop whereby you just hold tokens without filling any form, yet receive tokens after snapshot like the recent SPARK airdrop for XRP holders.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: The DeFi Red Flags on: December 12, 2020, 10:20:31 PM
Three things that give me confidence to invest in a DEFI project include : well recognised team / reliable team with good project backings, good product or at least MVP, and regular updates. If these factors are absent, I look far away from the project. For projects that list on uniswap, I do check their uniswapinfo or dextools to ensure there is high liquidity, especially when locked for at least a year.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: ETH 2.0 has still no Effect on ETH price on: December 12, 2020, 08:02:17 PM
Everyone know ETH 2.0 is recently Passed  and unfortunately I had not seen any positive changes in Ethereum Price .
I am so 😲 shocked that why ethereum 2.0 doesn't effect the price of ethereum just like bitcoin halving effect the bitcoin price like halving make BTC price higher . but Ethereum 2.0 doesn't show anything till now.
Please share your thaughts about this it will be pleasure for me

Maybe you've not been following the market at all, how on earth can you say ETH 2.0 didn't impact Ethereum's price positively? It actually caused a spike in price for ETH. However, we already know many sell the news in crypto and not otherwise, so if you were waiting for major pump when the ETH 2.0 staking full launch news was released, then you are getting things twisted. You don't even need to worry when holding ETH, from my own perspective of reasoning since it's proven to worth holding over time.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Many old coins are dead and abandoned by the developer, WHY? on: December 12, 2020, 06:06:18 PM
- No Interest
- No Development
- No Solid community
- The project no use-case at all

I really like the points you made here, most old dead projects have most of these factors affecting them. Imagine when members of a community supporting a project completely lose interest in it due to declining coin price or absence of updates or development, the project will crumble eventually. Also, there is a vital point you missed which is lack of funding to continue with the project. Some few genuine projects which lack funding and hence can't keep paying workers, or keep up with developing product, marketing etc, still go under the radar. Truth about most altcoin projects is that they won't last long term before they go extinct or exit scam, just very few last the test of time.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: When will the current Bull run stop on: December 11, 2020, 08:59:06 PM
I believe what drives this current crypto market is different from that of 2017, 2017 was about whales getting their hands on whatever and predicting/pushing prices up. This time around a lot of players are in the market, it is difficult to tell.

There is some sense in your statement, 2017 bull run was mainly due to hype from various influencers and whales doing their thing. This year, so many adoptions and mainstream news. From Facebook's Libra to PayPal adding crypto just to mention a few. I believe there will be correction which is happening already since the festive season is already here, many people need cash to spend. I think for now the market uptrend is on halt, maybe after this festive season the uptrend might commence.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is Polkadot going to Kill Ethereum? on: December 11, 2020, 02:15:29 PM
Most of the cryptocurrency users haven't even heard about Polkadot. And the OP is claiming that it is going to kill Ethereum. The biggest strength for Ethereum is not its technology. On the other hand, its biggest plus point is its acceptability. Even now, more than 90% of the new tokens are being created in the ERC-20 platform. None of the other platforms can even come close.

Actually OP is referring to possibility of polkadot overtaking Ethereum in future due to its scalability claims and other purported improved features, however I really like your points here. Ethereum's acceptability and already existing projects building on its blockchain is far ahead of any other altcoin. Ethereum developers keep coming up with innovation, hence I doubt if polkadot will be an ETH killer even in future. So many supposed "Ethereum killers" have gone extinct lol, time will tell if DOT has what it takes.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Questions about buying, holding, staking altcoins on: December 10, 2020, 07:55:03 PM
Binance exchange is the best place for new crypto users and traders, you don't have to worry about hacks or theft because binance team are capable of handling any threat, even if hackers managed to break down the exchange firewall they won't get away easier as binance can blacklist any address nowadays, they can easily return funds to users too

If you say Binance is the best place for newbie traders, I'll concur with you due to ease of trading and simple user interface. However saying there is no need to worry about hacks is baseless, there is need to be cautious about hacks when it comes to centralized exchanges. You don't just keep coins on exchanges for so long, using the exchange as personal wallet because anything can go wrong at anytime, I only send coins to exchanges when I need to trade not otherwise since all CEX can be hacked.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Don't invest for quick gains only on: December 10, 2020, 07:05:24 PM
I think the main hype for "fast" investment in crypto have passed a long time ago (during ico and ieo). Now in defi there's some hype but still it's not the same like 3 years ago.

By "fast investment" I believe you mean investing for quick gains, actually some people still invest for quick profit especially day traders, and it works for some. The most important thing is to make profit when it comes to altcoins, and convert profit to BTC in my opinion because most altcoins will fail in the long run, just few with real use cases and resilient team will stay for so long. Price action traders who are pro in technical analysis do invest for quick profit, it doesn't make any difference. Sometimes you still hold long term and at the end you lose, sometimes its favorable.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Email address exposure in spreadsheet on: December 10, 2020, 05:49:45 PM
It is very unfortunate for the bounty manager who still does not understand this risk,
so we must really feel worried about this, don't let our guard down, because phishing sites will always exist.

Some Bounty managers still do not hide email addresses which is awful. Last week I received phising mails containing cloned Kucoin exchange link, asking me to login to claim KCS rewards for a Kucoin campaign I didn't join. What if I ignorantly used the kucoin scam cloned site to login, my account would have been cleared. It's very important to hide mails on spreadsheet or at least hide a part of it. Security is very vital and hence should not be taken for granted.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Where DeFi is headed on: December 10, 2020, 10:06:17 AM
Actually, DeFi's goal is good by providing freedom, low transaction fees, providing better privacy, immutable and easy transactions.
Therefore, DeFi projects are in high demand immediately and there is hype this year, because DeFi provides something that CEFI
cannot give to investors. But unfortunately many scammers are taking advantage of DeFi's popularity to commit fraud. So now a lot of
DeFi has sprung up that don't have a clear purpose, so always do your research before choosing to invest in DeFi projects.

It's true that DEFI has made transactions easy, upholds user privacy, and transactions are swifter, but for now the transaction fee is not low like you mentioned. For instance uniswap transaction fees are still a lil bit high, even though we hope that fees will decline in future. On a general scale DEFI has impacted the crypto space positively and I do not see the trend like a bubble that will burst soon. There are still some lags in DEFI especially in security aspect, since platforms providing flash loans, staking have been hacked on several occasions.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Lame use cases on: December 09, 2020, 10:13:02 PM
The truth is that most of the projects we see in the market are designed to enrich the developers and not for the purpose of developing the industry. These projects promoters don't even make efforts in considering the impact of their projects or its use case, they just want to create tokens, get investors and make the best out of the market.

Your points are very true, most developers are just in for the money and do not care about the impact the project will create. For instance, a project having its use case as fighting corruption or promoting unity is baseless. So many projects with use cases that do not make any sense exist, most are just money grabs.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Whats your thought about New projects? on: December 09, 2020, 07:06:25 PM
I think we need to support new projects independently; either it is a copy cat project; or an update on existing projects;

Supporting a project which is copy cat in my opinion is not so cool, I like projects with their own concept or upgrade to an existing project. Unless maybe you have a different meaning to "copycat". For instance, after BTC, the reason why ETH was unique is because it came up with smart contracts and few unique features. I'm not saying every project should emanate with its own blockchain and all new features, but at least there should be something unique about a project.
