1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Binance CEO finally admitted shilling both BTC and BNB on: January 09, 2020, 05:54:10 PM
The CEO of popular cryptocurrency exchange Binance, Changpeng Zhao, has admitted that he personally has been shilling not only his exchange’s own utility coin, Binance Coin (BNB), but also Bitcoin (BTC).

Zhao asserts that what is good for Bitcoin is good for BNB and it is his interest, and the cryptocurrency community’s at large, for both to be doing well.

Click here to read the full news

Okay now that he admitted, is it a good thing just for the meantime?

For me, I think I’m a bit surprised about him admitting that. Shilling both BNB and BTC? How do you guys react on this one?

Do you think Changpeng Zhao’s shilling both cryptos are reasonable? Or it should not be necessary at all? I would like to hear some of your feedback, opinion or reaction about CZ’s shilling?


It is not a surprise that he shill his own coin and BTC.  It is given knowing how he pumped hard his own coin up to almost $40.  And yes it is reasonable.  You need to market your own enterprise and that is what CZ is doing.

You are not wrong. CZ shilled bnb last year to a new record high. It was pretty obvious that CZ indulges in shilling but I didn't bother much especially when he's shilling a quality coin and respectful about it. The problem is not the shilling but how some people like Justin Sun abuses it. That's what irks most people
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: 9 of the top Masternode coins for 2020 on: January 09, 2020, 05:01:45 PM
I have run dash masternode in 2018 and i just sold them all when crypto goes to the peak price again at the middle of 2019. Honestly, maybe some people will think if that will be very profitable but for me, that's a big risk decision as the problem will not be on how much annual yield that will be got by the masternode but your deposit amounts could go to the bottom anytime. Remember in the last year the price of dash was around 100$ and right now it has been losing more than a half from its price. it's too risky for me personally to bet on masternode again especially for the new MN just like energi which was requiring a lot of money.

I can equally say the same here. Sold all my dash and ventured into PIVX at its early stage and it's one of my profitable coin till date. Hopefully, Energi can leave me with a new sumptuous record in my hands. I love the Energi project and I have invested as well. Although there's limit to mh loyalty Smiley
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Too much projects, good projects cant reach crypto ethusiasts on: January 09, 2020, 02:30:15 PM
Good projects will always be advertised but how without it? As for the services that advertise projects, I would not particularly trust them because for money you can buy almost any rating anywhere.

Rating systems now is a no help at all, they are used by those who are able to pay. So we need to study the project very carefully. Try to set standards and focus only with quality one that will impress you at the same time will make you so curious that you wanted to try it and dig more information regarding it.

The rating sites mostly offer paid reviews for those that can pay truly but then asides that, the crypto industry is overwelmed with projects with a larger majority of them shit coins. From a practical perspective, it's now far more tougher to sift good projects from the bulk than it was three years ago
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: An uncertain future of Libra! Is it good for the crypto traders? on: January 08, 2020, 06:19:13 PM
Libra will be good for cryptocurrency traders because the coins will be stable like tether and others related stable coins in the crypto market. That aside, Libra to me; will likely have an approval from the SEC and other significant agencies because of the foundation it was built or intend to be built. So, traders will still be able to make a living from the said coin.

I am more interested in the applicability or useablilty it brings to the crypto industry. Libra with its network with the Facebook community in tune of 2 Billion individuals will single handedly drive crypto adoption by over 20 percent according to research. Sec Knows how powerful and influential Libra can be and thus they want a control over it. My curiosity is why Zuckerberg and its team are not yielding. What are the power plays behind the scene
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Website that will tell you how rich you really are? on: January 08, 2020, 06:00:33 PM
Hi community members,
 please do you know about some website where you put how many coins do you have and it will show at what number of richest addresses you belong? For top altcoins and Bitcoin? I mean for example you have 10 Ethereum and it will tell you that you are the 1000th richest person/address in the network.  Wink

This will not be too difficult to create if there's demand for it. Demands often drives creativities. A similar tool such as whale alert provides information of large transfers of cryptos in millions to notify and impending dump or pump. The app or website you seek will operate using similar model or principle
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Withdrew 60k USDC from Binance and it doesn't show on etherscan. Lost 60k???? on: January 08, 2020, 11:45:04 AM
Am i missing something? I don't usually use UDSC but a client wanted only USDC to be sent to them. So i deposit BTC to Binance account, trader for USDC and withdraw to clients eth address

I don't see them, am i doing something wrong or just lost 60k in USDC?

Address to which withdrew is 0x5aef590cffd215be0f75b70a868af7521b9d776b

1st Transaction in binance shows following info
USDC withdraw 15744
Txid: Internal transfer 6145405817

If he withdrew to intoken or erc 20 native wallet. There should not be any problem with that. Since Binance is involved, you have pretty much not lost your tokens. All you have to do is kindly raise a support ticket and it will likely resolved immediately

The Regulatory Authority shall impose penalties in accordance with its rights and obligations [...] in case of any violation of undertaking [...] activities that are not permitted in the QFC.

Is this a reactionary effort towards the tension between Iran and USA? Obviously, one can easily attribute the recent hike in bitcoin prices to that. Even Oil has surged to 25%, as well as gold. 2020 is already playing out to be a remarkable year
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Mining on a cell phone on: January 07, 2020, 08:25:05 PM
Lol... Whoever believes this crap of mining on a phone probably needs to do more research about mining. Mining require lots of processor power which i believe a mobile device let alone laptops and conventional personal computers can't handle.

You may end up downloading a malware onto your device because of the stupid greed of worthless coins and ignorance.

LOL. I am not a fan of crypto mobile mining for obvious reasons. Firstly, crypto mobile mining is possible, but it comes with a long list of reasons not to do it. Moreover, mining on your smartphone doesn’t even come close to traditional mining hardware or software. In the current state of cryptocurrency mining, doing it on your smartphone might not bring you enough profits to be worth the time and effort.

Secondly, we don't have enough powerful mining phones build for such crypto mining tasks.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Next big thing in crypto? on: January 07, 2020, 06:53:10 PM
I learnt that there's underground work ongoing to launch the ethereum 2.0 project this year. The bitcoin halving is also expected to be in motion and I'm of the opinion that this events would affect the overall performance of the market. The launching of libra coin could also happen this year marking this year, possibly more promising than last year.

These have been in offing for a while since 2019. I guess they are the foreseeable biggest events(halving and ethereum 2.0) for 2020 at the moment unless something as big as Libra news pops up again. Either way, I am very positive and optimistic for this year
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: STOs are still growing but very slowly on: January 07, 2020, 06:36:19 PM
STO is still less popular in 2019 because it is indeed the same thing as ICO in the sales industry is almost the same so that investors are reluctant to not glance at it again.
If the STO is compared with the current IEO then I say it will be better than the STO IEO because many believe that IEO has given confidence to investors so that it gives a big enough profit if it is successful, but there are also many IEO that are successful in other large exchanges.

I guess STOs has only been different from ICOs on paper than in applications. It promises a lot of value for investors but yet hasn't been able to woo investors appropriately. Perhaps, regulations are doing a hard one on them or the STO projects have been below pal and unable to deliver. Whatever the cases are, stakeholders have a huge challenge cut out for them if they want investors to take STOs more seriously than ICOs
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: ICO is dead these days, what next in the market? STO? IEO? on: January 06, 2020, 08:59:49 PM
IEO is the only reasonable option left, no one wants to invest their money on ICO projects anymore, if you invest on IEOs from top exchange you will see good profits

IEO has indeed become a good choice, compared to STO or ICO. But behind it all, not all IEO is always good and profitable. Because most IEOs have low exchange rates, they always suffer a loss in value. That means we have a loss. And a good suggestion to choose IEO in a large exchange.

Choosing a Large exchange for an IEO is not a problem but paying the massive fees charged. Secondly, IEO favors the developers on the long run (they get development funds from IEO proceeds and they have the opportunity to still release team tokens in the market), admist all these, I don't think the investors are protected enough.

In the end, most crypto projects are profit oriented and thus takes its profits from the pockets of investors. I want the next fund raising model to focus on protecting investors more. Not exchanges. Not developers but Investors
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Cut crypto loss at no cost on: January 06, 2020, 08:30:26 PM
If you lost a lot in crypto trading or missed big waves, stock some coins for free. That will make you feel much better.

Here is such a coin, of good potential.

* More secure than Bitcoin
* Coin transfer is instant (++)
* Ultra-low transaction fee
* CPU-mined only

Coins can be obtained via frequent lottery as well as various ways of contribution. For example, refer your friends. While helping STHCOIN to grow, you earn 50 coins for each successful referral.

Check it out at

++: To a certain type of addresses

See some responses starting here:

If you are adventurous and don't mind to spare a few minutes, drop me a STHCOIN (not SHITCOIN  Cheesy) address in the reply. I will send you 100 coins.

You must be joking right? Is this some joke coin or Meme coin. I am no apologist but I feel disgust when other developers compare their coins/tokens to Bitcoin just to gain cheap attention
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: What is it worth joining airdrop event? on: January 06, 2020, 06:42:40 PM
Don't consider participating these air drops as I have done this a lot and I have numerous worthless tokens in myetherwallet which does not have any trading volume, by the time you receive the token you will forget it as it takes long time for us to receive the tokens and they will distribute it when the value of the token is almost zero. It's not 2017 or 2018 wherein the tokens did had good value and bounty and air drop was profitable but not anymore.

This story was just a non sense matter of any airdrop program, there's no assurance to get good results in the end. I've been through it, since the start of cryptocurrency downfall which I expected good outcome but eventually failed my perceptions. Airdrop during old times provided us good profits, but the world turn upside down nowadays.
Everything went out frustrating and devastating.

No assurance whatsoever. Its just basically a case of a project within the exchange conducting an airdrop program for its holders. Its not new to latoken because its an old practice. The worth depends solely on the success of the project within the exchange
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Danger that awaits few coins on: January 06, 2020, 06:33:12 PM
I'm here to clear few facts about some crypto coins, i will start with exchange tokens, people are getting things mixed up when it comes to real use case, many thinks once a coin has a real use case it's a must buy well this is for you, let me start with binance, i love the exchange simply because of the seriousness of the team and CEO himself i believe that's why they made it this far but im not 100% sure about bnb token because it's use case ends on the binance exchange, outside the platform it's nada,  i belief any good real use case should be for the public but bnb token is limited in this area, everything about bnb ends on it's exchange.

My second point is pointing towards Proof of Stake coins, we all love earning with no big hassle like POW coins but at the same time have you ever think that apart from the POS ability what is the use case of the token or coin itself? Many keep making this mistake that once a coin has staking ability it's the best, this is why many POS coins loses value while you are holding them to get your reward annually.

I believe that POS ability is just a +, assuming the use case of a coin is for means of payments either with many merchants or so and the coin still has staking ability makes more sense than a coin with just staking ability alone, please be wise with the ways you define your real use cases

You have a clear message which says that true use case should move beyond the immediate crypto community or infiltrate the outside world to drive cryptocurrency adoption. You are right because, these use cases limited to just exchange or project comfort zones are no brainers and doesn't really help grow the community. On POS, I don't even see that as any use case. It's simply a consensus algorithm to me and nothing more. Both of the major algorithms is just profitable to the community if harnessed via staking or mining
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Day Trading or Long-term Hodl? on: January 06, 2020, 06:00:22 PM
I prefer day trading over long term

You must have a large heart to accommodate those blood racing moments in trading. The crypto industry is too volatile for the Weak. That's why alot of practice and patience is required. I prefer strategic investment to trading at the moment because of my busy offline schedule nowadays
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: High price but no volume on: January 05, 2020, 07:54:25 PM
It's back to square one if you are holding a coin or token for long term and finally altcoin season comes and the token or coin surge in value but has no trading volume on exchange, all your efforts and pain while holding is total waste, do not hold tokens or coins that have no demands, real use cases are what makes them very demanding

Hilarious! I am sorry for such a holder because truly, he has been holding a shitcoin. Apart from a coin or token having a good trading price, the other most important factor which will successfully complete a fruitful trade is the coin trade volume or in general, the liquidity which marks the high volume of activity in the market for the coin. But unfortunately, may noobs don't know this.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Paying with crypto is more accessible than ever on: January 05, 2020, 07:14:59 PM
It should be an old data but how much total merchants that accept crypto as payment has already changed. I rarely to see that people are using crypto like BCH or even litecoin to buy on the merchant. I have ever seen people use dash to buy the product from the merchants but it has already a long time ago.
I believe if there is a lot of differences on the how much merchants that is still accepting crypto as payment.

I think when options such as Bitcoin, ethereum, litcoin, bch and dash are presented as options of pagme t by merchants, people fondly go for Bitcoin and ethereum majorly because of its availability and ease of use. This can be witnessed with But more informed users or users with needs tailored to privacy will prefer dash and monero anyway
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Shit Exchanges, an end to good projects. on: January 05, 2020, 01:54:14 PM
You should continue to develop the project to be able to attract appropriate investors, so it is not good to exchange a switch in a hurry. Shit exchanges will kill the projects.
Nothing in the world harms the project more than listing on bad exchanges. Team members cannot even realise that with only one fault, they can ruin the whole project, especially such garbage exchanges as Latoken or Probit.
Projects team members definitely knows very well regarding potential exchanges. But they can't reach it there are many limitation such as they can't able to meet big exchanges demand. For those shit exchanges a huge number of promising projects going worst. And many real products based platform go to list shift exchanges but they are capable to list real exchanges.             

The problem is contributed by a lot of factors and as you have rightly underlined, high cost of listing in top exchanges are a huge problem. Why should a developer pay as high as $200k to $500k to list on these exchanges, its way way over priced in my opinion and in most cases, the project developers are left with two options; a) list with such exorbitant fee and recover it by dumping team tokens on the community (just like matic) or b) list in an average or shit exchange and ride your luck
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: What is it worth joining airdrop event? on: January 05, 2020, 01:22:21 PM
I have joined many airdrops, 80% of joined airdrops don't worth to wasted time. Last week, my ETH wallet was airdropped by Kicktoken in 888,888 amounts of Kick token. The contract has been frozen by contract creators and I can't burn the token or can't sell these tokens in the exchanges.

Does airdrops still pay? The last time I checked over 95 percent of them are scam but for the keybase/Xlm airdrop which was more legit. I urge people seriously hunting airdrops in this Crypto to take a break and rather pick a blockchain skill that will be beneficial to them on the long run
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Guys stop investing! Use your brain, please on: January 05, 2020, 12:16:26 PM
I just fed up on IEO projects that being held by P2PB2B! After so much warning, negativity why so many people keep investing in P2PB2B IEO projects? I haven't seen any successful project from their IEO launchpad, rather some good projects ruined themselves by launching the sale on the shit P2PB2B exchange.

How the ICO dead, almost the same way IEO hype is going to over for all of these shit, fake, scam exchange. Please think hundred times before buying any coin from the P2PB2B, Coinsbit, Latoken, Exmarkets, Vidax, Coinlim IEO launchpad!
Any thoughts from you?

Was a quite misleading topic for me, I thought for as second that you are asking us to stop believing in Crypto. Anyway, I am sorry for your loss or disappointment brought about by these mushroom exchanges. I believe you know better now. Shit exchangs hosts and launch shit coins. You might want to add Catex, Bitforex, Coineal and Dcoin to your list
