If one person does not have big influence on national or global policies or regulations on crypto, one tweet does not have big influence on the market. Peter Schiff is a bull bitcoiners and I caught his idea to support bitcoin and gold, silver. Gold and silver are safe haven for wars, conflicts, hyper inflation and Schiff is right.

Kiyosaki stated about his investment perspective on Bitcoin, Gold and Silver. He is bullish on three assets. I'd like to choose bitcoin as its convenience for me to move my money. Bitcoin transactions are easy to use and I can store or bring my bitcoin to any place on the planet. I don't have to bring gold or silver bars around, don't have to store them in Vaults.

Bitcoin is better than gold. You can call it as digital gold or anything but at the end it is bitcoin and I think it is enough to call it as bitcoin. Why do we have to compare bitcoin with gold and try to use a fake name digital gold for bitcoin?

Bitcoin has a public ledger, a public total supply and scheduled halvings in block rewards. The Bitcoin block reward chart from Bitcoin visual. Every halving, more people will hear about bitcoin and adoption will rise that result in price growth to a new era. Bitcoin Halving, Explained.

You don't know how many gold are there on our planet? No halving with gold. It is enough to not compare gold and bitcoin.
4  Economy / Services / Re: Portfolio Management services on: December 01, 2020, 03:26:42 AM
Yes it is like a fund manager only. And I have been a full-time trader for 3 years.
Not sure if I can a link here. The returns are good and the minimum portfolio size that I consider is $10k. But fund managers take 2% of the fund size + 15% of profits.
So that way, it is way high! And I am thinking of further increasing it only because it is an exceptional return that I am giving
Being a full time trader and have experience for many years it does not a matter for your portfolio management service. There are winners and losers on the market and some people are losers on the market after many years they are in and trade on market.

Your past portfolio management records definitely can not be publicly given to everyone that I understand. If you are due seriously to run a service, you need to provide basic records from your past works.

The minimum portfolio size for each user is $10,000 that is not small, more than 0.5 Bitcoin. How about the security of the fund you will manage? I am not saying how cheap or expensive your cost is but let's start by security for original fund.

I don't think it is a problem. Merit exist to appreciate good posters, not exclusive for tech guys. And getting merit there is not as easy as it sounds.
Guys like @nullius is just exception, and there are limited guys like @nullius, one of the shooting stars in the forum. There are so many ways to contribute and receive merits: from technical discussions/ help, data analytics, infographics, guides, scam accusations; or simple on-topic, and helpful posts that satisfy needs of thread's starters. Being naturally constructive, helpful and patient, merits will come later.

Sure, you can rank up from scratch to Hero or Legendary member. There is a topic that observes and lists ranked up users.
⭐ Forum chronicle - UP Rank List - Congratulations! (BPIP Merit stat, Trust) ⭐
The list does  not point out which users are purely self-made users, which users are half-self-made users, but there are so many self-made Members, Full Members, and Senior Members. They all will become self-made Hero or Legendary in months and years to come if they will stay on their tracks.
Therefore, I believe that long list of ranked up users will stimulate you to start from scratch.
7  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Steps to check potential phising links on: June 23, 2019, 08:09:41 AM
Knowing the URL link if it is a phishing site or not is just one of the first steps in identifying if it is one but surely it isn't enough. Some phishing links really do have a carbon copy of the real website and they also get a convincing domain name (if you aren't familiar with their real domain of the website) to come with it so really being an observant people and looking at security patches and logos is your only way of telling if its a phishing website or not.
Exactly. So, to avoid this, one of the best thing to do is using bookmark tools, that are available on browsers. I also wrote a guide about this months ago. Please check. [GUIDE] Using bookmark tool in browsers to mark bitcointalk topics/ posts

Added the newest plan of @theymos.

Addblocker subscription for signatures
I've thought that it'd be interesting to publish an adblocker subscription for signatures. You can block individual users' signatures with eg., and/or you can try to block signature ads generally with filters like table.

Userscripts are a good idea. Let me know if some small change on my end will help your userscript a lot.
9  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Don't join spam bounties. Easy money does not help you to (quickly) get rich! on: June 23, 2019, 08:04:41 AM
The problem with altcoin signature campaigns is often in the bounty managers. They accept everyone that applies as long as they have the appropriate rank. The applicants post history isn't checked and therefore the quality of the posts is below standards.
Managers of those campaigns don't check post quality of applicants at beginnings, and don't check post quality of participants during their time joining campaigns.

Agreed. Reputable campaign managers eliminate shitposters at starts, and during their participations, they will be eliminated if they don't meet minium post quality ask by campaign managers.
This wouldn't happen with any of the reputable campaign managers that we have that manage Bitcoin campaigns. The solution is applying the same guidelines and standards in the altcoin section that we already have for bitcoin campaigns. 
10  Other / Meta / Re: Can We have bitcointalk user interface changed to something like Facebook UI? on: June 21, 2019, 10:44:25 PM
Just imagine, this is an old school forum, people need to get used to it before they can start to shitpost a lot...
If the UI would allow to post as simple as FB or other social media sites, there would not be possible to hire enough mods to stop the spam...

If such thing will be applied, we don't need to stake Bitcoin address, because people mostly self-disclose their identities on Facebook. They don't care about their identities can be used (abused) to steal their funds and lots of others shady things. In other words, Facebook need as many new (real) users as possible, the forum does not. What the forum need is as many quality users as possible, we don't need to see new (real) shitposters.
11  Other / Meta / Re: [BRAINSTORM] Any requests for custom extensions/user scripts for BitcoinTalk? on: June 20, 2019, 04:39:33 AM
Yes, mainly to avoid phishing sites. Because there are so many image storage/ upload providers, that we are not able to know them all. It's better if we can see images without clicking on links and visit those sites. My trick works fine if images attached in posts published recently, we can easily visit post history and find that post. However, it will costs a little more time if we have to find posts made months ago, just to view images.
So, the question is, if you want to see images posted by Newbies (and don't buy Copper Membership). You can directly click on links to see images, but this way will put you under risks of phising link traps. Clicking on links is fine if you know well about those sites, but the fact is there are so many sites provide image uploads, so you are not able to know them all.  Consequently, if you have such habit, you might instantly click on links to unknow sites, that are potentially phising sites. Be careful!
12  Other / Meta / Re: [BRAINSTORM] Any requests for custom extensions/user scripts for BitcoinTalk? on: June 20, 2019, 04:25:39 AM
Excellent idea! It is just a beginning of amazing upcoming things (userscripts/ addons). It is too soon to think of groups (categories) of userscripts or add-ons, but I believe when suggestion from community become larger, OP should sort them out into groups (categories). To clarify, some sort of groups (categories) like:
- Forum UI
- Archive tool
- Signature screening tool
- Flag screening tool
- etc.

BTW, you reminded me that months ago, I saw addons for Bitcointalk Theme, there: ✔️ GREEN THEME/STYLE for | 2019.
Orginated from that topic, I created my topic: [Guide] Viewing images without quoting posts/ OPs.
Can you (or others) can build an userscript to view Images without quoting posts/ OPs, and don't have to spend a little time to visit post histories?
13  Other / Meta / Re: Can We have bitcointalk user interface changed to something like Facebook UI? on: June 19, 2019, 11:40:26 PM
I believe Yes! This coin will be a game changer. As it is backed up a few big companies like PP, Master card and Coinbase etc. Also, more than 2.2 Billion people who are using Social media will be using it, It surely going to take down bitcoin.
I believe No! Because the Whitepaper of Libra presents that fact that the coin will destroy core idea of crypto currencies, and it is too far away from decentralization. We don't need centralized crypto currencies. Someone can launch such coins, like Libra, and those coins might survive, grow well, and accepted, but to replace bitcoin, and other powerful, widely accepted decentralized crypto currencies. I would say No! Crypto Newbies will easily accept Libra, but they will sooner or later realize their mistakes by using a centralized coin. Facebook, itself is a centralized social media platform. Together, using Facebook and Libra put users under high risks of ID leaks.
14  Other / Meta / Re: Can We have bitcointalk user interface changed to something like Facebook UI? on: June 19, 2019, 02:34:12 PM
Will Libra be able to replace Bitcoin? I believe it won't. So, I don't think we should ask the question in OP, because both Facebook and its coins, Libra are worse than, and Bitcoin, respectively. Facebook platform also does not have good systems to control their quality of their community posts. Actually, they have reports but such things are not enough for huge platform like Facebook. Reporters should have rewards from their good reports.
15  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: [Guide] Viewing images without quoting posts/ OPs on: June 19, 2019, 07:47:56 AM
Another trick to view image if the one who posted it is a newbie is to use tools like EZviewer, an add-on for Chrome. Not sure about the security so do your own research. With that plug-in you can directly preview a link inside your tab, so you don't have to right click and open it, but basically, it works the same. Might not be perfect to prevent getting phished if you're not careful with the link that you previewed.

DYOR & DWYOR as always.
Thank you for the trick, that is helpful. However, to be honest with you, I am not a fan of add-ons, becasue I am a very simple guy, and would like to use available official features, rather than install additional features, such as add-ons. If the forum already has a trick to view images from newbies, without requirement to click on links to see images, I think we should use it.

I will update OP in coming hours.
16  Other / Meta / Re: Can a feature be added to the trust page that lists flags supported or opposed on: June 18, 2019, 11:09:35 PM
I totally agreed with the @bones261's suggestion. Such list of support / oppose flags for users from profile pages will help them more easily to follow all accounts they support or oppose flag accusations. Such list is also help them to more conveniently go through and review their supports or oppositions in the past, for future adjustments if flagged projects turn to better or worse. Without the official list (from the forum), users can use LoyceVclub's flag list, but it is less convenient, because at least users have to sort out and find their names in the list, before being able to review and adjust their flags/ supports/ oppositions.
17  Other / Meta / Re: Can We have bitcointalk user interface changed to something like Facebook UI? on: June 18, 2019, 01:39:27 PM
What is facebook? Smiley

I don't use it because it is full of UI ( useless information ).
Why, which has strong position in crypto, has to follow Facebook, that is a newbie in crypto? My opinion is: NO. Not only because its UI (Useless Information, mentioned by @JetCash), but also its nearly useless Facebookcoin, namely Libra. There are a Libra's WhitePaper, and theymos' first opinion on Libra after seeing its site and whitepaper.
If they make a permissionless cryptocurrency similar to Bitcoin, good! Then freedom in the world will be increased. But I really doubt that this is going to happen. Right now their paper reads like a standard scamcoin vaporware paper, and I currently judge there to be approximately 0% chance of them actually allowing anyone to use the system anonymously and freely like you can with real cryptocurrencies.
18  Other / Meta / Re: [Discussion] The introduction and enforcement of [TAGS] on: June 18, 2019, 09:58:21 AM
Among those ones suggested in the OP, I only agreed with Guide tag. Because we already have specific places for the rest (as @Welsh wrote): from Discussion (Bitcoin/ altcoin); Announcement (ANN), to beginner & help (question and help mostly relate each other, so I think they should be apperaed in one board/ subboard, in B& H or whatever board). Question should be emphasized with Question mark (?), like what @theymos wrote to help forum users made better topic tittles.

In conclusion, I don't think we need such tags.
19  Other / Meta / Re: Signature Character limits on: June 17, 2019, 11:21:52 AM
If it is, the next step might be disabling signature campaigns which pay their participants in altcoins or tokens (not Bitcoin). After all, the last step might be disabling all signature campaign, but I guess we might not see such action in coming months. I saw post quality changed positively, and forum users tend to be more constructive. For spammers, they already get perma-bans or nukes, and will be get such punishments more.
I am still waiting for activation of reporter badges, that are another motivation to eliminate bad posters.

When theymos launched merit system in early of 2018, he wrote that if spamming does not decrease and such annoyance from spam permissive signature won't be controlled or at least, reduced; he would consider to disable all signature campaigns paid in altcoins or tokens; or even more seriously disable all signature and related industry. Fortunately, merit system works, and recently a plagiabot works, so we might still see signature campaigns. Generally, participants will have to make better quality posts, it does not equal to high quality posts. But, at least they stop or reduce copy & paste; then reduce pace of spamming.
