Is this some variation of a team drive that you get your gmail address added to or similar to the quickly dying .edu accounts?
5  Economy / Digital goods / Re: [$4.99] >> Dropshipping method << Passive income >> Easy,Fast,Cheap on: June 15, 2020, 05:38:58 PM
Is there really anything left that isn't common knowledge at this point about dropshipping?
6  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS] Intel DC P3600 Datasenter SSDs on: March 13, 2019, 05:06:32 AM
I might be interested if you can post/PM some of the SMART data on the SSDs. Their value can vary a lot depending on it.

Hey there. I have been quite busy as of late and instead of taking up a spot in the campaign I would like to let someone else have the chance to be in it. Hopefully I'll get the chance to rejoin in the future if I become more active. Thanks for the ride!
8  Economy / Services / Re: Upwork account approval on: June 10, 2018, 07:11:14 PM
From what I have heard from some freelancers, Upwork is not where you want to go if you are looking for a client. It would seem as if they are actively trying to find reasons to let freelancers do work for their client for the pre-arranged amount of money but later, when the job is done and the payment is sent, they start coming up with reasons to not pay and to "verify" people's identities and overall just make it a pain to actually get paid. The amount of hoops you have to go through definitely raises some red flags for the site, and I would recommend everyone to look elsewhere.

To clarify, this is about the site itself, not OP. The fact that OP is selling this kind of tells you the kind of system they have, though.
9  Economy / Digital goods / Re: [WTS] Telegram Investment Bot on: May 26, 2018, 02:19:39 AM
This thread is all "PMs" and no substance. The OP is extremely ambiguous and the most descriptive information regarding the bot's actual purpose is a mention of facilitating some sort of HYIP referral scheme. In case anyone isn't turned off by the sketchiness of this offer, be aware that you are most likely to gain nothing from this. At its best, you will be stealing other people's money and I do not really know what can be expected from this bot in terms of actual profit, if anything. I caution and advise everyone to stay away from this.
10  Economy / Digital goods / Re: Selling Virtual Reloadable CArds on: May 18, 2018, 10:58:19 PM
On top of the doubts already raised by the posters above me, I would like to say that many trusted (or at least somewhat successful) virtual card sellers in these forums have tried doing this before but they have all gotten restricted in some way. For example, in my end, I bought a card which worked fine for a few months but later the issuing bank restricted the card usage until you could provide proof of identity to them in person. In this case, pretty much everyone lost all of what they had, as the funds were just frozen. Luckily for me, I had no more $5 remaining inside. I would just note that no matter how reputable or honest the seller might be, these sort of things can still happen.
11  Economy / Services / Re: [GET] Telegram Group Scraper & Bot. on: May 15, 2018, 04:56:11 PM
I see a lot of misinformation regarding what you can do with the Telegram APIs on this thread. I do not know the reason behind OP needing to scrape groups for users, but I do have a bit of experience with both of Telegram's APIs. The Bot API, which is the one that lets you create a bot that can join group chats easily, does not allow in any way to obtain all of the users for a group until they send a message or enter/exit the group. On the other hand, the Telegram Client API does allow for this; however, this is much more different than the bot API. The Telegram Client API is meant to be implemented in Telegram clients and does not facilitate bot usage. This is done to prevent spam, which is something that OP might actually be looking to avoid. That being said, it is perfectly possible to do so by just using the latter API, just not as easy.
12  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2018-05-11] 8,200 BTC Moved From Mt. Gox Wallet, Possible Sell-Off Affects BTC on: May 11, 2018, 11:44:19 PM
This damn idiot could care less about Bitcoin. He is just tasked to do a job and he just dump coins on the market, without any thought to
how this would affect the price. If he used OTC methods, then the price would not have been influenced and he would get more for those

All our hand work just goes up in flames and he always time this dump, when the price is in a correction phase. This is f$%^& sabotage.  Angry

I can feel you, I think he knows what he is doing, I vividly remember that we have reach around $11,7000 about 2 months ago and enjoying another break out ran, but suddenly the market plummets and then someone discovered that the guy is actually offloading the coins. And similar incidents happen again, we are almost at $10,000 then this a**hole, dumps again, causing the market to react once more. Yeah, we really work hard from the last bottom of 6500 and everything went into thin air again. Back to square one and its gonna be another uphill climb once more.

I am not a fan of how you are presenting the issue. There is no "work" happening by anyone to influence the value of Bitcoin directly. Such a thing is impossible. The value of Bitcoin comes from the perceived value of the potential users of it. Somebody selling off their Bitcoin holdings, whatever the source of these might be, is a completely fair move when it comes to Bitcoin economics. The Mt. Gox trustee here just decided to sell those 8,000, and that is a completely valid action. It is accurately describing the balance of supply and demand of Bitcoin. With your logic, you might as well blame those people who have the stop-loss orders in place which are simply contributing towards the domino effect described in the article.

Additionally, as others mention, this is speculation. There is no confirmation that the coins were actually sold and also no confirmation that the downward trend of the past 24 hours was caused by this even if they were sold in the first place.
13  Economy / Reputation / Re: A list of top 10 scams on the " Digital Goods " market. on: May 03, 2018, 04:11:40 PM
As is normal here, sadly this thread will be moved to "scam accusations" so no one who needs to see it would.  Scams are allowed to perpetuate forever here but these posts go into neverneverland. 

This is honestly pretty terrible, but in my opinion, if we made a thread about the most common ways of scamming with digital goods, it would have a fair chance of staying in that section as long as it was not directed towards any users in particular. Something sort of what I described in my previous post would probably get the green light by the mods, although of course, I can't be sure. If I have time later tonight I might do it myself, but it does get annoying to have the same sort of sales in there that for those of us who are experienced are obviously scams.
14  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [02-05-2018] Mastercard adds New Nodes To its Blockchain Network on: May 02, 2018, 08:14:32 PM
What's the point of having nodes and blockchain if the whole network is controlled by one entity? Blockchain was created to enable Bitcoin by solving the problem of trust in decentralized environment. But there's no such problem within Mastercard, any problems with their network can be more efficiently solved with centralized databases.

Adding more nodes to your network (especially if they are hosted in different states and countries), regardless of how centralized it is, strengthens your network and makes it less exposed to attacks on one part of your network. It's actually very simple, the more well distributed nodes you have online, the less subject you are to failure and potential malicious attacks. In other words, they in their own way are decentralizing their data and operations. I know it may sound weird to people, but that's what's happening, and it's actually a smart move.

Right, all of this is quite true. The notion of what a blockchain involves seems quite skewed in crypto communities. On top of what 1Referee said above, the blockchain technology also has the benefit of validating all of the inputs and outputs of transactions just because of its nature: a corrupt "chain" would not hold the blockchain together. You cannot make illegal transactions happen, just as with Bitcoin. Furthermore, the blockchain technology was here since far before Bitcoin was, albeit is still relatively recent. Companies have been using it for quite a while, especially logistics, freight, and shipping companies. The workings in that industry aren't much different either: the inputs need to match the outputs or the transaction (such as a shipping transaction) is not valid.
15  Economy / Reputation / Re: A list of top 10 scams on the " Digital Goods " market. on: May 02, 2018, 07:20:36 PM
We should also make a similar list of common "digital goods" that may not quite qualify as scams but are pretty misleading in what they are or have the potential to become a scam or stop working but it may not be immediately obvious. The first thing that comes to mind is all of these "random steam key" sellers. These are usually selling useless keys that they have gotten through bundles or giveaways and aren't actually "random". What they do is pretend they don't know the games that the keys are for, even when they definitely do, and also advertise good games that are not actually obtainable. Same thing goes with many software keys or licenses, especially Adobe. These usually do not last longer than a couple of months before they are deactivated or revoked.
16  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2018-04-27] France Slashes Cryptocurrency Tax Rate from 45% to a Flat 19% on: April 28, 2018, 04:19:19 AM
This is an example to follow for other countries. I am not an accountant or a tax specialist, but I believe that Bitcoin should be taxed as any other asset everywhere. The main problem, in my opinion, comes when the laws regarding Bitcoin or cryptocurrency taxation are unclear. It makes the most sense right now that it be taxed as an assets or capital gain.

Assets are not usually taxed. Capital gains are. You do not have to pay any taxes if you just hold bitcoins, although some jurisdictions have imposed taxes on your wealth.
The capital gains tax rate on cryptocurrencies does seem to be excessive. Capital gains are created by investing your (taxed) income, so there is a logic to having the capital gains rate lower than the normal income tax rate.

Right, that's what I believe should be done, but unfortunately it's not the case everywhere. I completely agree with capital gains being taxed lower as well, and with pretty much all you are saying. Property tax, however, does apply in some countries and I believe this is also what you are referring to when you say that some jurisdictions have imposed taxes on wealth itself, which in my opinion does not make any sense. I do not think cryptocurrencies have excessive rates everywhere, and I am not sure of the specifics of it inside the U.S. either as I usually just keep my bitcoins as such.

The main problem, in my opinion, comes when the laws regarding Bitcoin or cryptocurrency taxation are unclear. It makes the most sense right now that it be taxed as an asset or capital gain. There also exists the taxation format in which it is taxed with an equivalent to sales tax, which results in double taxation: once when the Bitcoin is bought and once more when it is sold. Technically that would not apply when you don't actually sell the Bitcoin, but even then, when you buy something using cryptocurrency, you would be paying sales tax again on that item, so it would be no different than trading with property, which is the bad thing about considering it such.
18  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2018-04-19] Bitcoin 'miners' are losing money at any price below $8,600: MS on: April 21, 2018, 02:04:26 AM
I was initially surprised by this article, but I have found that the cost of the equipment is now a major factor. The difficulty is so high now that an S9, which costs over $1000, hardly mines anything any more.

The cost of the hardware has always been a bery big factor ever since the beginning. One of the main problems of mining Bitcoin is how volatile the price is, which chanhes your ROI time significantly while not having absolutely any control over whether you actually profit or not. It has always been just a gamble since your fate is in other people's hands.

While the exchange rate has been going down in the last couple of months, I believe this has been a good thing for some parts of the market. I work with video editing on a personal, and sometimes professional level. I also like to game ocassionally. When the value of Bitcoin went down, other cryptos went down with it as well, and so did the profit from buying graphics cards to mine those cryptocurrencies. With the fall in demand, the prices started falling back to what they were before, which I personally consider a very good thing. Same thing goes for memory. I have not tried to do the math behind where the threshold is for altcoins, but it has definitely had an effect.
19  Economy / Digital goods / Re: Get your .EDU email for $2! on: April 15, 2018, 06:27:08 PM
From the replies I am seeing on thos post, your domain seems to be mostly dead. Does it, or did it ever, work for unlimited storage in Google Drive? That would be about the only thing that I have not seen mentioned on this thread that could potentially lead me or others to buy it. You said that the login type is Gmail for the email access, which leads me to believe that it is quite possible for it to have the education access to Gsuite which should, in theory, include unlimited storage. Please let me know what you find out.
I have been informed that it has been working with Google drive. I don't know if this has changed recently.

If it does, indeed, include the Google G-Suite unlimited storage for being an education account then I would be willing to buy. This is probably the most important selling point to me and would definitely be worth the $2 that you are asking for. If you could check whether this does actually work then that would be amazing. Feel free to PM me if/when you do. Thanks!
20  Economy / Invites & Accounts / Re: [WTS] MSDN Invites. Only 60$. Take it while is stock ! Escrow Available! TRUSTED on: April 13, 2018, 12:59:26 PM
Hey there. It has been a while since I last saw a regular (what seems to be) BizSpark MSDN Invite offering here in the forums. I have some experience dealing with these and would like to warn anyone interested in buying that Microsoft's policy with invites has changed. As of a year or two ago, it has become possible for the admins of an MSDN subscription to change their invites around, which makes it much easier for sellers to scam customers. The way this would go is that you buy an invite, get it, release the escrow, and later the admin revokes the invite to give it to someone else. It is because of this (and a couple of other reasons) that invite sellers have sort of died out and now the only thing you can find for the most part is the proper sale of admin accounts. I am not saying OP will necessarily scam anyone, but I did want to mention this.
