Seems like they find a new role in the market, do you see space for it ?

https://www.androidauthority.com/htc-exodus-865928/amp/

it's still pretty small market for now, but maybe it's enough for them. Once the crypto adoption grows enough, there surely will be space for devices like this. I have heard many bitcoin phone attempts by now
22  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Fixing income from BTC? on: July 31, 2018, 02:04:59 PM
Hello!

I'm very interested how do you fix crypto income. I know that there are some crypto exchanges where you have a crypto-fiat pair but they are small with high fees. I prefer to fix my bitcoin and altcoin income in something stable. As for fiat pairs - no exchanges, for some tokens like Tether or True USD or Havven they look like a scam. However, i like to trade on Binance, so i use Tether as a stable coin but i suggest it is too risky because Tether made a lot of suspicious transactions.

I'd like to know what are you using? Can you give me some advices?
Thanks!

P.S. I mean i dont want to went out to fiat. I'd like to trade but when i want to close my deal and sell the BTC i don't want to go to fiat because it is too expensive.I'll continue my trade in a while, so need not fiat

There is a new stable currency called true usd, you might want to have a look at that one. You should be able to redeem your tokens for usd in case you decide to do that

I mean Why bitcoin? Why waste huge energy in mining. As everyone know bitcoin is useless in terms
of usability.
My question to bitcointalk users :

Is this possible that any altcoin become no 1 on coinmarketcap and bitcoin disappeare

I think this can be possible, what you think so comment below...



Calling bitcoin useless can be done only by an ignorant who has absolutely no idea on cryptocurrencies or economics at all. Do yourself a favor and learn something before posting.

Because it requires a lot of power and electrical resources are not small, the process of mining (mining) cryptocurrency is usually done with a special computer. Can be a desktop that is fitted with many graphics cards to server farm.

But lately emerged an alternative form of software that allows users with laptops or regular computers to participate in mining without needing to spend to buy expensive devices.

The Honeyminer startup software runs dynamic mining by combining the user's computer into a pool of thousands of other computers. Each computer contributes power to the cryptocurrency mining process.

The "power" donated comes from the computer GPU. If it is not in use, then the computer GPU will be used to participate in processing the mining process together with GPU kompter-other computers incorporated in the pool Honeyminer.

Thus, while the GPU capability of a computer may be small, the combined power of thousands of GPUs can generate significant resources for this collective mining process.

I find it difficult to believe this can be profitable. I read about their service and I understand you can make max few bucks per day if you have advanced set up. Sounds easier to buy some
25  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why do people need to use Bitcoin for Money laundering? on: July 31, 2018, 01:50:10 PM
Between 2004 and 2010, HSBC laundered Billions of Dollars for the Mexican Drug cartels and nobody blinked an eye. After

7 years of doing this, they got busted and they paid US$1.9bn in fines. {This could be recovered in profits, within a few

weeks} Most people saw this as a slap on the wrist for the people who were involved with this. Not one person working for the

Bank got jail time for doing this.  Roll Eyes  https://observer.news/featured/5-years-ago-hsbc-fined-record-us1-9bn/

Ross Ulbricht, was sentenced to life in prison without parole for creating and running Silk Road, which allegedly facilitated

the sale of $250 million worth of drugs.

                                    Why are we seeing such double standards, when Bitcoin is involved?


What happened with HSBC is not right at all, they should have paid for what they did. But the thing with silk road is also serious crime, it's not alright to let people buying drugs and whatever else illegally.
26  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Strong hands VS Weak hands, who will win? on: July 25, 2018, 08:21:26 AM
We have breached the $7000 Bitcoin price and the weak hands are running for the hills again. The more experienced Bitcoiners are secretly smiling, because they have seen this before and they are saying, "Calm down, little Padawan"

Some greedy old timers are fuelling the fire, because they know those with little faith will sell their coins to them, if they can scare the wits out of them.

The Trolls are coming out of their holes again, beating their drums and singing, "The Bitcoin Bubble has bust again!....."

We know the Story, because we have watched it play out over and over again. It is the Strong hands VS the Weak hands and we know who will be the Winner, when we hit the Moon.

Pick your side and let the battle begin!  Grin

absolutely, weak hands are totally doomed in this game. But it's actually good for us who are not afraid to invest when the market goes down due to those weak panic sellers

Over 600 upvotes on r/bitcoin and over 100 RT on twitter, but now we need your help to make the post reach Elon Musk:
https://twitter.com/altpocket/status/1020603727647035392


"Hi Tony stark! (aka @elonmusk)
When will we have the ability to buy a tesla with #Bitcoin?

RT so its bigger chance that he sees it! @Tesla @SpaceX @Hyperloop"


As you maybe know he is the most active on twitter so please press the link and help us get more attention by retweeting it!

Good effort, we should help out with this. But please change your title as it looks like he's already accepting the Bitcoin which is not the case. Make it say To accept bitcoin or something similar

Google already tells you the value of Bitcoin without leaving the search engine

Before, it was necessary to resort to Coinbase, to Investing, or to other similar exchange platforms, to know the value of Bitcoin. Now, finally, Google has introduced it, that is, we can see the price of Bitcoin without even having to leave the search engine. Although they have done it in a slightly depressive moment for the cryptocurrencies since they are a bit low right now, but nothing happens, it always helps and also soon everything goes up. To read more: https://www.adslzone.net/2018/07/14/prec-bitcoin-google/

it's not to me. When i search for bitcoin or bitcoin price, it still only gives the links to popular bitcoin websites, there is no google ticker on top as for some other currencies
29  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: ⚛️ [ANN] Bitcoin Atom - Fork 1:1 of Bitcoin - Atomic Swap Powered ⚛️ on: July 24, 2018, 08:46:21 AM


I'm not sure about the second option, but for majority of people who only to easily buy and sell crypto, atomic swaps will surely do the job just fine. let's hope to have it ready asap
Very interesting theory. And how long can it take in the first place? And then what kind of price can be expected in the future? I'm looking into buying, and I think it might be a good idea now.

if they launch their exchange in August, the price can easily climb to 20$. Once it works properly and they know how to sell it, we're getting into 3 digits numbers for sure
30  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Big warning to crypto community on astroturfing hype on: July 23, 2018, 01:18:14 PM
The following has come to my attention:

-Someone in a youtube comment mentioned that bitcointalk is full of third worlders who post gibberish replies in threads in order to gain post counts but I'm afraid that it's worse than that. I believe it is fully automated forum bots that is operated by either governments or wealthy private citizens or possibly criminal enterprises. In my own thread, Burianchain, several mysterious nonsensical replies followed after my post and I am now sure that it is bots.

-The very same bot networks are used to leverage pump and dumps on exchanges and create social media fomo. My experience on an exchange where the Museum Token is trading is that they suffer constant fraudulent account registrations and voting fraud.

-I recently registered on one of the biggest freelance sites as a freelancer to do some charitable work for the crypto community and while scrolling through job listings it is full of offers like "i need 300 professional linkedin accounts that can bypass telephone registration".

So the takeaway here is be very mindful that there is large scale, possibly government scale, astroturfing going on in this forum and on prolific social media sites such as linkedin.

Of course this is not a new phenomena with bought followers and so on, but it is quite sophisticated and deeply deceptive.

I am aware that counter measures are in production to verify online activity.

Be mindful.

third worlders you're mentioning can be easily confused with bots. And here is plenty of them. I would say rather if you're seeing a pattern, most likely it means you're encountering one person with multiple accounts.
31  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What are stable coins? on: July 23, 2018, 01:16:30 PM
What are stable coins and why do we need them?
This is one topic that catch my attentions. I have this article about stable coins and they are attracting big league investors. Will quote some part of the article.
"stable coins are designed to keep their price fixed, making them immune to manipulation trading. It could be argued that price stability will help to bring about the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies, as they are seeming more reliable and, therefore, attractive to major financial players. The recent IBM deal — along with other investments mentioned in this article — partly confirm that assumption."

Three types of stable coins can be outlined, depending on the type of collateralization they entail.

1. Fiat-collateralized
2. Non-collateralized
3. Crypto-collateralized

To know more and read the detailed article. Pls chck this link.
https://cointelegraph.com/news/island-of-stability-stable-coins-keep-attracting-big-league-investors/amp


I agree that stable coins are heavily helping crypto as it shows that the crypto currencies are only the tool that can represent anything, it's not only bitcoin. I support stable coins for sure
32  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin's strength is that nobody can crack it yet on: July 23, 2018, 01:15:13 PM
And it will remain so for a long time.
No government, no parties can effectively ban it and put their hand on it. They would have to ban internet first. Not likely.
That would be the end of free world we know.

No single entity can, that's true. Only if more users would put together to destroy it, then it might be possible. Either way, it's not likely and especially it's the best we have
33  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Facebook shares fall -5% after banning Bitcoin on: July 18, 2018, 10:21:25 AM
Shares of Facebook fell by almost 5 percent on Monday following research claiming the recent data breach that exposed 50 million people is a systemic problem for the social network.It was "made clear in the reporting is that Facebook did not make sufficient efforts to recover users' data, which then informed ad targeting in the 2016 US election. It also did not disclose the leak to users or investors," Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser wrote in a note to clients Monday, as quoted by CNBC.

"We think this episode is another indication of systemic problems at Facebook … We see enhanced risks for the company, but no near-term tangible impact on its business." The company recommends selling Facebook shares, saying they are likely to fall from $185 to $152 per share. "Regulators will take a tougher line on sharing data across Facebook's apps, especially including WhatsApp and the core Facebook platform."

but that was not caused by ICO ads ban, it was because what happened with cabridge analytica followed by nuremous lawsuits against facebook. It's important to make the facts straight
34  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin mining is costly... on: July 18, 2018, 10:19:23 AM
Currently bitcoin mining uses specialized computers called ASICs which are specifically designed to solve the puzzles requires to mine bitcoin. Due to their specific nature, the machines are custom designed and manufactured. As they are not mass produced, they cost more to buy.

they're costly, but they're the only option to mine bitcoins. As with everything, bitcoin mining is more profitable for large mining farms that can buy cheaper miners and cut their electricity costs
35  Economy / Speculation / Re: Great news everywhere today and Bitcoin price goes vertically up, again!!! on: July 18, 2018, 10:17:17 AM
Great news everywhere today and Bitcoin price goes vertically again!!!

Shotted from 6000$ range to 7500$ in few hours after Bloomberg announced that BlackRock is looking to invest in cryptocurrencies and Goldman Sachs will hire David Solomon, current president of the New-York headquartered multinational Lloyd Blankfein in October. This guy is crypto-friendly let's say and this is huge news because trillions will be pumped soon.

They will take their positions now when is still cheap. Be wise guys do the same what the big guys do!!! Take your positions the race is started, again.

Taking into consideration last weeks looks like the bullish market is ready to start. What do you think am I right?

let's see if this is the start of huge pumps, but I don't necessarily think it's great for bitcoin. It would mean a crazy influx of noobs who know nothing and will sell with first dip again
36  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin is the world’s 6th largest currency on: July 18, 2018, 10:16:13 AM
being in the 6th step it ˇs a big advance. It is difficult to know when bitcoin will be the first largest currency, but according to the statistics, on 2026...

don't trust predictions like that... I believe bitcoin can become world's largest currency once it starts being used as a currency worldwide. That might be even sooner than that
37  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin core safe to store all of my bitcoin? on: July 18, 2018, 10:15:30 AM
I am looking for the best wallet to safely store my bitcoin for the next lot of years (who knows how long) is bitcoin core a safe place to do this or should i look at others?

core wallet itself is surely safe, but it's as safe as your computer is. Are you sure you have no viruses in it? If that is the case and you have the required memory to sync whole blockchain, it's a safe bet
38  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: ⚛️ [ANN] Bitcoin Atom - Fork 1:1 of Bitcoin - Atomic Swap Powered ⚛️ on: July 17, 2018, 07:39:15 AM
The future of bitcoin is here now, looking after the BTC of the past.ATOM will be huge in the next few years!

I believe the same thing. Atomic swaps are going to be a great alternative to OTC trading which is needed so much. In time they can maybe make it even highly liquid alternative to centralized exchanges
39  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: ⚛️ [ANN] Bitcoin Atom - Fork 1:1 of Bitcoin - Atomic Swap Powered ⚛️ on: July 16, 2018, 06:42:21 AM


we know you do. Don't you worry about the people complaining, there are many more who believe in atomic swaps technology and need it desperately to ditch regular exchanges...
People of course still a lot and always like new. But I think we need to value the community that are available in the future to multiply them. This is a matter of trust, it is difficult to win, only things prove intentions.

community is the most important part of every crypto project in my opinion. There are some cool projects without a community, therefore no one is interested in them. BCA is not one of them
coin dead!

only dead thing here is your brain which doesn't work. The devs behind the project are doing something great and it of course takes time. All you can do is making fud with your broken English

Some people are asking, "How can Bitcoin helps the world's economic?"

I think this is the right answer. Bitcoin has become a currency for a nation that is currently supporting all kinds of people. Bitcoin has become as an international currency at this point. Once again, technologies help the world to solve its problems. This can raise Bitcoin reputation among economic discussions. And also will give positive mood to Bitcoin markets.


I believe it can make international payments much easier than they're today. Also fees would be much lower. Anyone can access bitcoin wallet, that i also a game changer
